Mary Street Bakery’s Team Opens New Dedicated Coffee Shop

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.”
