It was a very happy coincidence when one of my friends suggested brunch at Piccolos Corner after Perth breakfast Queen Liz Sheehan from The Breakfast Confidential had recommended it to me. Oh happy day.
Piccolos Corner is nestled in lush West Leederville and is (funnily enough!) the corner of a house that has been converted into a cosy cafe which is bursting with character.
The menu provides some delicious choices, and there’s so much more not included on the menu – home made cakes, slices, biscuits, muffins and freshly squeezed juices.
The coffee is really good and if you are dining in – it’s served in a delicate antique tea cup but if you like a decent sized cup of coffee, I would order it in a takeaway cup.
I was trying to decide between the avocado and lime or scrambled eggs and opted for the eggs at the last minute. This means I’ll have to go back super soon to try the avocado and lime with bacon and feta – YUM!
My friend ordered the home made beans with chorizo and said it was truly delicious.
Piccolos Corner also has a fun old fashioned styled lolly counter, it took me back to days of chocolate buttons, freckles and musk sticks.
The inside of the cafe is quite small, but there is a bigger garden area outside. We headed there around mid morning and I was lucky enough to grab a bench outside, but there was a bit of a wait for other people to get tables, one family even resorted to going home and getting their own tables and chairs. I loved it!
After brunch I had a quick look at some of the beautiful character homes in the street and stopped to admire this gorgeous cherry blossom tree, wishing I could take it home with me.
Piccolos Corner is definitely worth a visit if you enjoy good food and coffee made with love, with loads of character and charm on the side.
What’s your favourite breakfast spot?
Have you discovered a fab new cafe recently? Would love to hear about it.
