I love coffee!
Anyone who knows me will tell you that and when I hear about a new coffee place opening up (especially if it’s close to home) I am there!!
I have two prerequisites for anywhere that is destined to become a regular for me – it must serve good coffee and it must have space….space for kids and space to park a pram!
I stumbled upon the ‘Crooked Spire Coffee House’ in Midland last weekend and it ticked both boxes! It is a much needed addition to all your regular franchise options that are dotted around Midland.
The Crooked Spire is different and that’s exactly what I loved about it. They call themselves an urban coffee and art house which is pretty spot on. You walk into a warehouse style building with a real industrial feel. There is loads of space inside, long tables with stools and a couple of lounge areas with comfy couches.
As soon as they saw me with my double pram, a lovely lady came up to say hello and offered to bring out some colouring.
They serve Yahava coffee as well as all of the usual suspects. I ordered an ice coffee and it was great that they gave me the option to have it on ice or blended. There were plenty of food options available – salads, toasted Turkish breads jam-packed with delicious fillings and even your good old fashioned vegemite and cheese toastie!
The sweet treats looked amazing! If you’re into raw foods they had a wide variety of things on display from ‘Rawsome’ who according to their brochure, do raw, gluten-free, grain-free, egg-free, dairy-free, soy-free, vegan and paleo stuff. Now that’s a mouthful! I opted for your average everyday brownie (full of sugar no doubt!) but it did not disappoint and I was happy with my choice!
There were no high chairs around that I could see but it was their launch weekend so I will ask next time I’m in there.
The walls are covered in local art and there are pieces commissioned for sale. They even had a small stage set up but unfortunately we didn’t catch any live music while we were there.
Spacious toilets out the back with disabled facilities, but no baby change.
Parking is available on site which is perfect considering they are located on a main road. Unfortunately this part of Victoria Street is a one way section, so if you miss it travelling west you need to do a loop around Great Eastern Highway (almost past Midland Gate). And if you’re travelling east you will need to do the loop anyway! If you know the area, it’s walking distance from Midland train station.
Crooked Spire is located inside the ‘G Centre’ which as far as I know is a shared space for the community to come together as they run a whole lot of different things in different areas around the centre.
Open 7 days a week! From 6am Monday to Friday and 8am on weekends, head to their FB page for further detailshttps://www.facebook.com/CrookedSpireCoffee
Not too far from Woodbridge Riverside Park (the next suburb along) if you’re looking for something to do with the kids afterwards. Bribes always work with my oldest.
