Enjoy a cup of coffee from a historic site of Moana Chambers

Amidst the hustle and bustle of the shopping district in Hay St. Perth lies a chic coffee shop on the first floor of the century-old Moana Chambers. But attention, not everybody knows about this soon to be a favourite hangout, yet. Just opened five weeks ago, talks about its stylish setting, besides its delicious home-made foods and fine coffee, have already been spreading around business employees circle in the area. But hey, shoppers and visitors in the Hay Street Mall should know about it, too. Moana Coffee, that's the name of the coffee shop to look for when wanting to relax while having a nice cup of coffee.

It might be easy to miss the staircase to go up to Moana Coffee so look out for this sign.

I was one of the lucky ones who got invited to try Moana Coffee's homemade peach muffin and cappuccino. My first impression was " I like this muffin. It's not very sweet and it does not make me feel guilty I ate it." Let me explain what I just said. Although not everyone will most probably think as I do, there are muffins that are so rich in flavour, so sweet, and so delicious that while eating it, one would think how many calories to shed off the next day. Well, not the Moana Coffee's homemade peach muffin. Although not very sweet, the subtle flavour seems to me the reason it tastes so delicious. What more, it goes well with my cappuccino. What a treat!

What makes Moana Coffee interesting, in my opinion, is the spot where it is in. Moana Chambers is a heritage venue. Before transforming its first floor area which now houses Moana Coffee, as well as an art gallery and offices, this historic site was empty for almost twelve years. Now, visitors and residents alike need not just look up and wonder what can be on the floor above the ground shops. Visit Moana Coffee and get impressed with the transformation.

Moana Coffee also serves light lunch. Here are but a few ideas of its menus and prices: Vegetarian Quesadilla ($ 7.00), Chicken Quesadilla ($ 9.00), Tandoori Chicken Salad ($ 9.00), Pesto Pasta Salad ($ 7.00), Pumpkin & Chickpea Salad ($ 8.00) and much more.
