One of the best things about Perth is the ever growing and expanding food scene. There’s been numerous new eateries popping about everywhere in our humble little city that’s making it hard to choose where to go and not to mention producing an awful dent in my wallet. Tiisch, a new café right in the city is one of those places.
Located on the corner of Hay Street and Milligan Street, Tiisch is an Instagrammers dream. The café’s outfit is on point, with high ornate ceilings and twisting green potted plants that contrasts nicely against all the neutral colours. Closely working together with other local businesses like Little Leaf Co for plants, Miko Matcha for ceremonial grade matcha, Pressed Earth for cold press juices and Lisa Schreurs-Stone who’s affiliated with other great Perth eateries like Cantina 663, Mrs S and Must, Tiisch mixes elements of Perth’s greatest to create something out of the ordinary.
I was expecting an all-day menu as it seems pretty much the norm these days, however there was two separate menus at Tiisch, one for breakfast 7am-11am and one for lunch 11am-3pm that had a prominent difference and offered modern bistro style meals. For breakfast, patrons are able to choose from the likes of matcha pancakes ($16), truffle egg ($19) and a cured salmon and cumber carpaccio dish ($19). The lunch menu sees more of a heavier change with dishes like orecchiette pasta with local mushrooms ($19), crispy seared barramundi ($23) and Wolfgang’s chicken ($19).
I highly recommend getting the orecchiette pasta, a soy matcha latte and a matcha cookie sandwich to finish. In terms of drinks, Tiisch serves up Dukes Coffee, High Mountain Tea, and Miko Matcha amongst other drinks that are sourced from local producers in Perth. The waiters working there were also all so lovely, constantly smiling, attentive to our needs and emitted a sense of warmth.
Tiisch is located at Corner Hay Milligan Street, Perth 6000 and is open weekdays from 7am to 4pm.
