If you’re a fan of Mary Street Bakery’s coffee in Perth, there’s good news for you – it has opened a dedicated coffee roastery in the CBD.
Offshoot Coffee, which is located on Hay Street, houses the roastery that provides coffee to all Mary Street shops. It uses a high-tech Loring S15 Falcon imported from the US; coffee operations manager Rummy Keshet said, “A traditional roaster is like driving a truck and a Loring roaster is like driving a Ferrari.”
The place also offers self-serve bakery treats, salad bowls, chia puddings, and even take-home coffee beans if you’re keen to make your own cuppa.
Offshoot Coffee is open Monday to Friday, 7am to 3pm at Hibernian Place, 480 Hay Street.
Ah, dessert, one of the world’s oldest temptation. Decadent and guilty as it may be, I follow Erma Bombeck’s advice, “Seize the moment. Remember all those women on the ‘Titanic’ who waved off the dessert cart.”
So here are the five best dessert spots in Perth for your enjoyment. Carpe diem!
22 Preston Street, Como
A Como institution, this gelato parlour is a fresh air in the summer. Come during the weekend and try out their special durian gelato!
Trustee’s 5-course Dessert Degustation, featuring “seasonal sugar extravaganza”, should not be missed. If it sounds a bit too much for you (it shouldn’t!), opt for the exquisite Snickers Bar ice cream.
Mainly known as North American-style diner, Brooklyn Lounge is also famous for its S’mores, which is a chocolate chip cookie sandwich with Nutella and marshmallow. Don’t forget to also taste the creamy NY Cheesecake!
