Be it day or night it is definitely one of the most busiest and bustling strips in Perth. Take a stroll down the long sidewalk and you'll be bombarded with the difficult choice of choosing where to go and what to eat to satisfy the hunger beast inside.
Perched on the corner of Mary Street and Beaufort is the now well known, established artisan bakery and cafe, Mary Street Bakery. Open from 7 am to 4 pm, its brunch menu brings many a food forager to its open doors. If the brunch menu does not seem to take your fancy the upper tier front counter is stacked with plenty of tasty morsels - a bread and pastry lovers fantasy.
Greeted warmly and escorted to a table straight away, we joined the roar of chatter of many a happening breakfast date.
Scanning the menu, the rest of the words faded away once my eyes encountered the words fried chicken, pancakes and maple syrup all the same sentence.
My fellow food forager seemed to think the same and so two were ordered and the wait began.
As you can see below we were not disappointed.
Fried Chicken/Pancake/Sunny-side Egg/Maple Syrup
Crunchy, moist Buttermilk Fried Chicken on an island of golden glazed pancake surrounded by a a sea of sticky maple syrup. Topped off with a sunny side molten yolk fried egg, each mouthful was a perfect mix of savoury and sweet sweet ecstasy.
Needless to say we left our plates quite bare and walked out with silent and satisfied hunger beasts.
So if you love me some fried chicken for breakfast or need to curb a growing carb craving, you've definitely hit the jackpot with Mary Street Bakery. Just make sure you're early, ready to eat and tell me too so I can meet you there.
