I have always wanted to give Harvest Espresso a try and finally, my wish was granted. On a Sunday after doing a CXWORX and BodyAttack class in the morning, the family and I decided to visit Harvest Espresso for brunch. Coincidentally, I stumbled upon the Harvest Espresso voucher in the Entertainment Book and decided to use the voucher since it is going to expire in a month’s time. So yes, Harvest Espresso for brunch it was!
Harvest Espresso has been the talk of town for a very long time and it is one of the most popular cafes around Perth. Expect long queues during the peak hour but the wait is worth it. As the family and I arrived just before 12pm, we were lucky that there was a table available for us. I was really excited to see what a small cafe like Harvest Espresso could offer. If it is so popular, it must be good.
I had the Bubble and Squeak ($19.50) which comprises of two eggs, sweet potato crisp, vegetable farce, cornflakes and spiced pumpkin puree. Presentation was spot on. Flavours? Top notch. The poached eggs were executed perfectly with that oozing yellow liquid flowing through the generous patty. Overall, the Bubble and Squeak was delicious, fresh and full of flavour, topped with an extra crunch from the sweet potato crisp.

Dad had the Full Harvest ($21.50) which consists of a choice of eggs and toast, free range bacon, tomato, pure pork sausage, mushrooms and wilted spinach. The Full Harvest was fresh, generous and hearty in portion. Everything on the plate was executed perfectly whether it is bacon or mushrooms. Having the Full Harvest is guaranteed to make you satisfied and a very happy chappy.
Mum had the Mushroom Omelette with roast capsicum, tomato, goats’ cheese, onion and toasted sourdough ($15.50). Mum enjoyed her omelette very much and thought that it was very light, fluffy and tasty and that there was a generous amount of ingredients in the omelette. It was very lovely.
While having our mains, we noticed that every table at Harvest Espresso seemed to have ordered the Mango and Coconut Bread. It must be one of the most popular dishes at Harvest Espresso. We took a small peek over the next table and the Mango and Coconut Bread looks good! The decision was made and to finish off a lovely lunch, we had the Mango and Coconut Bread with seasonal fresh fruit, ginger cream, pistachio and fruit coulis ($19.50) for dessert. The flavours of mango and coconut together was a matchmake in heaven. The bread itself was light and fluffy. Together with the fruits, it added fresh, cheerful and vibrant colours to the dish.

Good food, good coffee, friendly service, simple and lovely decor, bright and bubbly is what Harvest Espresso stands for. It is humble and it does not boast. Apart from having delicious food, Harvest Espresso is also very popular for their coffee and they use Five Senses coffee to make their brew. To all the coffee lovers, Harvest Espresso is the place to be. Oh and the menu at Harvest Espresso changes seasonally so you will get a different menu every season. Whether it is winter, spring, summer or fall, I will be back for more.
