Aliment Cafe West Leederville Review French Toast

Brunch? Some call it a late breakfast, others an early lunch. Me, well I like to think of it as morning tea on steroids. You could say it’s my favourite meal. If your timing is right, you beat the breakfast rush, giving you a long leisurely chance to catch up with friends before the lunch crunch.

 

My latest brunch review will have you drooling and looking at French toast in a whole new light.

 

There’s a very good reason why Aliment Cafe in West Leederville is fast becoming my favourite place for brunch and client catch ups. Well actually there are a few but the number one reason is pretty special. It’s their daily specials which seem to be a rotating affair with more than a few drool worthy dishes popping up on a regular basis.

Aliment’s regular menu includes your regular brunch favourites just a little left of centre together with a few Aliment signature dishes including Corn and Zuchinni fritters. There is always a variety or two of French toast, although Aliment seem to be able to take this dish to the next level without the need for deconstruction.

 

Brunch is an all day affair with the breakfast menu running in conjunction before 11.30 am together with lunch after this time.

 

There is also a rather impressive “specials” menu that will have you coming back for more, more, more. Dishes like lemon meringue French toast or breakfast gnocci. I even spotted a lobster and potato rosti pop up on their FB feed but unfortunately, it was of limited supply and sold out before I arrived.

 

The cafe is unassuming, slightly tucked away from the road and you could almost walk straight by. While finding a park can be a complete nightmare and parking inspectors seem to always be in attendance to make sure you are doing the right thing, once you’ve found a place to park the car and you’ve experienced the menu, you will be heading back for more. Trust me.

 

The place is mainly frequented by office workers and staff from the adjoining building, so it really depends on the time of day as to how busy things can get but there are plenty of seating options both inside and out, which means we’ve never had to wait to find a table.

 

Staff are always friendly and attentive and you never feel rushed, making it the perfect place for longer catch ups with clients or friends. Service can take a little while as most dishes are cooked from scratch while you wait but gosh they are worth the wait.

  • I am a big fan of brunch! It’s my favourite meal to eat out as well!!!

  • Sounds amazing. I love french toast and those two versions have my mouth watering!!

    • I actually haven’t had a dish at this cafe that I haven’t loved. All amazing.

  • Natalie @ Our Parallel Connect

    Looks fab… I’ve never had savoury French toast..: might be a new one to try

    • I actually can’t remember the last time I just had the basic French toast. I think I now prefer sweet over savory.

  • I must confess: when I first read your heading I thought it was AILMENT cafe, which would not be a good name! The fritters, french toast varieties and breakfast gnocchi have got me drooling. Unlike Natalie below, I’m never had sweet French toast – we only make savoury in our house!

    • I did the same thing when I first stumbled on the cafe. LOL

  • Alicia-OneMotherHen

    I am drooling over that blueberry French toast!

    • I’ve been using all the will power I can muster to not go there each and every day. When hubby gets back from sea, I’m going to treat myself for my birthday but I’m insisting on at least walking there and back (10 km each way).

  • Kirsty @ My Home Truths

    Why do I live all the way on the East coast while you get to indulge in this deliciousness in the West? Looks absolutely scrumptious!

    • We need to find you a sponsored trip to Perth and I can show you the sights, starting with brunch of course. 🙂 Hoping the knee is improving and you are being totally pampered in the meantime.

  • I had to re read the cafe name heheh!
    All those lovely goodies to eat 🙂

    • I know. I did the same thing when I stumbled on the cafe.

  • Looks so delish! How I MISS a good Aussie cafe. Hankering for some French toast now!

  • I saw your yummy review over on Facebook today, I had to come see these delectable foods, really awesome, the Corn, Zucchini and Sweet Potato Fritters caught my eye!!!

    Hope you have a great week! Karren

    • Thanks Karren. Will be popping over to case your WW post later today.

  • Great photos! I’m glad you could enjoy yourself. Brunch would be my favorite meal of the day if I could live that lifestyle, because I love the combo of sweet and savory foods. And brunch is the time of the day when I need that extra bit of energy!

    • Thanks Tina. This was a little while ago. I’m that behind in blog posts at the moment. I really must head back.

  • That’s literally just down the road, I will have to go check it out. I’m always looking for a new place to have lunch.

    • Tag me in if you do or even better let me know beforehand and I will pop in if I can. Any excuse for French toast.

    I don’t usually brunch, however the food looks delicious! Savoury French Toast for the win!

    Di from Max The Unicorn

    • I’m usually more of a savoury girl myself but the lemon meringue is divine.

  • Jess

    yummmmm, I’m a sucker for a corn fritter, and those look amazing.

    • One of the best corn fritters I’ve ever had. Hope you are well Jess? We must catch up soon. I’m keen to hear how you are getting on and about Unconvention.

      • Jess
