It was the day before the New Year, it was hot, I had just arrived back to Perth and was down with the cold, it wasn’t a good time to cook but we needed to eat! I looked up a few cafes that I wanted to go to but they were all closed. Thank God for instagram at a time like this, one #perthcafe hashtag search and I found Pearth Organic Kitchen. Described as an organic cafe serving breakfast and lunch, it was right up my alley. I needed something healthy and simple, an organic cafe fitted right in!
Pearth Organic Kitchen is an open aired cafe along Cambridge Street in West Leederville, tiny in size, modern and chic and full of sunshine and brightness. Good vibes. Being one of the few cafes that were opened on New Year’s eve made it quite busy. There was no table available but thank the lucky star I spotted Mei from Turban chopsticks who was having brunch with her cousins. She had spare space at her table and kindly allowed us to share her table. Thank you sweets! 🙂
We proceeded to order after securing our spot. Pearth has an All Day menu and boasts the fact that all their produce is organic and locally sourced, and their food is free from processed products and refined sugars. They feed the gluten intolerant, the vegan, the vegetarian and meat eating people. Something for everyone!
For drinks I had the Cold drip coffee served with tonic water ($5) and mum had a Matcha latte ($6) with a shot of coffee, commonly dubbed a Dirty Matcha Latte. I have never added tonic water to my coffee before so it was an interesting drink. It made the coffee slightly fizzy but didn’t change the taste too much. Good for a hot day! Mum had the dirty matcha latte but didn’t think too much of it. Not sure what it was , possibly the ratio of the matcha and the milk? I didn’t get to try it, no sharing when I was sick.
For my meal, I had the Pearthect parmesan eggs ($20). The smoothie bowls seemed to be the specialty here but I ordered this instead as I liked the sound of the name! Weird I know, ordering based on the name of a dish. The Pearthect parmesan eggs came with scrambled parmesan eggs, avocado, spinach, tomatoes and crusty sourdough bread. I think the amount of vegetables on this dish swayed me as well. One tends towards the healthy items when one is not feeling well. It delivered on the healthy end, clean and crisp on the palate. I thought the price was on the high end but if all the ingredients on this dish are organic I can understand why. Organic produce usually cost a fraction more than usual! The cost of living healthy!
Mum went with the Warm banana bread with coconut yoghurt and berry chia jam ($17). She liked it as it was tasty but not too sweet.
Pearth Organic Kitchen had just opened late December last year and seemed to have gained traction with the foodies in Perth. Another great addition to the healthy cafes in Perth. All the best with the endeavors!
