The delightful Carmel Tea Rooms, is found just next to Myattsfield Vineyard in the Bickley Valley – a boutique wine region in the Perth Hills (just behind Kalamunda). We walked up the grape laden ramp, from the gravel car park and were greeted by friendly staff.
They gave us the choice of sitting out on the deck or inside the café. There’s plenty of tables inside, as well as beautiful stained glass windows, a wood fire (which will be lovely in winter) and even an old stove, converted to a sink that was just like one my mother used to have!
The covered deck has lovely views over paddocks and vineyards.
We enjoyed a morning cuppa at Carmel Tea Rooms. Their coffee is a smooth Crema roast, while there are quality loose-leaf teas, milkshakes and iced teas available too. The small brunch menu caters for gluten intolerances, as well as vegetarian and vegan diets. If you’d like a tipple, you’re in luck – Carmel Tea Rooms is also home to the Cosham Winery cellar door – where tastings are available.
My daughter enjoyed the avocado on toast, with two free-range poached eggs, purslane greens (an edible succulent), tahini dressing and a sprinkle of dukka.
I absolutely loved the salmon scramble. Silky scrambled eggs are served on sourdough bread, spread with a tasty lemon herbed cream cheese, wilted seasonal leaves and fresh smoked salmon.
If you enjoy a big brekkie, the full vineyard will be sure to fill you up. There’s bacon, chipolatas, two eggs (cooked how you like), grilled roma tomatoes, mushrooms, tomato jam and two slices of sourdough toast with butter on the side.
The cakes in the cabinet were so tempting, we took a few takeaway cakes home. The Key Lime pie was scrumptious. All cakes and slices are baked in house, it’s well worth stopping by for a coffee and cake, as well as brunch.
You’ll be sure to get a warm Perth Hills welcome at the Carmel Tea Rooms. So be sure to pop in and enjoy this lovely little spot.
