On a gorgeous Saturday morning, A and I woke up a lot earlier than we usually do. I asked A if she was keen to head out for a ‘breakfast date’. She keenly said yes and recommended a visit to Piccolo’s Corner in West Leederville, a café she tried a few weeks prior. I always love trying somewhere new, so we headed over to West Leederville and arrived at Piccolo’s Corner before 8am.
We decided to sit in the outside area located around the side of the venue. This area was full of mismatched and colourful pieces of furniture and you couldn’t help but notice the large mural which took up the majority of the side wall. There were also lots of plants littered around the area, and the combination of the plants plus the quiet suburban location made it feel very tranquil and I couldn’t help but feel relaxed.
We ordered a large coffee each to start with and it didn’t take long for them to appear at our table. Both were served in cute little mugs – my mug featured Kermit the Frog! A said that she didn’t mind her coffee, however I was a little disappointed with the milk as it tasted a little too overheated for my liking.
A ordered the Piccolo’s Breakfast (Free range poached eggs with bacon, avo and spicy capsicum relish served on toasted ciabatta) ($17.50) after seeing a picture of this dish on Urbanspoon. When it arrived at the table, it looked amazing. A said she really enjoyed this breakfast and thought that the perfectly cooked bacon and seasoned avocado were the highlights. She was generous in providing me a few bites of her dish and I loved the lightly toasted ciabatta and the perfectly cooked poached eggs. An excellent breakfast.
I ordered the Smashed Avocado and lime with chorizo, parmesan, a poached egg and balsamic glaze on toasted ciabatta ($18.50). This was another amazing breakfast, with the runny yolk of my poached egg pairing perfectly with the avocado and chorizo. The balsamic glaze added another element of flavour to the dish and overall, I was very happy with my breakfast and would definitely order it again.
I really enjoyed our visit to Piccolo’s Corner, which consisted of amazing breakfasts and a tranquil environment to wake up in. If I return, I would be trying one of the freshly squeezed juices I saw at the table next to ours, which looked really good. An important note to remember is that Piccolo’s Corner is cash only, with no ATM in close proximity.
