[ UPDATE: This establishment has since closed down ]
My love and I decided to visit No 4 Blake Street in North Perth for breakfast/brunch on Saturday, due to all the rave reviews (and also due to Miss Kuah, because she likes this place). I have to say, it was highly disappointing.
First of all, I was still waiting for my white vienna after 30 minutes. After which I managed to get hold of a staff member (some cranky asian chick), she remembered my vienna after she saw me… I have never had to wait 30 minutes for a coffee in my entire 33 years of existence.
Because they took so long with my coffee, I asked for it in a takeaway cup. And all I got was 1/4 cup of cream with a splash of espresso… it was so thick, I had to eat it with a spoon. REALLY???!!!! THIS IS NOT A WHITE VIENNA!!!
BARISTA LESSON (source)
Glass size: 250ml
A white Vienna coffee is a latte with cream on top and a black is a long black served in a glass with cream on top.
WORSE coffee ever. I do NOT recommend coming here for coffee, especially a white vienna. If your staff don’t know how to make a white vienna – TAKE IT OFF THE MENU!!!
If you need more confirmation on how to make a white vienna, read this barista manual – head to page 15.
Now onto the food… this took about 45 minutes from the time we ordered. I’ve been to other cafes that have been busier and food has come out quicker.
My partner’s bacon and egg sandwich was piss poor effort, seriously even a 7 year old could cook better than what my partner was served. The bread was rock hard, he didn’t bother eating it.
My food, the duck and potato hash was just okay. I was pretty hungry, so the serving wasn’t enough. It definitely wasn’t worth the wait! And definitely not worthy of a photo.
My rating – Well, obviously the barista has no friggin’ idea how to make a white vienna, therefore coffee is shit. And again, unless you have ALL DAY to wait for your food, then come here!
