La Veen in Perth Menu Review JK1246
I brought a stubborn bug with me to Perth, Australia - I was infected with the hipster cafe hopping bug and took it everywhere I went. My good friend Jo-Hann who lives in Perth tells me that I have to check out La Veen, one of his favourite coffee places.
We couldn't meet up as Jo-Hann was stuck in campus, so he guided me on watsapp to La Veen on King Street. La Veen is right at the northern end of King Street at the intersection with Wellington Street. I found La Veen easily thanks to Jo-Hann and to the City of Perth for providing free working wifi in the city centre.
I passed many interesting sights as I worked my way leisurely around downtown Perth in beautiful weather on the last day of Winter.
There were many interesting, quaint old shops - like this T. Sharp & Co., writing instruments and fine gifts on Hay Street.
Perth's heritage is reflected in it's new developments.
Hey...., this lane off Hay Street looks interesting.
I can be forgiven for thinking that I just stepped into London as this is Perth's London Court Arcade.
Stepping into La Veen, it was indeed a hip space with all the right cool vibes and people. Still, it was casual and welcoming, so anyone can feel comfortable here. Located inside a heritage building, the interior was a little tight. Plenty of red bricks and wood, I love the rustic homely feel of this place.
The coffee is freshly pressed on order using the much sought after elite handcrafted Synesso Hydra espresso machine.
As it was about time to get on the bus to the airport, I got myself a take away flat white.
Medium body Brazilian, Costa Rican, Ethiopian blend. Deep yet gentle bitter sweetness with nice Arabica aroma. I enjoyed sipping this hot coffee as I roamed the streets of downtown Perth.
Besides good coffee, La Veen serves a wide range of delicious looking brekky and brunch dishes. Obviously, this post is incomplete. I definitely need to come back to La Veen for a full experience at this cafe.
Back on the streets of Perth, peeking curiously down alleyways. I don't know, perhaps I was an alley cat in a past life ;-p
