Boutique Travel Cafe, Aveley – Mexican breakfast

I’m a fan of the Boutique Travel Cafe in Aveley, and I consider it my “local” cafe in Ellenbrook – check out my review from when it first opened in 2013. The coffee and food is always good, and certainly better than the close by Mecca Gourmet which many people (mostly on Facebook) rave about for reasons that escape me. Today I tried their new Mexican breakfast, consisting of chilli con carne with a fried egg and a piece of sourdough toast ($18). The chilli had a surprising kick and plenty of jalapenos in it, although I would have liked a few more beans – especially at breakfast. If you like a spicy start to the day then this is definitely a dish worth trying.

Best big breakfast I’ve had in ages at fortysevenkirwanstreet, Floreat.

Everything on this “paddock” breakfast was top class, particularly the scrambled eggs, the mushrooms and the potato cake just poking out from under the bacon – not cheap at $22.90 but the quality justifies the price as far as I’m concerned. The coffee was outstanding too. Renay had the Bircher muesli with apple crisps, which was quite delicious and a very reasonable $12.90. Fortysevenkirwanstreet is open from 7am every day, but make such you get there early, it’s very popular and fills up quickly!
