In an effort to extend Valentine’s Day to include a whole weekend of wining and dining, my husband and I wandered through the leafy streets of East Fremantle for a lazy Sunday breakfast at the newest hotspot – May Street Larder.
Olympic Swimmer Eamon Sullivan and Chef Scott Bridger (the brains behind the popular beachside café Bib & Tucker) have changed their tune slightly and are experimenting with new culinary techniques such as pickling, fermenting, preserving and curing their own meats. Don’t go past the in-house larder style deli where you can take home some of their homemade goods.
The May Street Larder menu operates entirely on seasonal produce with a large focus on vegan, paleo and raw dishes and is the first place in WA to offer CocoWhip – a 100% vegan soft serve option.
My husband and I arrived around 8.30am last Sunday morning, so there was certainly a vibrant buzz about the place whilst not being too busy. We were seated by the window and ordered two Campos coffees that were delivered promptly as we deliberated over the breakfast menu. I decided on the Zucchini, Lupin and Lemon fritters and my husband ordered the Soul Sandwich which was, and I quote, “Quite possibly the most amazing breakfast dish I’ve ever had”. So enjoy trying to make your mind up over this menu…
After breakfast, we perused the stock of house made relishes and preserves, as well as a gorgeous array of cookbooks and utensils, ordered a couple of takeaway coffees for the road and went out to spread the word about this amazing new eatery.
May Street Larder is open 7 days from 7am- 4pm for breakfast, lunch and coffee. Evening trading is currently in the pipeline though so stay tuned!
