Following a visit for a bit of Christmas shopping at the Dymocks Subiaco one day members secret sale, we stopped in at the nearby Whisk Creamery for a brief coffee.
Coffee is synonymous in Subiaco, finding a good espresso never seems to be an arduous task. Cafes are peppered along Rokeby Road from the train station all the way to the west end where you’ll find the likes of Juanita’s, Kookery and a little patisserie called Chez Jean Claude. Whisk Creamery is fairly new to Subiaco and as we discovered when placing our orders at the counter Whisk also serve soft gelato, frozen yogurt and smoothies. There were a number of delicious looking pastries at the counter and we ordered a few of the palmiers to go with the long macchiato coffees.
We were served glasses of water shortly after taking our seats at the front of the cafe. It’s always nice to have a glass of water with coffee.
The perfect looking palmiers were delicious, such a good biscuit to have with a coffee. There are some interesting variations to the French palmier but I prefer the classic one of puff pastry, sugar and a little egg wash. I could have easily eaten a dozen of these!
The long macchiato was robust, a cute little love heart was etched into the crema and milk froth. I’ve never had a bad coffee with latte art and I wonder if there is any connection between the art and a good macchiato? All in all it was a good afternoon coffee.
Seeing the gelato machines behind the counter, we will be keeping Whisk Creamery in mind when craving some silky smooth gelato. The caramel gelato definitely has my name on it, but, then again so does the Green tea. And maybe pannacotta?
