A retired business owner, my passions are cooking, photography and eating. I use all three of these when I write for recipeyum.com.au which is on HubGarden

Menu is Extensive, and Food is Excellent-Worth a Visit
I was at a loose end and could not decide where to have lunch. Eventually, I decided on a Shopping Centre as I also wanted to see what was in the sales.
I decided to go to The Coffee Club at the Morley Galleria, as it was an easy place to meet a friend.
Who are they?
The Coffee Club is a coffee house-style cafe chain. It was created in 1989, mainly, as somewhere to get good coffee and grew to include cafe/bar/restaurant chains with extended menus. Their headquarters is in Brisbane and they have over 340 franchises in Australia, New Zealand, New Caledonia, China, and Thailand.
Do You Have to Wait for a Table? We were surprised at the lack of tables available at 11.45 am! We purposely went for an early lunch and although this cafe seats about 100 people, we had to wait for a few minutes before several tables became available. We then had a seat and were browsing their extensive menu.
Where is The Coffee Club? Situated near the entrance to Myer, it is a large coffee lounge and although there is no table service and you have to line up to place your orders, and therefore pay at the counter, they DO bring the meals to your table.

What to eat at The Coffee Club I always have a problem deciding what to eat at The Coffee Club as there is so much choice! An added bonus is that they state how many kj are in each meal and this is great for those who have to watch how much they eat. Another bonus for seniors is that they offer a discount, though this is not openly advertised, and it is one of the few cafes in Perth that offer this discount.
Their menu is an all day one and therefore the 20 or so breakfast dishes are available whenever you want them.
Eggs Benedict is two poached cage-free eggs on toasted ciabatta. This is topped with a rich Hollandaise sauce and served with baby spinach and mushrooms and I had this several weeks earlier when we went for brunch.
Another of the meals I sometimes have, and which is always very tasty, is the open cheese and bacon sandwich served with chips. There are several varieties of open sandwiches, all of which I have tasted have been very good with plenty of filling.

They also do excellent omelettes with a choice of four different ones, and my favourite is the sautéed mushrooms, crumbled feta, baby spinach and tasty cheese, served with toasted ciabatta and blistered cherry tomatoes. This is a great vegetarian one with just 2656 kj!

What we ate On this occasion, I ordered the chicken Parmigiana which was a panko crumbed chicken breast, topped with a mild salsa, crispy bacon pieces, and melted cheese, and served with coleslaw and chips. It was delicious and not too large as chicken parmigiana often is, and cost $18.90.
My friend ordered the chicken burger which was a fried panko crumbed, crispy chicken breast, with coleslaw, rocket, tomato relish and swiss cheese. This was served on a brioche bun with chips and cost $16.90.
