The Dizzy Witch Cafe

7 January, 2011




Firstly… say hello to another rarity – a place that does ALL DAY BREAKFAST! I love these little finds! The Dizzy Witch Cafe is conveniently located in the quiet part of Northbridge so you can enjoy your breakfast without seeing the ravers still meandering about after a night at Rise Nightclub (as funny as it is to watch). Shirley Adams, Clive and I met at the cafe for an impromptu brekky together and as we sat down Clive commented how it had the feel of an old English tea room with a quirky hippy edge. I think that describes it perfectly!


The menu is quite cool with most of the dishes having Wicca themed names. Prices ranged from $5.50 for “Toast the Witch” up to $18.50 for “The Warlocks Last Meal” – organic bacon, free range eggs, grilled tomato, potato rosti, Dizzy’s mushrooms, sausage and toast (vegetarian option also available). Dizzy’s mushrooms are something truly amazing, but I will get to those shortly! The menu choices are fairly standard for breakfast with the only “different” dish being the Moroccan Eggs – Fried free range eggs with home-made dukkah, hommus, mint, red onion & tomato relish on Turkish bread. This is in no way a negative aspect because The Dizzy Witch does their breakfast so well, better than some places who have menus full of weird and wonderful “breakfast” meals.

You have to go up to the counter to order at the cafe and the staff taking orders were really friendly. I heard them chatting with regulars and even remembering their coffee orders. Wow. Clive and I both ordered coffees, I got a freshly squeezed OJ and for food I ordered the Moroccan Eggs and Clive chose Mushrooms on Toast Esmeralda – Mushrooms with thyme, garlic and cream on toasted organic bread with sausages. Shirley Adams also ordered a coffee and a chocolate milkshake and for food she had the Warlocks Last Meal.

The drinks came out in good time. The cappuccino tasted different, like they had used dark chocolate on top. I enjoyed the coffee, it had a nice rich flavour that wasn’t bitter and the temperature was also perfect. The OJ was delicious. It really was freshly squeezed and had a natural sweetness.


Our meals were so delicious… my mouth is watering thinking about it! The Moroccan Eggs were amazing. I love dukkah and the combination of that with the hommus and fresh mint and relish was perfect. No flavour was more overpowering than the other, it was balanced and flavoursome.

Clive’s meal was like nothing I had ever seen. Those mushrooms and their creamy sauce were delicious (yes I tasted his food for him… just to make sure it was ok to eat). Clive said it was the first time he had sour dough that he really liked and he didn’t know how else to describe the mushrooms except that they were really really nice and it was good to have them cooked another way other than fried.



Here is Shirley Adam’s review of her breakfast,
“I would have to say it was one of the best breakfasts I have had in a long time. The food was exceptional. I ordered their version of the big breakfast and it came out with 2 eggs of choice (I did my usual scrambled- was awesome nice and creamy) bacon (cooked to perfection), roma tomato (full of flavour), sausage, hash browns and the best mushrooms I have ever had. Both me and Clive agreed they were awesome, they came in a garlic cream butter and were perfect.


The only let down was the drinks, being the guzzle guts I was already being that morning with my meal size, I ordered a skinny cap and chocolate milkshake. There was something not quite right with the shake it was ok and not icy cold enough. The coffee wasn’t too bad (they’d used cocoa sprinkles rather than chocolate- which was different)”

The Dizzy Witch Cafe has now become Shirley Adam’s regular haunt (lol haunt) and I have been recommending it to anyone who asks. The food is amazing and the service is spot on. Definitely somewhere to visit again!
