Me: “Hey Sarah, want to go for breakfast on Saturday?”
Sarah: “Yeah ok, but I want pancakes.”
Right. So as most of you know my sister has coeliacs disease and her craving request gave me the fear. Where the f*** was I going to find good gluten free pancakes that didn’t resemble a dish sponge.
Rubra coffee supply the beans for both the house blend and single origin. There’s also a rainbow of lattes available such as turmeric, beetroot and matcha. A heap of smoothies to choose from will keep the non-coffee drinkers happy as well as the fitness crowd. You can opt to add protein powder for $3. Although with a smoothie costing $9, it would make for an expensive drink.
The large all day menu spans sweet and savoury with most dishes being gluten free or able to be made gluten free. There’s also plenty of dairy free and vegan options. Don’t worry meat eaters – there are lots of dishes with bacon too! The top price you’ll pay for brekky is $24 for either the big breakfast or big veggie breakfast. Most meals will set you back about $15-$20.
Of course Sarah ordered pancakes. There are two options available. Matcha green tea pancakes ($20) served with winter berry and apple compote, coconut, crushed almonds, honey, dairy free ice-cream or Canadian pancakes ($20) served with maple cinnamon whipped butter, bacon, maple syrup and flaked almonds.
When you’re craving pancakes, it has to be Canadian. Sarah said these were a coeliac’s dream. They were light and fluffy, tasting so good she doubted their “gluten free-ness”. The bacon was crispy and plentiful. Lashings of maple syrup and whipped butter meant there was never a point of wishing you had just a touch more to finish the dish. These really could be the best gluten free pancakes in Perth.
For me, it had to be the slow braised beans ($18). A big bowl of rich tasting beans was filled with chunks of spicy chorizo, corn and topped with fried eggs and jalopenos. Soft corn tortillas were perfect for making into a scoop. I mean who wants to use a spoon!? I loved that the flavour was a touch sweet upfront followed by the kick of some decent spice. This was a great filling brekky.
Lot Six Zero is the perfect place for people with intolerances looking for the kind of breakfast they no longer find so easily. No one misses out here, there is something for everyone.
