While I have lived in Nedlands for 4 years, I have never quite strayed from Hampden Road and Broadway. Missing out on so many hidden gems in the Western Suburbs really did leave me with a little regret. Especially when my colleagues and friends tell me of all the yummy food in the area. Better late then never, I managed to try out the offerings of a popular patisseries in the area. If you are looking for a brunch places with great cakes and pastries, look no further! At Choux Café in Swanbourne, they only use pure butter and not those sub-par margarines. Without a doubt, the use of quality ingredient is reflected in their products.
We had a few things including chocolate cakes, sandwich and drinks! Absolutely fabulous! Delicious ganache with a layer of caramel at the top. Super decadent especially if you are a chocolate fan. In between its layers is a crisp one which gave it a Ferrero Rocher bite. Great praline flavors! With the chocolate coated cake, there was more balance with a mild bitterness keeping the sweetness at bay. All in all, everything at the Choux Café was pretty good. Not to mention if you opt for a mug of hot choc at $5.20, you get a super large one! Probably the largest cup I have seen in a long while.
If you live in the area, it would almost be impossible that you would not know Choux Café. Apparently its something like La Galette de France. A household name. So if you are ever in the suburb and looking around for a hangout spot, definitely try out Choux Café.
