44 King Street in the Perth CBD has been around forever and even though it is gets mentions in all kinds of food and travel guides they still deliver top quality food. We stopped by for brunch one weekday morning after the breakfast rush and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and great organic (at least what we ordered) food.
I was lucky enough to be sitting opposite the open kitchen so got to see the chefs preparing everything fresh. I love watching chefs working and these guys seemed to enjoy what they were doing.
Our drinks came out quickly and then there was a little wait for our mains but we weren’t in a rush so that was fine. I only wanted something light so ordered the tomato and avocado on toast. It’s a simple dish which was nicely presented using quality ingredients. This was perfect for me.
I must admit I was a little jealous when F’s breakfast arrived. He ordered the organic omelette with mushrooms and Spanish onion which came with toast and a slab of butter. I would have ordered it myself but I hate onion so that was out of the question. It looked delicious though and F confirmed that it indeed was.
44 King Street is the kind of place you can hang out in while enjoying a coffee or late breakfast. I know it gets packed at lunch times and for breakfast on the weekend so it’s probably not quite so relaxing then but our timing was perfect. You’ll find a lot of locals here as well corporate types and tourists so it’s pretty much anything goes. I have never been here for dinner but I hear it’s good so I might give that a go next time I’m in Perth.
