Joining the Sunday breakfast crowd in Perth, we ventured out to a Floreat cafe called Fortysevenkirwanstreet. Sunday breakfast, I sure have missed you!

The cafe  is a short drive from Subiaco and one of those places that unless you are regularly in the area you would never know it existed. The neighbourhood cafe surrounded by residential homes brings life to the small shopping strip.

When we pulled up to the cafe  it was absolutely packed and looking at the people sitting on the grass, we almost decided to try another place however with some faith it turned out there was a table in the corner available for us. We were seated by a friendly wait staff and our coffee orders were taken straight away, she knew exactly what we were thinking!

Fortysevenkirwanstreet use Toby Estate Coffee for their blend of coffee. My cappuccino was a happy balance of blended beans and milk.  A cappuccino is served with a lovely layer of crema and sprinklings of powdered chocolate, when I scooped up the crema and chocolate as I religiously so do with every cappuccino, my taste buds picked up on a yummy marshmallow flavour!


I ordered the mushrooms on toasted bread served with cooked spinach, caramelised onions and a lovely dollop of goats cheese. Certainly not your average mushrooms on toast the goats cheese was a lovely topper for this dish, in combination with the spinach and onions.


DK ordered  the big breakfast dishes which was served  toasted bread, 2 poached eggs, sausages, bacon, mushrooms, tomato and a homemade fritter. It was huge by Perth standards and the best thing about ordering a big breakfast is being about to mix and match the food together on the dish.


Fortysevenkirwanstreet has an open feel to it, perhaps due to the large windows that face the street front, this Sunday morning it was orchestra of pots, the coffee machine and people chatting away all adding to that bustling cafe ambiance. The staff  were onto everything and we were looked after by several people without any dramas. Today the service was most exceptional and the breakfast fabulous!
