May Street Larder is our pick for delicious cafe eats in the west
May Street Larder is the third venture by swimmer turned business man Eamon Sullivan, and judging by the crowds and instagram hype it’s a hit with those looking for raw, organic and gluten free foods. Health reigns here in the most delicious way.
May Street Larder has recently opened to much fanfare and if my Instagram feed is anything to go by swimmer turned hospitality entrepreneur Eamon Sullivan has a third hit on his hands. And a brightly hued, and health centric one at that.
Sullivan opened May Street Larder in partnership with Head Chef Scott Bridger, and together they’re creating a place that holds a strong focus on downright delicious food, as well as health conscious options designed especially for those with diet intolerances. Raw foods, organic foods and gluten free and Paleo options are all on the menu.
The Larder itself used to be a Red Rooster, which may account for some of the acoustic problems in the cafe. Decked out in a minimalist style the decor is suitably ‘hip’ with some cool features like a pressed tin skirting surrounding the edge of the walls.
The Breakfast menu is impressive. It includes House Smoked Salmon served with cornbread, scrambled eggs and spinach as well as breakfast staples such as eggs, bircher muesli, a healthy cook-up and Belgian Waffles. Impressively the breakfast menu also offers something a little different including Mexi-Can a mexican inspired breakfast with MSL beans as well as Zucchini, lupin and lemon fritters made with woodfired tomatoes. The Larder also offers a take away menu.
The morning I visited it was packed, offering seasonal food and local produce as well as food that caters for those with food intolerances appears to have hit the mark with locals.
House-made Soda, Cold-pressed Soda and Smoothies in a variety of tantalising flavours are also available. Well worth a look, especially for those who like that home made touch!May Street Larder is open for breakfast from 7am -11am and Lunch from 12pm – 4pm. You’ll find it on the corner of May and Canning Highway, East Fremantle, Perth.
