Monsi’s Cafe +Homeware shopping Claremont

Posted in - All Day Breakfast & Breakfast & Perth Cafes on May 26th 2014 0 Comments Breakfast 1

Monsi’s Café in Claremont offers all day breakfast and sits two doors down from the homeware lifestyle brand Laura Ashley. It is a little hard to find if you are not familiar to the area but you can access the car park off Gugeri Street past the round about. The café is also situated a few minutes walk from the Claremont Train station.

The café is owner run and the service is nothing short of energetic, it was pretty clear the patrons were regulars to the café and we were welcomed in much the same way. Be it that it was a cold day in Perth the Monsi’s café was pretty full inside. The menu is Chilean inspired and draws on healthy fresh flavours. If you are not really sure about Chilean food think empanadas, chorizo, flat breads, salad and the Chilean hot dog!

In the way of a big breakfast there were two choices on the menu - Vegetarian or Chorizo.

Dk tried the vegetarian ($19.95) which caught a few admiring comments from people passing by. It consisted of eggs (your way), mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach leaves, avocado and two slices of toast. The avocado was fresh and the tomatoes and mushrooms lightly sauteed. It was a delicious dish.

Breakfast 1

I went with the chicken flat bread that was pre-made and stored in the glass cabinet, it was toasted and made up of chicken, spinach and mushroom. A small portion of tomato and onion sauce was provided on the side. It was a nice and light meal.

The coffee was strong in body and I believe it is also a special South American blend.

Overall a lovely unpretentious café in the heart of Claremont that serves tasty food and strong coffee.

Homeware Shopping in Claremont

Claremont has some great homeware retail stores and they are all laid out to inspire and create. I consider myself a creative person however sometimes I struggle with colour matching, often getting it completely wrong. It might be easier to purchase items online but wandering through the high end Claremont area I found some bargains as well as some great ideas to take back home to my little 1930′s cottage. The stores in Claremont are bringing back some competiveness combined with a high level of service. Here are a few but not all of the stores I discovered.

Sheridan Australia

An Australian lifestyle brand that stocks bath towels, quilts, sheets and accessories for the bedroom. A large range of sheets from 300 thread count up to 1200 thread count. During summer thick 100% cotton beach towels are released in store. Be sure to join as a member to reap the benefits of ‘secret member sales’.
