A new little place has opened up in Perth city this month and it is called Toastface Grillah, it is located in a lane that veers off from the Murray Street Mall and connects to Barrack Street. At Toastface Grillah, a name that bears resemblance to the rapper Ghostface Killah the menu on offer is a variety of grilled cheese toasties and coffee.
A new place in town
This unassuming eatery is a little haven away from the hectic shopping mall area, its decor is raw and simple with the unpolished wood and exposed brickwork. The covered open air courtyard is compact and the lack of tables is made up for with seats and benches, I just love the randomly placed greenery. We initially were thrown off with the diamond shaped fencing and walked straight past, but that in fact is the entrance to Toastface Grillah.
Grand Theatre Lane is one of the bigger lanes in Perth and it features a mural by artists Bonsai and Two-One .

The coffees served at Toastface Grillah come in two sizes of 8 ounces and 12 ounces, we ordered a takeaway cappuccino and long mac in the smaller size. They were good and certainly make our list of best value in town at $3.50 a cup. The espressos are only $2.50, very reasonable for Perth.
Coffees ($3.50 each)
We were so impressed with the grilled cheese varieties available on the board, each offering contrasting tastes to the other. Skipping the plain ham and cheese choice I went with the Pear Grillz and Dk being utterly obsessed with cheese went with the 3 cheese grilled sandwich.
The Pear Grillz is not for faint hearted, the main ingredient is Blue Cheese of course! It is however suited for a cheese enthusiast and served with pear and lime chutney. Personally I loved it, the blue cheese obviously dominates and the sweet pear is a nice addition.
The 3 cheese was a combination of the hard cheese varieties of cheddar, gruyerre and emmantel. It was delicious!

I would love to know Toastface Grillah’s secret as the toasties come out crispy and not oily or sloppy like mine! View our revisit post here.
