Piccolo’s Corner – Leederville

Piccolo's Corner on Urbanspoon

It was my first trip to the cute Piccolo’s Corner and I was excited as it is regarded as a top spot for brunch in Perth’s inner suburbs. It’s found on the corner of a leafy neighbourhood street. IMG_9045

The busy café had no space for us in the shabby chic inside when we arrived on a Friday morning, so we hung about for 15 minutes, till a table came free.IMG_9042

We had a couple of prams in tow, so we sat in the lush outside courtyard which had a little more space. It’s lovely! IMG_9025

Often I’ll have a healthy juice, though when ginger is included it can be a bit hit and miss (too much and the ginger burns my throat!). This carrot, apple, beetroot, ginger juice was spot on! IMG_9027

My delicious dish was the mushroom bruschetta, $19. The mushrooms were sautéed in garlic, parsley, and butter and were ever so tasty. They were joined by a perfectly runny poached egg, asparagus, creamy Danish fetta and an onion jam. The toasted ciabatta was absolutely heavenly – thickly cut and  super fresh. I also got a side of avocado for an extra $3.IMG_9032

Little Chef, having already eaten at home, was more than happy with a freshly baked muffin. IMG_9023

We did enjoy Piccolo’s, though one of my friends had to prompt the waitress three times to get her food (which was something already pre-made in the cabinet). Usually Kez wouldn’t mind so much, but she was only days away from having her second baby – the poor thing had to sit and watch us all eat whist she was ravenous! The waitress did apologise and bring an extra muffin, but Kez would have preferred to simply have her food in a timely manner.

Another note to make is the lack of parking. I’m unfamiliar with the area and drove around for about 10 minutes trying to find a spot that wasn’t “no parking” or required a permit. Eventually I spotted a place in between two cars and snapped it up – only to realise when I got back to my car that it was in fact a “permit only” spot. Whoops – I missed the sign and got my first ever parking ticket!

SO it was a very expensive lunch, but never the less I enjoyed my first visit to Piccolo’s corner – the simple food was spot on!IMG_9019
