Feeling a bit frazzled after my 4 year old giving me a sleepless night, I felt in desperate need of a good coffee. I dropped Little Chef at school and thank god it was my day off work!! I ran a couple of errands – then went in search of somewhere quiet for coffee and brunch for one. I’d stumbled upon a new-ish café in Joondalup a few weeks ago, The Buttery Cafe, and decided to give it a try.
The Buttery is fresh and modern, at the bottom of an office building on Shenton Ave – just near to Joondalup hospital. I think the lovely café has given the hospital workers a great alternative to canteen food – as they were walking across the street in droves. There is a covered alfresco area to sit in, I opted to sit indoors. It was already starting to get warm at 10.30am. Inside there are exposed bricks and pretty floral upholstery, the mod fit out gives The Buttery a feel of a café near Perth’s Inner suburbs. I loved it. Before ordering I also had a wander around the homeware section. There are some lovely gits for all occasions. I made a mental note they stock the Glasshouse Candle range, as I love those!
On the counter were some delicious looking cakes. In the chillier cabinet were lots of fresh looking wraps, croissants and other fresh food to take away. I decided to have my regular Chai Latte along with a special off the blackboard – the Italian Omelette ($15.50). The omelette was perfect. It was filled with mushroom, salami, ham and tomato. It also came with a well sized potato rosti and side salad. The rosti was buttery and just a little crispy. I loved it. Since the rosti wasn’t mentioned on the board I felt like I’d got a little bonus. It was a good sized meal and great value for money.
I utterly adored The Buttery café. It is a fabulous spot for breakfast (all day), coffee and cake, brunch and lunch. I left feeling full and much more awake than an hour previously. Invigorated enough to tackle a bit of Christmas shopping!
