Quiet, Quaint, Perfection.
Cuisine: Coffee, Sandwiches/Subs, Bakery
Francois is my favourite secret find. Located in a car park off Newcastle Street in Leederville this quaint little café is usually quite quiet, and therefore a favourite of mine for 2 person business meetings. I would not recommend it for large groups, but it really is perfect for smaller catch ups with friends.
Service: I have always been immediately greeted and served by the loveliest staff. Coffee and food is served quickly and the staff are more than happy to help you with any catering requests and queries.
Food: The coffee is always delicious, and the fridge is always full of fresh quiches, gourmet rolls as well as delicious cakes, delectable chocolates and scrumptious pastries. I have enjoyed their gourmet rolls for lunch and work catering numerous times. The cakes are always a crowd pleaser at birthdays, overflowing with flavour and the tarts overflowing with delicious fresh fruits and the perfect shortcrust pastry. As for the pastries, I would go as far as saying that Francois Mille-feuille (vanilla slice) is the best in Perth. The pastry is crisp and flaky, the custard has a creamy smooth texture and a balance of vanilla taste and the fondant is smooth and shiny. True perfection.
Recommendation: Once you’ve tried Francois pastries, macaroons and cakes you will be unable to resist.
