Another great addition to the cafe scene in 2015 is May Street Larder. This is the third food venture opened up by olympic swimmer Eamon Sullivan (teaming up with Head Chef Scott Bridger). Just a couple of months old, this place is well becoming a local favourite. It is situated along Canning Highway in East Fremantle, just opposite East Fremantle State Swim. It prides itself in sourcing local fresh produce and serving up the best of what the current season has to offer. For this reason, their menu is constantly changing. Head up their website for up to date menu.
With the help of the big bright eye-catching sign, you’ll not miss May Street Larder. Upon entering, the brightness and airy-ness of the place instantly lifts you up. The yellow and white and blue deco and also the fresh flowers placed on every table makes it so inviting and you’ll feel right at home. Grab a table and get a menu from the counter. Decide what to have, order at the counter and you’ll get this super cool poseable table number which the kids will have heaps of fun with.
This is by far the best reading nook, chillaxing or simply a great catch-up corner. So homely. When I was there I saw a few moms with their prams (and of course their babies too) sitting there and having a great time. You don’t have to worry about your pram being in the way etc. Thank you May Street for creating this social corner.
In the middle of the cafe, there is a buffet table which you can grab your cutlery, napkins, a humungous range of condiments and a huge tank of icy cold water.
We tried the belgium waffles and their fresh fruit tart. Disclaimer: the belgium waffle is no longer on the menu. Remember I mentioned that they serve seasonal produce? Yup, in order to serve the freshest ingredients, they constantly change their menu. Which suits me perfectly as I always have an excuse to return. From memory, their current waffle dish comes with buttermilk fried chicken. Of course some items on the menu remains the same.
Always always leave space for their fruit tart. Again, the fruits on top are whatever thats in season. We’ve had peaches, mangoes, strawberries, plum, figs, blueberries, kiwis on the number of occasions we had the tart. The base melts in your mouth and the custard is just nice. Not too sweet that it over powers the sweetness of the fruit. DELICIOUS! And my favourite part of this cafe…. Drumroll please…. FREE BABYCINO!!
Another speciality of May Street Larder is their cocowhip. Made from only Coconut Water, Organic Bio-Fermented Coconut Powder & Vegetable Sourced stabilisers, No added sugar no preservative no nasties. Its basically a vegan and bio-fermented coconut soft serve. Great for kids (and adults too) who are sensitive or allergic to dairy. May street larder is the only place in Perth serving up cocowhip. You can add muesli, berries and various toppings etc on top making it the perfect summer or anytime breakfast.
To end, have a look at their current menu and drool.
