10 Oceanside promenade, Mullaloo
Breakfast served Sundays only 9am – 11am
I am going to try and slowly work my way out of “the shire” more often (my friends and I refer to the area including Inglewood, Mt Lawley, North Perth, Maylands, Northbridge as “the shire”), so I decided to really venture out and visit the Mullaloo Beach Hotel for their Sunday breakfast. Accompanying me is the baked bean aficionado – Clive, who I think will be making many more appearances in my reviews!
It was a beautiful Sunday to have breakfast at a beachside location and the Panorama restaurant in the MBH has a nice view of the ocean with heaps of natural light to make for a lovely setting. Clive and I were seated away from the window which was a bit disappointing but we could still enjoy the view from where we were. The waitress was very quick to come and take our coffee orders, I ordered a cappuccino and Clive ordered a flat white.
The breakfast menu isn’t very inspiring but I didn’t really expect it to be from a pub. Don’t let that deter you though because it is nice to go out and have bacon and eggs, eggs Benedict, pancakes or an omelette to choose from rather than two pages of fusion cooking. Sometimes all you want is bacon and lots of it! The prices are average for a Perth breakfast, ranging from $5 for toast up to $19.50 for the MBH Big Breaky – chipolatas, bacon, tomato, mushroom, 2 eggs, hash browns and toast. I really like that they have a kids menu available for breakfast as well. It’s $12 for a choice of bacon and a fried egg, sausage and a fried egg (both with toast) or pancakes, syrup and icecream. This also comes with a glass of juice.
The coffees were nice. Good temperature and no bitter flavour. I wished that I had ordered a milkshake or something to satisfy my milk craving!
The meals came out in a reasonable time. I laughed at the garnish, I haven’t seen those sprouts used on a dish in a long time. Especially the way they are just pulled out of the punnet and plonked on top of a meal. My Eggs Benedict were enjoyable but the hollandaise was a touch vinegary. There wasn’t too much ham and the eggs were cooked perfectly runny.
Clive’s first comment was that the bakes beans were not very nice and tasted cheap. The hash brown was nice and crispy and his eggs were also cooked perfectly. I think this big breaky did have a nice balance of everything in just the right amount.
Overall the experience at the Mullalloo Beach Hotel was good and the service was attentive and friendly. With the MBH being a fully licensed venue you could have quite a fun breakfast there with a beautiful view to look at.
