I had expected to write that breakfast at the Subi Hotel was an entirely different experience than dinner, but it's not. It's still loud, although I could see my food today. Being a football day, they were offering a reduced menu, a strange hybrid of basic brunch items and main meals. To be honest, I was disappointed they weren't offering the full breakfast menu which looks really interesting, and includes curious offerings such as a Moroccan brik pastry, duck egg, Turkish sausage, spinach and feta ($17.50) and tattie scone with bacon, fried eggs and tomato relish ($14.50).

We both ordered the Farmhouse - a full breakfast incorporating two sausages, a decent amount of bacon, toast (with butter in its own little bowl), creamy scrambled eggs, half a grilled tomato and a hash brown. At $21 it was filling and nicely cooked, though it was quite generic and would have been lifted by a decent relish or more exotic hash brown.

The Farmhouse breakfast

The coffee is good, though not very hot and comes with a complimentary shortbread.

Perth seems to panic when the temperature drops below 15 degrees in winter. People drag out their scarves and gloves and look as though they are ready to go skiing. Restaurants also seem to overcompensate, by dragging out their gas heaters and super-heating their customers who are already overdressed. It was ridiculously hot under the wall heaters inside the Subi, so we asked to sit outside despite it being 11 degrees. It was still hot and we took off as many layers as was socially acceptable, but we still probably looked as though we were having hot flushes.

I'm looking forward to returning to the Subi for breakfast again soon. However I will be wearing layers and double check that it's not a football day.
