WE have heard lots of positive reviews about Atlas Food and Coffee in West Perth, so over the festive break Dan and I decided to pay a visit.
Although located in Hay Street, we found there was plenty of paid street parking available.
The décor is simple and bright with light wood and neutral colours.
As it was a hot day we decided to sit inside rather than in the alfresco area.
It’s counter service at Atlas and although it’s not my favourite genre it seems to be pretty standard these days and the staff at the counter were very friendly.
They also had self-service stations with a collection of sauces including barbecue, ketchup, Tabasco, HP, as well as Himalayan salt and pepper.
And for those with pets there’s a water jug and bowl at the water station.
For drinks we both ordered the flamingo cold pressed juice ($7.50) which was delicious and refreshing – the coconut, rockmelon, mixed apple and dragon fruit was the perfect combination for the hot day.
We both wished there was more of it in the bottle…
The food came out very quickly and the dishes were presented so perfectly that we were both reluctant to eat them.
I ordered the miso scrambled eggs ($18.50) which had an umami twist on this brunch classic with the addition of miso, fish roe and bonito flakes.
To balance the dish they added a delicious sweet element of soft beetroot jelly.
Dan ordered hot cakes ($19.50) which had a lovely texture.
The combination of peach, white chocolate foam, matcha and dried raspberry worked harmoniously.
The creative presentation of the white chocolate foam inside a waffle cone in the centre of the hot cakes was what we loved the most about the dish.
Overall, we gave Atlas four spoons for their menu, friendly service, value for money and creative presentation.
I can say that Altas has left a good point on our brunch atlas and we will be back again soon.
