To say the guys behind Mary Street Bakery have been busy lately is an understatement. After taking Mount Lawley, West Leederville and the CBD by storm with their infamous doughnuts, epic coffee and drool-worthy breakfasts, the boys opened their new bar Tiny's last week, but as the saying goes, there is no rest for the wickedly good doughnut creators.
Just nine days after the opening of Tiny's, Michael Forde and Paul Aron will open Offshoot Coffee at Hibernian Place and to celebrate, they'll be offering free coffee all day on Wednesday 9 May, and free coffee with every food purchase on Friday 11 May—so you know where to organise Friday lunch.
If you're wondering why this won't just be another Mary Street Bakery, you wouldn't be the only one. Offshoot Coffee will be distinctly different from the Mary Street Bakeries around Perth in that it's a specialty coffee roaster and coffee shop that will be dishing out grab-and-go style food, rather than a cafe where you can sit and while away the morning. If you like to sit and enjoy your coffee in peace, fret not—there will be some outdoor seating at Offshoot Coffee, or you can find a place to perch around Hibernian Place.
You'll still be able to get those glorious doughnuts and the other baked goods you know and love, as well as granola, bircher and chia pudding for breakfast, or salad bowls, sangas, sausage rolls, pies and quiches for lunch.
If you're a bit of a coffee nerd, you'll be excited to hear the guys have imported a Loring S15 Falcon roaster from America and you'll be able to watch this bad boy in action when you stop by to grab your cup of joe.
Of course, they'll be brewing the much loved Mary Street Bakery house blend, but they'll also be roasting some more progressive roasts for those of you want to experiment a little. If you're not too sure about the different blends, they'll be doing free weekly tasting sessions, so you'll be a coffee snob in no time, plus there will be courses in espresso making, latte art and more for the dedicated coffee lovers and wannabe baristas out there.
