Open plan for mother's day..



 I know there are many who unbelievably don't wake up with a need for coffee to kick start their day, sometimes I wish I was one of them.. nah I'm only kidding :) Aimee and I were already going to have brunch in Open Plan Coffee Co. a relatively new cafe/restaurant on Fitzgerald St. in North Perth, two things straight up that confirmed this as an excellent choice, the sign above and their business ethos 'breakfast, brunch and most of all coffee'.. I knew I was in safe hands :)


The food too is finger licking good, see above! There's something wonderfully comforting about toasties and hot coffee when the weather turns and there is a slight chill in the air. Toasties filled with ham, dijon, oozing with cheese and did I mention the rosemary and parmesan butter, as the French would say.. miam!


The best company, excellent food and coffee, great service, who could ask for anything more, and yet...


... there was more! Sitting on the doorstep this morning a stunning autumn themed Debra Hayes bouquet from ma famille in Sydney.. merci beaucoup mes lovleies! For any Perth coffee aficionados out there, I guarantee you won't be disappointed in Open Plan! Hope you had/are still having a fab weekend.. happy Monday, take care and stay safe...

  8. Canada and the US have many common holidays but they often fall on different dates. So Mother's Day is the same in Oz as here. That cafe has an awful lot of apparatus. I assume the beans were as good as the equipment.

  12. I must confess Im not a coffee addict and I need gluten-free bread so I don't often have toasties - but that didn't stop my mouth watering when I read this post. It all looks very welcoming and then to be welcomed by flowers at home.... oh my!

  19. This restaurant is one I KNOW I would like to visit because it appears efficient, humorous (the outdoor sign), the food and the smart, intelligent clientele! Aimee makes the place bloom as does your lovely bouquet.
