This weekend is set to be a long one. And with the mercury dropping over the weekends, I am definitely going for a run. Then comes the big question! What is for breakfast?! Finishing my run with some friends last week, we settled for a highly rated café in West Leederville. Do not be mistaken, it is not along the main café strip but rather, near to Lake Monger amongst the homes. Piccolo’s Corner is a quaint little place, old décor, and with a random matching old antiques. The sitting on the inside is quite limited with an extra 10 on the outside, so definitely come in early rather than late.
Drinks were aplenty but we decided to settle on some cooler fruit juices. Piccolo’s Corner is definitely acing it in the juice department. You can mix and match fruits from the board all for the same price! My friends were all being lame. With a base of watermelon, Mei added pears and apples while Andrew only had apple while Hendra had watermelon. =.=! I settled for a more refreshing Iced Green Tea to keep me hydrated.
Piccolo’s Corner has a decent offering when it comes to brunch. Mei’s choice was the melted cheese bagel with jam and poached eggs. She loved the melted cheese on the bagel half. But to finish her meal, she was stealing bacon from her hubby Hendra to sort out the remainder eggs and bread. Andrew had a similar dish without the cheese. He hates cheese!
Mine was the smashed pumpkin, basil pesto, poach egg and ricotta. Mei felt that it was an overload of carbs and it seemed like that to be honest. It was after all, pumpkin and bread! But the combination was lovely. I am not the biggest fan of pumpkins but the mix of pesto, ricotta and pumpkin was flawless. It was sweet, salty, and fragrant in each bite along with the mild tartness of the Ricotta. Superb!
Picollo’s Breakfast avocado, bacon, chutney, and egg with an extra serve of bacon. Bacon overload here. But who can fault with the king of processed meats. With all the little bits of salt and crispiness, its lure is hard to resist for sure.Hendra had no complains here. A mix of avocado, eggs and chutney was pleasing. As expected with a good mix of flavors!
Thinking of breakfast this weekend? Sick of cooking? Definitely try Piccolo’s Corner if you have not. There must be a reason why locals love this place. But then again, do not get killed by the hype. Just kick back and enjoy brunch ;)! Also, with the ridiculous queues plaguing brunch spots like Sayers and Tuck Shop, it is a blessing to have other places like this!
