Was here on my second day in Perth after my grueling first day at the coffee school. It was a Sunday so many places were closed. I spotted this place while driving and all really by chance. So I parked the rented car on the side of the road and went into the cafe to place my order. To my surprise, this cafe has many awards for their bakery and also some business of the year for 2012.
Taste: Pretty good but could be better if they can heat up for us. The raisin and croissant were good!
Portion: Slightly bigger than normal.
Service: Could have given a 4.5 or 5 rating ‘cos they refuse to slice the organic loaf which we ordered for takeaway. And the pastries were not reheated for us but I understand some bakeries/cafes feel that reheating will spoil the taste and texture of the pastries. But I believe light reheating is ok. Latte also took quite long to brew.
Ambience: Seating for 3 or more mainly on the outside. Inside are catered for 1-2 pax seating mostly. Weird staircase in the middle that leads to a shopping mall I think.
RTE: I would if on a Sunday again. 🙂 Otherwise will try other places.
Location: They have 3 outlets but I went to this one at 878 Hay Street, Perth City. Check out their website see last picture.
Finally I found some time to update this blog as I’ve just started tourwithroy.wordpress.com. Have loads of backlogs to update hence will be juggling this blog, sleepwithroy.wordpress.com and tourwithroy.wordpress.com. So please be patient with me!
Ok Blue Rock Cafe was the first place I had my meals alone on one of the mornings and with my friends for dinner. Quite a gem really ‘cos no one would have thought a cafe at the far ends of Hay Street would serve such good food! I had my brekkie here as well as dinner. Food is really good and compliments to the hard working crew and chef! Check out the favorites which we ordered!
Taste: We finished every bit of the food. Really good and tasty!
Portion: Above average for some.
Service: Excellent! Very friendly staff and always checked back with us if we were feeling alright.
Ambience: Nice and cosy. Night time was a little chilly but for me it’s aight…
Price: See captions and last pic.
RTE: If I’m staying in the same hotel when back to Perth, I definitely would.
Location: Ground floor of Comfort Hotel Perth City, 200 Hay Street, Perth City.
