Atomic Espresso, South Perth

I am often in the South Perth area and for some reason never think of Atomic Espresso for a bite to eat. However, recently a good friend posted a stunning breakfast photo on Instagram from Atomic, which firmly planted the idea in my mind. I am a very visual eater and love to look up photos of menu items prior to dining out or I secretly sometimes walk around restaurants/cafes to see what the dishes on offer look like (haha…sly). So after a lovely morning with Speed-eater-bf which involved the beach, a coffee and lie at the park, we stopped in at Atomic for lunch. It was quite busy when we arrived (around one-ish) however we easily found a table; ample space at this cafe including both inside and outside seating options.

I was pleased to see that their breakfast menu was on offer, giving the option of another breakfast or lunch. I like it when cafes have both options available. I had a hard time deciding on what to order. I had heard word that eats-as-often-as-most-take-air brother had recently frequented this establishment and had enjoyed the Thai Beef Salad..however after much internal debate decided on the Roast Vegie Bruschetta ($15.50; roast pumpkin, roast capsicum, grilled eggplant, grilled zucchini, grilled asparagus, Danish feta, basil infused EV olive oil, cracked pepper, & sea salt on ciabatta toast). I opted to remove the Danish feta and add avocado and a poached egg. I can’t say I was wowed by this dish, it was just ok. There was nothing wrong with it, however it just didn’t excite. I did find they were quite generous with the basil infused EV olive oil, a little too liberally handed for my personal tastes. They were also very generous with the avocado, which again was too much.

Speed-eater-bf ordered the Club Sandwich ($17.50). This came with shaved turkey, free range bacon, cos, tomato, aoili and wholemeal sourdough bread with a side of French fries. I was a little surprised the turkey was of the shaved variety, I did expect it to be a turkey breast. Speed-eater however seemed pleased with his meal.

Atomic Espresso was a solid cafe for lunch with generous portion sizes. I’d like to come back and try their Bircher Muesli…having seen some beautiful photos of it..haha.

    Hey – shame it wasn’t up to par! Fran and I go here a lot – the pumpkin salad is great! Had bircher muesli last week – good, but bircher is only alright in my opinion anyway! 🙂
