Just kidding- the name is just a bit of light hearted fun on behalf of the owners. However it does what it purports to do, you won’t forget it in a hurry. The name might pique your interest but after one visit you will be salivating for more, as this is one of Perth’s top brunch spots!

Each month there is a special offering from the innovative chef and this is called the Culinary Artist, and this item stays on the menu for a month. It is always exceptional in taste as well as looks. On our first visit, we were amazed by the culinary masterpiece that was presented to us.  The chef is an artist and the plate is his palette. It consisted of a giant waffle, topped with baked ricotta and pears that had been poached in mulled wine. Contrasting with the sweetness of the organic maple syrup was the crisp prosciutto.  The dish was prettily dressed up with beautiful white blossoms, adding a touch of glam to the dish. We have also indulged in the maple soy hash which consists of soy, maple, marinated, braised pork, served with hash browns, eggs, tiny toffee apples, rocket and pretty edible flowers.

On recent visits, we have enjoyed the smashed avocado with cottage cheese, on lovely, dark rye toast, topped with a generous serve of pistachios and drizzled with balsamic vinegar. On the side were some polenta chips. We also highly recommend the Belgian waffle, topped with large, poached strawberries, goats cheese, bacon and candied pecans.  The mélange of sweet and savoury flavours is incredible.

Coffee is above par so kudos to the barista.  Service has always been top notch on every occasion. Staff are friendly, efficient and courteous, even in the early hours. So the next time you find yourself in leafy green Royal Street in East Perth, be sure to drop into Kinky Lizard Espresso Bar, your taste buds will thank you!
