We’ve returned to the office for the new year, bleary-eyed and looking back longingly at our festive break… But there’s a light at the end of the tunnel, in the form of two delightful emails we spied in our inbox.
Not one, but two lush eateries are venturing into the brunch game. Hallelujah!
A favourite for waterside wines, East Freo’s jovial Jetty is now offering brunch every Saturday and Sunday. Like their regular menu, Jetty’s menu has a Mediterranean lilt – whether you fancy fried eggplant topped with tahini, amba and egg, or perhaps a croissant loaded with chorizo, pickled red onion, tomato, cucumber and salsa verde.
Also on offer are classically tempting breakfast plates – think crab omelettes, leek and potato rosti or pancakes topped with berry jam and cream. Feeling a little rough around the edges? We reckon that “morning after” bolognaise and provolone toastie will cure what ails ya.
As if that wasn’t enough, another Mediterranean-leaning eatery is also curing your weekend woes with a brand new breakfast menu. Leederville’s Servo is bringing their A-game to their breakfast offerings – from the indulgent to the fresh and flavourful. Spy smokey shakshouka, fried chicken atop house-made crumpets with salt and vinegar corn ribs, or really let loose with breaky chips, served with hollandaise, bacon crumb, chives, plus sweet and sour onions. Hubba hubba.
Level up your brunch game with their Servo Sunrise package, which will have you indulging in 90 minutes of free-flowing breakfast bevvies alongside a feast for you and your mates.
Of course, weekends are for your nearest and dearest – whether that’s your beloved sprogs or dogs… There’s both kid and dog-friendly menus on offer.
