Home' Scoop : Scoop 50 Summer 2009 Contents Helen Burke (of Beaches in Cottesloe fame) and
her partner Margot Grace (she used to have the
Ord Street Café) opened Feast in August on the
site of the old Nude Nosh in Nedlands.
Pop in for breakfast and treat yourself to the
very different Mexican eggs with tomato, avocado
and coriander salsa. The muesli, their own mix
with ingredients bought from the fabulous
produce store next door (see breakout), is served
with roasted rhubarb, poached pears and Greek
yoghurt. I dropped in for lunch on a lazy Tuesday
and the place had a lovely, busy vibe to it without
feeling crowded. Make your selection from the
food on display, pay at the counter and settle in.
Service is friendly and the food, most impor-
tantly, is really good. The Thai beef salad was
packed full of flavour, the ingredients fresh, the
noodles cooked just right.
With this dish, it all comes down to the quality
of the beef and getting the right balance with the
sauce. It was spot on. The spinach, pumpkin and
feta salad oozed freshness and at $8 for a small
serve or $12 for the large, salads are value.
The filo pies are hard to resist. Try the chicken,
tomato, leek and artichoke -- flaky, buttery and
tasty -- it melted it the mouth. It's a generous
serving but it would have been nice to have a few
greens on the side, for presentation if nothing else.
Corn and zucchini fritters were a little heavy
on the turmeric, which left an odd aftertaste, but
they were moist and served with a wonderful little
yoghurt and lime dressing. There are big, crusty
baguettes with various fillings and a good selec-
tion of cakes and tarts. Everything is made on the
premises and gluten-free options are available.
Fresh juices, coffees, shakes and a very impres-
sive selection of teas round up a well-thought
out menu. According to my astute young dining
companion, the hot chocolate was excellent!
Catering for small and large gatherings is
available and is a great option for your next lunch.
Open 9am - 5pm Monday to Saturday.

A FINE FEAST

with impressive results.

There are huge tins full of cereals, pulses,
grains and flours and tub after tub of dried fruit

muesli, buy your preserves, olives, tinned veg-

The kids will love this place and it's a great
way to get them interested in different foods as
they walk around, helping you make your selec-

winner -- I couldn't go past the milk bottles.
