Early Breakfast at DuoTone, East Perth
One of the best joys in life is to be able to go to a breakfast place at a very early time in the morning (ie. 6AM), when people are still asleep in their bed and struggling to get up. Why is that you asked? It’s because you can see what’s happening behind the scenes in the kitchen. From the preparation of setting down heaps of green tea croissants to preparing the first batch of very fresh bagels, it felt like we had the place all to ourselves!
I heard a lot of good things about DuoTone but they only opened during the weekday. DuoTone was very easily located, just right across the Perth Mint and I was so happy that I managed to go there on one very early Friday morning (finally!).
I bought the delicious breakfast bagel, filled with the usual breakfast ingredients such as egg and bacon. The bagel was easy to eat and very filling. Alvin offered me a bite of his very fresh green tea croissant and the flaky pastry was just amazing!
That morning we also tried the buttery turmeric latte which tasted very turmeric-y when we got to the bottom part of it. I wasn't too keen on it although turmeric lovers will rejoice at the taste of the latte.
As the morning went on we saw a flow of customers who ordered some take-away breakfast and coffee. It was a good morning and probably the last coffee catch up that we could have with Alvin before he move away to Sydney :-).
