There is nothing better than discovering a cafe with a twist. My regular Brunch Club buddy V & I ventured into suburbia for our latest food excursion, this time to North Perth.
Hobart Deli looks pretty standard from the outside (besides the fantastic wall art on the side wall), but inside is another story. Comfy colourful cushioned chairs, shelves crammed with books and toy dump trucks feature as an art installation above the entrance. And the food…
Menu selection is short, but very sweet with many gluten free and vegetarian options. All eggs and meat products are free range – even the bacon! Since I’m still dieting I stayed away from the carb loaded naughty-ness and tried the GF Pumpkin Hash with Smoked Salmon, Kale Ricotta, Mixed Leaves & Poached Egg ($19.50). It was amazingly delicious. The pumpkin hash was almost like a potato cake, but way more flavoursome, egg was cooked perfectly (goo city) and I even enjoyed the kale ricotta.
V’s Wholemeal Toasted Bagel with Avocado, Tomato and Feta ($15) disappeared from his plate quickly. He was impressed!
The coffee was rich and well balanced. Even the Long Black went down nicely. If you’re looking for a cold treat though, the Dream Juice – pineapple, orange and coconut water tasted like a virgin margarita ($6). Yum!
The deli also stocks quirky greeting cards, cooking, design and children’s books and random gift ideas.
Good food, good coffee and shopping all in one – what more could want!
Do you try new things when you eat out, or do you stick to a favourite?
