"One pot egg" with chili sausage, pepperonata, gruyere and potato - was surprised by how good this was, one of the tastiest things I've eaten in a long time! #perth #perthfood #perthfoodblogger  #foodblogger #foodblog #food #foodie #foodstagram #ozeatingwa #morsels #breakfast #perthbreakfast #perthbreakfastblogger #pertheats

We stopped for a quick breakfast at Kettle Cafe in Lathlain this morning, and I ordered the “One pot egg” dish with chilli sausage, pepperonata, potato & gruyere ($17). This isn’t the kind of dish I’d normally order – it’s a violation of the egg / bean / tomato separation principle – but today I was converted!

It wasn’t as spicy as I was expecting from the description, but it was by no means bland – the sauce was beautifully rich, the potato perfectly soft, the cheese went all melty and the egg brought it all together! This was one of the tastiest breakfast dishes I’ve eaten in a long time.

The relatively small menu at Kettle Cafe includes some traditional items and interesting dishes such as sweet potato with haloumi, poached egg, black quinoa & herb salad ($18), banana bread with vanilla cream, berries & pistachio ($14), hickory smoked mushrooms with poached eggs, rye & labne ($18) and the “fill up” breakfast with chorizo, bacon, mushroom, rosemary potatos, tomato & eggs ($20).

There was also a selection of delicious looking sandwiches in the counter fridge including a pulled pork, red cabbage & brie roll which I would have bought for lunch if I’d been heading home.

Kettle Cafe was getting very busy by the time we left, and I can see why. Recommended.
