What’s in a name? Frisch and Barc is all about community. Back in the 1800s, Austrian Karl Ritter von Frisch made a Nobel prize winning discovery about bees and their beehives (a Barc). They’re all part of a community and the barc is it’s hub. Here, the owners have hoped to create a community hub and somewhere for locals to meet, their own little “barc” in Como.
Now we’ve had a little history lesson – let’s get to brunch! Inside, the Canning Highway café has a minimalist Scandinavian feel. There’s a beautiful bird mural that dominates the stairwell and there’s seating upstairs and down.
Nays and I ordered a couple of coffees, which went down a treat. They use Mano a Mano, roasted in West Perth. There are some delicious sounding dishes on the menu, which has a very International feel. There’s a Cubano, a buttermilk fried chicken sandwich (!), brioche French toast, Singapore chili crab omelette and more to choose from. There were abut 3 GF options, keeping me happy.
