Serving up arguably some of the best corn fritters around Perth, there’s not much The Little Resident can do wrong.
The restaurant and bar in Nedlands boasts a welcoming vibe with its white-on-white interior and arched windows. But for the best seat in the house it’s recommended you head out the back to their beer garden, where the sunlight creeps through the umbrellas and hits your back, giving you your daily dose of Vitamin D.
With former head chef at Jamie’s Italian, Grant Greyling in charge, you can expect to find only good things in the menu. Normally I wouldn’t pass up the chance to spoon into an ice-cold acai bowl with seasonal fruit and house made granola, however, the corn, zucchini and sweet potato fritters seemed like a must-try. These crispy fritters were served up with a side of spinach, smashed avocado and peperonata – sweet bell peppers with olive oil, onion and tomato. For a vegan and gluten free dish, they set the bar pretty high.
After much debate on whether or not to dabble in a breakfast dessert, a serve of the Insta-famous Red Velvet Waffles were ordered. These waffles were dressed up all pretty with a brownie gravel, marscapone, fresh berries and maple syrup – talk about heart attack material!! Not only were they the perfect waffle consistency, fluffy and moorish, but that brownie gravel was next level good.
The coffee here deserves a special mention. The specialty grade coffee beans are supplied from Perth local roasters, Backyard Coffee, and the barista is nothing short of passionate when it comes to serving up her finest brew. But if you’re not a caffeine addict, you have got to try their hot chocolate. The cocoa is supplied by Ballarat’s Grounded Pleasures, so you can expect nothing but the best.
Brunch here is available until 11:30am, and I highly recommend you get yourself there ASAP.
