Joondalup has a funky new cafe and you need to know about it.

Paper Avenue opened last month and is already proving to be a massive hit. I visited on one of their first mornings of trade and it was pumping, and no wonder given their wide-ranging brunch menu which encompasses dishes like lemon zest banana bread, the pumpkin and quinoa roasti, a beef brisket brioche, and a number of “wellness drinks” – funky lattes that are available hot or cold.

We ordered;

  • the strawberry swoon latte
  • the matcha/apple latte
  • the tumeric latte
  • the beef brisket brioche with slow-cooked smoked maple brisket, apple, mint and red cabbage slaw
  • the brioche French toast spiced with nutmeg and cinnamon, and berry and star anise compote
  • the Avenue breakfast with slow-cooked maple brisket, sauteed mushrooms, a poached egg, grilled cherry tomatoes, quarter inch bacon, and house made chutney on sourdough
  • the avocado bruschetta with poached free range eggs, parmesan shards, and organic, spicy dukkah

If you’re heading that way or, even if you’re not, they’re well worth a look in.
