The Coin Laundry….a great recipe

The Coin Laundry by the Armadale Railway station (originally actually a Coin Laundry) is a great addition to the growing number of quite unique breakfast and lunch venues in this part of the world.  Its stripped concrete floors, its linen tea towel clad roof insulation and brick back wall belies the sophistication of this corner cafe with its beautifully restored Edwardian facade.

Service is full of smiles and brisk and there is something very authentic about the place. Coffee is from Allpress’s sustainable beans, croissants from Noisette, cheese from Calender Cheese Company and all other produce sourced  from local producers.  Preserves include Pear and Ginger and Strawberry and Aniseed. Breakfasts include black olive bruschetta with ricotta, smashed avocado and roasted romas, breakfast ‘trifle’ of granola, yoghurt and fruit as well as some great Moroccan inspired options. Lunches includes 5-6 salad options light refreshing with the accent on the fresh produce.

Prices are certainly not at the heady levels of some cafes around the Armadale area. And if you want to avoid the heavily made up, coiffured haired school mums that frequents Rouge on Beatty Avenue, try the Coin Laundry.
