I’d been meaning to head down to Subiaco Farmers Market to try some of Wade Drummond’s (of Masterchef fame) homemade crumpets before we moved to Canberra. Unfortunately, I either arrived too late or couldn’t get myself out of bed in time. Luckily for me, Bri from Eatsmeetswest (one of my favourite food bloggers) told me that I could also find Wade’s crumpets at Studio Bomba in Leederville. Seeing as though Studio Bomba was right down the road from our house in Perth, A and I decided to head down before work one morning.
Studio Bomba is an eclectic space that is a café, shop and studio. The shop sells stationary, artwares, accessories and designer knick-knacks made by local artists, with a small café on the side of the shop floor which serves little bites such as macarons, sandwiches and cupcakes.
I love eating crumpets for breakfast but had yet to try a home made version. I like to soak each crumpet with a heap of butter and honey – pretty much drowning them in the process. Luckily for me, Studio Bomba serves the crumpets toasted but bare, so you can add the amount of butter and/or honey to your preference.
I loved these homemade crumpets which were fluffy and spongy. The accompanying coffee was really well made, with a strong coffee hit. All in all, it was one of those perfect winter breakfasts – one that I am so glad I got to experience before moving to Canberra!
Another important fact – A and I picked up a few take away coffees after this visit and can confidently say that there coffee is well made and consistent.
