Need a new hangout for you and your friends? Somewhere where you can enjoy superb food and luscious coffees? If so, Gordon Street Garage is the place for you! Located in the quiet suburb of West Perth, up the road from Harbourtown, is the unsuspecting coffee bar and kitchen of Gordon Street.
Despite it’s tedious exterior, the inside certainly charms those with a penchant for raw, industrial interior design.The breadth of the Gordon Street Garage menu exceeds expectations. With different menus for various times of the day, created by the ingenious food architects of Duende, Balthazar and Il Lido, you won’t be leaving Gordon Street Garage in disappointment.
I decided to visit Gordon Street during the morning hours. While skimming the menu, my head told me to go healthy but my heart told me to get something with bacon. In the end, I ignored both my head and my heart, and chose to go sweet. I settled for pancakes ($16) and the banana bread ($8). I ordered a latte ($4) too, as Gordon Street is reputable for their coffees. When the food arrived, I was astounded by the thickness of the pancakes. Despite this, one bite of the cushiony pancake coated with the golden sweet, salty and smokey caramel, the smooth chill of cream and the natural fruits, captivated my appetite. My latte was bold, intense and rich with milk froth. The banana bread was warm, dense and sweet and was complimented well with the cool, sticky, indulgent chocolate mascarpone and I felt overly satisfied with my treat of a breakfast.
After finishing and speaking to the manager, she had alerted me, of the fact, that their coffees are 100% roasted at the venue. The website of their coffee products are linked below. You can sample these coffee products at Gordon Street Garage, where they hold public cupping events. The next one is on the 14th of March, 2015 so don’t miss out! Maybe you could stay for a bite to eat! No matter what the reason is, Gordon Street Garage is one of Perth’s best hangouts for youths where you can enjoy a delicious meal and a cup of caffeine goodness over light chatter!
