Brunch @ Cantina 663, Mount Lawley

I have found out that this place is very very popular amongst the food bloggers in Perth.
Seems like most of them have been there for breakfast or lunch! As the usual curious me, dragged Joe along with me to try out this fantastic place.

The look of it already impressed me. The huge wine rack inside the cafe impressed Joe.
The food? Impressed both of us.

Love the medicine looking water bottle.

The menu wasn't huge (lunch), but I think it's enough to give me a hard time to choose what to have because everything sounds very good! At first, I wanted to try the gnocchi, then I changed my mine to Risotto, then I change my mind again to Beef Cheek.

Joe had the Steak Sandwich.
Honestly, this is the best steak sandwich I have ever tasted.
I love it because it's easy to eat, the steak was cooked perfectly, and the flavour just blend nicely.
I never order steak sandwich for myself before because it is too clumsy and troublesome to eat. Most of the time, the bread was too thick that you have to separate it and spread everything out to eat it. But this one just eat it as it is! Clean and YUM! It was quite a light meal too.

My Beef Cheek was delicious! Tender meat, crunchy veges and thick and creamy gravy at the bottom.

It's so yum, I nearly licked the plate. Nah.. just joking. But the yum part is true.
To me, it's more like a dinner meal than lunch because it was quite heavy.

I will go back there to try the breakfast menu and dinner if I get the chance. :)

After our brunch, walking along Beaufort Street, walk passed the Lawley's bakery shop and our eyes got glued to the pastry that they are selling. Without any hesitation, we both walked in and choose something nice for ourselves.

I got the Lemon Tart, which was lovely. Love the acidity of the lemon curd and the sweetness of the pastry! It made me hungry again!

The Chocolate Cheesecake was nice too! It's light and creamy.
Most importantly, it tasted fresh. Joe really loved it!

We have tried and seen some really gross ones before in the cafe or even in the McCafe. It looks plastic and taste really unpleasant.

We were really happy with our meals and definitely have to try more restaurants on Beaufort Street! It's never ending!

The food at Cantina always looks so good. I can't believe I STILL haven't tried their smoked salmon for breakfast. Also, I like a manageable sized menu.. I find it hard enough to make up my mind at the best of times.
