One of the most hidden and unassuming cafes in Perth CBD is the Country Road Café. I stumbled across it when shopping in the city one day. I’ve visited a couple of times, as I enjoy the quiet courtyard, just a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of Murray Street. They serve piping hot coffees and fresh breakfasts and lunch, made from quality produce.
On this occasion I stopped here for a coffee and lunch. Admittedly, we’d first tried Venn and Halcyon – but it was the beginning of January and it would appear that a lot of venues were shut for the festive season. Remembering CRC, we soon found a quiet spot for a chat. I was there with my lovely second mummy Mrs B and my proxy siblings – my childhood neighbours and dear friends.
I had a ham, avocado and cheese Turkish bread toastie. The ham was thickly cut and delicious. The humble side salad is often overlooked and underdone. The salad on-the-side at CRC was a colourful surprise and a lovely touch. The coffee was really hot too, something I value, but it’s hard to find!
