Paper Avenue is a new cafe that has recently opened on the corner of Boas Avenue and Davidson Terrace in Joondalup. It is very clean and modern in style, and the staff are passionate about providing really great food and coffee.
It is an ideal brunch/lunch spot, all food is homemade with love and care.
The menu includes:
Banana bread with lemon zest and a raspberry and star anise compote – absolutely delicious:
Buttermilk pancakes with raspberries, jam and lemon curd. Very nice although the jam made them taste really sweet and I would have liked some yoghurt or marscapone to even out the intense sweetness of the jam:
Strawberry smoothie – again very nice, pretty and lovingly made, but can be a little variable – the most recent version had too much yoghurt and not enough strawberry:
Beef brisket brioche – absolutely overflowing with brisket, with a little special sauce (thousand island style) and apple and mint slaw, tastes lovely and is very filling:
Brisket Benedict – a very nice twist on eggs benny with hunks of bread and plentiful brisket, guacamole and perfectly cooked eggs all coated with hollandaise:
John, Erika and Justin have created a really stylish cafe here. All food is created with perfection in mind, and they are very friendly owners, always keen to give customers little extras to try – “Here’s some chutney that chef made fresh this morning” is a typical example.
The coffee is great, sourced from Locale in Melbourne, it’s clear that they are prepared to go the extra mile to serve the best. With seating inside and outside, I can see Paper Avenue being very busy through summer and beyond – it’s just what Joondalup CBD needed.
