There's not a lot you can do on a wintery Sunday morning in Perth (too cold for the beach and too wet for a bike ride) except suss out good breakfast spots. Good friends whose taste buds I trust had told us about this place and we were keen to try it. First up, the coffee is very good. Perth is lucky to have many nice coffee outlets and this would rank among the top. It was nice to see a wide selection of items for breakfast catering for the light eater right through to the big breakfast fan. We opted for a ham and cheese croissant and an assiette breakfast. We've had many ham and cheese croissants and this would rank as the best. It may have to do with the cheese which had a wonderfully creamy texture. The breakfast plate had the usual sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, tomato and toast. JPS is well known for its bread and pastries and it's boast is that its bread is made fresh daily unlike commercial and supermarket bakeries that produce breads that need a reasonable shelf life. Rockpool, gets its bread from JPS. The toast was indeed different to many provided in eateries elsewhere. But the bonus was the macaroons. Many cafes and bakeries offer macaroons (even McDonald's McCafe's have them and no I haven't tried them; Macca's confectioneries tend to be very sweet. But I should give it a go in the name of fairness) but JPS macaroons are undoubtedly the best I've come across so far. There is a wide range of flavours and all are good but my favourites are the pistachio, caramel and rose water. Prices are about par for similar restaurants but the food here, particularly the bread, is excellent. And don't forget the coffee.
