Tiger,Tiger Coffee Bar

2009 March 2

I’d heard rumblings from the Twitterverse of the cafe/bar Tiger, Tiger during Edge of the Web held in Perth. So it was our first stop on arrival in the CBD. By day 4 of our trip, as I have previously mentioned, we were desperate for decent coffee. Lucky for us, Tiger, Tiger was a mere hop, skip and a jump away. In addition it also supplied free wireless! So on our first visit (a scorcher of a 42° degree day) we headed into it’s cool surrounds to get some coffee, find out what was going on over East via the interwebz and try some of their goodies. I must make honourable mention of the wonderful waitress who wrapped a bunch of ice in a tea towel to place around our hot necks…

For breakfast one morning I had their Spanish eggs, a delicious combo of baked eggs, tomato and capsicum scoop-uppable with lovely crusty bread, and Da Boyfriend had his usual toast. Here you order slices of toast individually. As I wasn’t sure of the size I ordered three pieces for him. A little too much, even for him!

On another occasion we again went to steal their wireless and have a beer.. they have a lovely little nibbles menu for the evening:nibblesmenudrinksmenu

So I ordered the Pipsqueak cider, now a firm favourite, and decide to try the white bean puree with olives, orange and mint..(we were going out to dinner

later on)..

The only shortcoming of this lovely little morsel was that it didn’t come with bread or something to eat it with…and they charged us almost $4.00 for two cut pieces of baguette! So not cool, and an awkward mis-step in an otherwise awesome little spot.

    We found their service to be quite variable – sometimes nice, other times cranky. But the food and coffee were good – L still raves about the eggs benedict and I had a surprisingly good muesli (not something I’d normally even mention).

    I think the venue’s a big part of Tiger Tiger’s success – it really is a nice spot to hang out.

    I had something like the Spanish eggs in Turkey. It was called menemen and it was really nice.

    I’ll have to check it out before I leave Perth in a few weeks. If you get down to Fremantle check out Moore & Moore (linked above). Looks like it’s got a similar vibe

    hahaha – DOH! I forgot you’ve already commented saying you wish you’d know about it while you were here.

    Sorry! *blush* :]

    This place looks great, a hole in the wall place by the looks of it ? Free wireless, I always get excited by that!

    Are those eggs served in the pan it was cooked in ? Either way, I have a fetish for dishes done like that. They ‘taste better’.

    @Howard Yep those eggs were baked in the dish…they were delish! Oh look, I rhymed!
