When A and I were in Canberra, one of our favourite cafes to go to was Sweet Bones, a vegan café that served fantastic baked goods. Coming back to Perth, I was keen to try somewhere similar, and seeing as though Pearfect Pantry is always busy, my friend Tash and I decided to try it.
Pearfect Pantry is located in Wembley, in amongst a row of apartment blocks. The venue itself is small and a little cramped inside, but the outdoor area offers more space. Tash and I initially sat outside but had to move inside due to rain. Luckily, we were able to get the last table, as Pearfect Pantry is busy on weekend mornings.
The food menu is predominantly focussed around vegan options, although they’ve made it easy to add an egg or two and turn a dish vegetarian instead. There are only a few items that have meat products and there is also gluten free bread available for those that have dietary restrictions.
Tash had been to Pearfect Pantry a few times previously, so I ordered as per her recommendation. The spiced warm carrots on guacamole toast topped with poached eggs, marinated soft cheese, chilli salt, and coriander ($18) left me with a little mixed – I loved all of the different elements other than the spiced warm carrots. The spices in the carrots were really overpowering and I felt that they didn’t correspond well with the other elements. I ended up abandoning the carrots and enjoyed the rest of the dish, especially the guacamole with the marinated soft cheese and chilli salt.
Tash ordered the avocado salsa with lime, roasted field mushrooms and tomato, hash browns, rocket and aioli on sourdough ($18). I had serious food envy over Tash’s choice – it looked amazing and Tash said everything was really good.
Pearfect Pantry also has a fully stocked cake and baked goods cabinet near the counter with so many amazing looking options. I’m excited to head back to Pearfect Pantry one day for just coffee and vegan cake.
