One of our favourite cafes in Perth is Yelo on Trigg Beach. There’s a relaxed vibe, a large range of healthy food available and the coffee is made with Fiori coffee beans and Bannister Downs Milk (the perfect combination!). We also enjoy bringing our puppy Mia with us. There are always heaps of dogs and their owners outside enjoying their coffee and the beautiful view. Thanks to Twitter, I learnt that a new addition to the Yelo family had opened in Mt Hawthorn called Yelo Kitchen, a small take on their big sister in Trigg.
A and I are fortunate enough to live a few streets away, so headed there early on a Saturday morning. We arrived to find the tiny place packed to capacity, with a large group of cyclists taking up all of the outside area and a small family inside. Yelo Kitchen is really tiny – with the inside space fitting approximately 6 people ‘comfortably’ with little yellow stools and crates outside to fit a few more. Regardless, we headed inside to order.
There’s a huge array of tasty and healthy options on the counter. Yelo has a variety of wraps, sandwiches, muffins, slices, snacks, fruit smoothies and juices. They aim to provide quality, organic food which is evident from their food display. I ordered my usual favourite of Yelo Trigg – the Bacon and Egg wrap ($11) whereas A went with a simple Mixed Berry and Chocolate muffin ($4.80). Two coffees were also ordered and it didn’t take long for our food and coffee to arrive.
We took our food down the street and sat on the ledge of an abandoned house. The coffee was a tiny bit too hot to start with but once it cooled down it was a relatively good coffee. The Bacon and Egg Wrap was to the exact same standard as Yelo Trigg – full of egg, bacon and spinach in a lightly toasted wrap that adds a bit of crunch. The wrap was seasoned naturally from the bacon and the egg was creamy.
A’s muffin was also happily eaten, as it was fluffy and full of fruit. After we had finished our food, the bike group left and we went to sit on the cute little yellow stools out the front of Yelo Kitchen while we continued drinking our coffee. There’s no view like Trigg beach, but it was still nice to sit and watch the various happenings on the quieter end of Oxford Street.
A and I will definitely return. It’s a great little place to pull into quickly (with lots of parking out the front) and grab a takeaway coffee and quick bite to eat.
