It excites me when somewhere new opens up in Joondalup. I hope that it’s a little piece of Beaufort Street – without the 60km round trip. We live near Joondalup, which is often referred to as Perth’s second city. It has pretty much everything you need – except an established, quality dining scene like inner city suburbs Leederville, Subiaco or Mount Lawley. Gipsy Boy is a welcome addition to Joondalup and could well become a favourite local haunt of ours.
Sisters, Kacie and Bekki opened Gipsy Boy in May. The vintage-styled café is brimming with old style décor, teapots, lampshades and comfy chairs. There’s a little outside courtyard too. Gipsy Boy is open for breakfast, lunch and “coffee and treats” – the mars bar slice looked particularly scrumptious!
The three of us visited Gipsy Boy for breakfast last week – it was so convenient only being 5 minutes from home. We sat in the window, overlooking the residential tree-lined Regents Park Road, just north of Joondalup Hospital.
I had the Avocado Bruschetta ($12), since I’m quite the avocado addict. Chunky avocado, tomato, red onion and soft cheese sat upon toasted bread. It was super fresh and well-seasoned. I really enjoyed it.
We ate from the weekday menu – the weekend menu is a bit more substantial. I actually discovered Gipsy Boy through a scrumptious looking Instagram pic of their Nutella French toast – which is available on their weekend menu – I have to head back on a weekend for that! The breakfast enchiladas look pretty tasty too.
