Try a tasty toastie at Stomp Coffee
Stomp is a strange name for a cafe, however, this place is not at all strange! It is unusual for this cafe strip in Angove Street, North Perth though, as most of the cafes have seating inside, which spills out on to the footpath, but Stomp Coffee has a lovely area out the back, which is shaded by several trees.
The back seating area
It is the sort of coffee lounge you may just miss, as there aren't any large signs around and from the main street, it would be a bit difficult to see. It is also across the road from all the main cafes in this area. On the day we went for lunch, it was very easy to find parking in a 3-hour spot.
The entrance is very a long, narrow laneway, which I would describe as "quaint".
Stomp has been operating for just over 3 years now and the menu has a selection of toasties, which are jaffle-type toasties, and smaller meals. I find this a refreshing change as many cafes have huge meals, which I do not want to eat in the heat of the Perth summer.
Stomp is owned by three guys, the main owner being Chris, and then part owners, Jared and Tait. We were served by the good-natured Tait!

They describe the a cafe as a place which serves "great coffee" (to which I would have to agree!), as well as breakfast and a continually changing lunch menu. They are open 7 days a week.
They also have a mobile setup which can be seen at some of the events around Perth including festivals and weddings, and they do private functions.
Tait says there are 3 important factors for the quality of your daily cup of coffee, and these are - the actual bean selection, the equipment has to be top quality and the people serving behind the counter.
The menu featured two pages of food options which was good for me, as I often have trouble deciding. Prices were very reasonable and cheaper than many other cafes in the area. They ranged from about $6 to about $11 for a wrap, and most of the toasties were around $10 each, with the dearest being $13.
I would describe their food as "uncomplicated" - nothing really unusual, but everything looked inviting. Some of the fillings in the toasties were bacon and egg with a homemade sauce; the Reuben - Swiss cheese, Dijon, dill, corned beef, and sauerkraut; and The Bae - honey bacon, cheddar, relish, and egg.
I chose the bacon and egg one which they named The Bae, and although not a huge serving, it was delicious and the side sauce/relish had a slight kick to it and just made this an excellent choice. The Bae cost just $10, which is very reasonable and far cheaper than most coffee lounges.
Best bacon & excellent egg
There were three of us dining this day and one of my friends chose the Reuben which cost $12, and as my friend could not finish this, I finished it for her, and it was also excellent.
The other friend chose the chicken and avo, the most expensive at $13, which was roast chicken, avocado, tomato, cheddar and Dijon, He assured me this was also delectable!

They make the most unusual iced coffee, which had shavings of chocolate in it.
They have a blackboard menu as well and the food on here also seemed very appetising.
Stomp also have a cabinet of healthier desserts though no one could fit any more in after our toasted sandwiches.

Stomp is situated at 39 Angove Street, in North Perth and is right in the heart of the Angove street strip. There is a car park only a few minutes away and parking is also available on the side streets.
