A little gem right under your nose in Maylands
Piccos Kitchen is one of those great places that the locals have been keeping tight lipped about, lest the rest of Perth might find out and swarm the place like bees to honey. And for good reason too - it's fantastic!
Lovely, relaxing start to the day with great food!
From the outside, Piccos is nothing special but you know that old saying 'don't judge a book by it's cover' - well this is one place you certainly want to get inside first. It has that urban, earthy feel, the staff are super friendly, the coffee is beautiful and the food is mostly locally sourced and organic. All of this complimented by a beautiful range of some of WA's best artisan products available for you to take home when you've sufficiently gorged on tasty breakfasts.
For me it was poached eggs with house tea smoked salmon, spinach and dill hollandaise and for my non-egg eating boyfriend, it was chorizo and beans hot pot with sausage and bacon on the side. Delicious! The home made orange juice with orange ice cubes was a great touch also.
There is a great selection of cakes and salads available as well as some of the biggest sausage rolls I've ever seen in my life (which I shall have to return to try one lunchtime).
Piccos Kitchen is open for breakfast and lunch Tuesday to Sunday and dinner on Thursdays and Friday as well. I've been stalking their seasonal dinner menus on the Piccos Facebook page and all I can say is wow! Who would have thought, all this on Peninsula Road in little old Maylands. Definitely adding it to my list of fave Perth breakfast spots.
