Admittedly, I don’t usually visit chain coffee shops. Though thinking about it, places like Dome and Miss Maud’s are WA businesses, which we should all support. Similarly, The Coffee Club is an Australian company and it recently opened its doors at the very new “Joondalup Gate”. It has a funky fit out, with a large communal table – great for spreading out with the morning newspaper. This particular Coffee Club is owned by local couple Neil and Andrea Platts.
It’s in an excellent spot – right opposite the humungous new Bunnings on Joondalup Drive. It has a take away window – perfect for the tradies to grab a coffee on the run. The Coffee Club is also opposite a soft-floored, shaded playground, so also great for a catch up for the mum’s n bubs. There are lots of child friendly choices on the menu, as well as a dedicated kids menu too.

I had the roasted beetroot, feta & candied walnut salad ($16.90) This was tossed in fresh baby spinach, along with snow peas and tossed in a zesty fat-free lemon and oregano dressing. I also added squid to this salad, which was some of the softest squid I’ve ever had. I really enjoyed this salad – beetroot, feta and walnut is a favourite combo of mine.
