Who needs a house, anyway?
Mosman Park cafe Good Things really manages to live up to its name. The menu truly is full of, well, good things. Similarly, “the Hulk” really embodies its namesake, with its mega green, mega smashy ways. Smashed avo is mixed with peas, mint, pickled onion, sesame, whipped feta, chilli – a delicious mountain of green on its toasted sourdough base.

Sometimes a knife and fork is just too much, you know? On those days, I like to grab a loaded toast from Chu Bakery and stroll over to Hyde Park. While their pastries are hard to go past, if you need something green in your diet their avocado toast is a winner. Perfect avocado smushed on top of whipped feta and topped off with sriracha and a four seed mix. Crunchy, creamy, spicy deliciousness, simple and best enjoyed in the sunshine.

Hylin’s smashed avocado is a sight to behold. Topped with two poached eggs, house-made ricotta, wasabi peas and spinach, then finished with some mint and lemon – this will tempt even the most devoted fry-up fan into some green goodness.

Just around the corner from Hylin is another smashed avo fave. Former corner store come leafy neighbourhood coffee spot, Piccolo’s Corner has been serving their crowd-pleasing smashed avo for years. Smashed pea and avocado piled high on ciabatta toast, topped with a poached egg and chorizo crumbs. Dig into this in their cute courtyard, pat some dogs… is there a better way to spend a Sunday?

Open by Duotone
Duotone’s Northbridge sister restaurant is really taking smashed avo to the next level. Served with poached eggs, hummus, dukkah and feta, this dish will keep you sated all day. And if you’re keen for vegan options, they’ll even swap out the feta and eggs for felafel and tabbouleh.

Bib and Tucker
Seaside favourite Bib and Tucker has long been setting the standard for brunch in Perth (and lunch, and dinner, for that matter…), and their avocado toast is no different. Paired with sourdough bread, heirloom tomatoes, basil and fried feta, this is a breakfast you don’t need to feel guilty about.
