For as long as I know The Food Pornographer (TFP), she has always been taunting me with pictures of muffins, sandwiches from City Farm cafe. And it doesn’t help when you are hungry in the train, and reading her tweets. So for this trip to Perth, City Farm cafe was on top of my list.
I made a date with TFP and her sister, Juji (who is the genius behind Juji Chews) for breakfast at City Farm cafe. The cafe is located in East Perth which was easily accessible via the Yellow Cat bus from the city. It was a wet and cold morning and I cannot wait to tuck into breakfast.
Both TFP and Juji ordered the scrambled eggs which came with two slices of sourdough toast. And of course TFP could not resist ordering a side of bacon. For me, I got myself the scrambled egg with aged cheddar and chives.
As some of you might know, I am not a big fan of egg. But the Tasmanian Mersey Valley’s aged cheddar in the scrambled egg was so delicious – it was creamy and savoury. I liked to have the egg with the sourdough toast (and butter) – it gave a bit of crunch and also cut through the richness of the cheddar. The coffee at City Farm was fabulous too. My flat white was aromatic and not too bitter (I usually have my coffee without sugar).
While we were having breakfast and chatting, I cannot help but notice that the staff started to bring out the muffins and sweets. There were spinach feta muffin, brownies, cookies. I want them all.
City Farm cafe is a delightful joint and I can totally understand why TFP patronised the cafe so often. I would too.City Farm Cafe
