Gusto Food

With yesterday filled to the brim with students, gigs and way, way too much rain for a Perth spring, I knew today needed to be a day of good food and great company.

My good friend Claire has been going on about Gusto Food, in South Perth, for a long time now.  It is her "go to" breakfast spot. So, we thought it was about time to co-ordinated the dairies and scheduled ourselves a lazy Sunday brunch.

Gusto Food is a cute boutique cafe located on Angove Street in South Perth serving its own array of gourmet food. Nattering guests (mostly locals) pile out the door waiting for tables as the cafe buzzes with happy customers filling up on pulled pork sandwiches (yep - pulled pork for breakfast!),  homemade crumpets, donuts and perfectly cooked eggs. 

Claire went for her usual - the pulled pork sandwich.

While I went for goats cheese scrambled eggs with grilled tomato, basil and quinoa crunch on ciabatta toast.

With a large selection of house-baked goods, as well as gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options available, this is a great little spot for everyone.

If you are in the area, I highly recommend Gusto's for guaranteed good food and coffee. It is open for breakfast and lunch Tuesday to Sunday. The menu changes regularly and its breakfast menu is different each day of the weekend making it hard to resist returning simply to sample all the goodies on offer! 

My afternoon was spent in the beautiful Perth Town Hall celebrating the launch of the West Australian Camerata. My string quartet, Mill Point Quartet, was invited to be an integral part of this new chamber orchestra and we are incredibly excited to see it successfully launch onto the Perth music scene*.

Meet Balthazar!
After an early dinner at el Publico (unfortunately I forgot my camera meaning I will have to take on the incredibly difficult task of going back to review it properly for you all... what a shame!) I have returned home to spend the evening with my viola, a pot of tea and the fish to bid the weekend goodbye and prepare for the week ahead. 

What did you get up to this weekend? 

*I will soon be updating my blog with information on all the projects I am currently partaking in here in WA. I am sure you are just as thrilled as I am to see so many incredible cultural events occurring in this city!
