The Old Laundry is the newest edition to the buzzing Angove St strip in north Perth. The strip itself has an atmosphere that is reminiscent of Beaufort St when the focus was coffee rather than bars, and The Old Laundry fits in perfectly.
The breakfast menu is simple but ticks all the boxes. The addition of things such as vegetarian quesadillas with smoked cheese or chicken sausages being added to the baked eggs makes the menu a little different, but they’ve included your staples too, making the menu suitable for foodies and families alike.
They’ve written a drinks menu that’s pretty fantastic. You can walk in and order any classic cocktail or explore their cocktail list (their martini’s are fantastic as are their negorini’s). All of the staff really love what they do and you can see that in how they work. A group of us had drinks there on Sunday and they vibe was awesome. There was a good mix of people eating and drinking and it felt very cohesive. The room was filled with conversation and it was a really great place to be.
Having started to explore their wines more, I’ve found a couple of real gems. Their Chardonnay is pretty legendary and I don’t think there’s a red that I wouldn’t want to drink. They’ve got two ciders available and a big stack of beers plus all of their spirits which means they can cater to all.
