Breakfast at No 4 Blake Street, North Perth

The downside of having a destination wedding is that you have to prepare yourself that there will be some of your friends and family that you really want to be there but for whatever reason they will be unable to attend.  The Boy and I understood this fact from the outset and were so incredibly grateful for all that were able to join us whilst remaining totally sympathetic to those who could not.  One of my dearest friends Fran whom I have known since my early University days was one of those guests who unfortunately were unable to come.  She only recently bought her own business and as a result of her dedication, hard work, blood, sweat and tears it was growing steadily at a rewarding rate.  Upon our return to Perth, we were both keen to tally up a lunch date to share our stories and fill her in on my wedding details.

A delicious display but alas not for me.

I recently read a mouth-watering review on Foodie Cravings on a new restaurant opened up in North Perth called No 4 Blake Street. As Fran lived north of the River and was pushed for time; I thought it was the perfect half way point to meet up.  Located on a quiet road off Fitzgerald Street this recently opened venue is open for breakfast and lunch all week and dinner from Tuesday through to Saturday. They have a decent range of gluten free options including gluten free bread and are happy to alter dishes to suit food allergies. They have even recently started offering evening degustation.

Croque Madame

Fran ordered the Croque-Madame; a classic French snack of a toasted ham and cheese sandwich with a fried egg on top.  Using Emmental Cheese and their house ham with a little béchamel sauce smeared in there these simple but delicious ingredients were made for each other.

Mushrooms on GF toast

I realise that I tend to be a bit of a mushroom addict and do have a bad habit of over ordering them for my breakfast but this time I simply couldn’t resist. Medallions of juicy sautéed mushrooms were piled generously high with baby spinach, feta and Pedro vinegar on no less than three slices of fresh toasted grainy gluten free bread. Now that I’m off the bridal diet I found it so liberating to eat every last morsel on my enormous plate without any guilt that my dress wouldn’t fit me! The mushrooms oozed with flavour and the spinach salad was carefully dressed to maximise taste without being overbearing.

Three little dickey birds all in a row…

Despite being quite full, I really wanted to check out more of their food and enquired which of the desserts were gluten free.  Unfortunately I was informed there were none suitable! What a shame, I was so impressed with their ability to cater for me up until this point. Us gluten free peeps love sweet too.  The waiter did feel bad for me and said he would head to the kitchen as see what they could find.  He returned fairly promptly with a selection of three chocolates: Cointreau, Elderberry and Pear.  If this didn’t happen to be my second breakfast for the day I would feel left a little sad on missing out but thankfully these luxurious bites were about all my stomach had room for.

No 4 Blake Street is definitely a place I have to come back and check out again, hopefully next time round there will even be some desserts so we can do their dego!

8 Thoughts on “Breakfast at No 4 Blake Street, North Perth

      • Been there now twice since you posted this and the second experience was just as good as the first. I highly recommend the chicken dish for mains and the rabbit for entree…dessert was the passionfruit and was phenomenal! I have a dairy intolerance and they catered for my needs.

  1. There is nothing wrong with being a mushroom addict! I have a friend who is vegetarian and doesn’t like mushrooms so eating breakfast out can be hard. What do you have for breakfast if you don’t like mushrooms? The mushrooms on your dish look amazing.

  2. I was meant to go here recently but had to postpone. We’re going for the to-die-for dinner if the menu is anything to judge by. I can’t wait!

    Hopefully they address the gluten-free option for desserts for the next time you go back :)
