When it comes to sought-after breakfast and brunch options, the humble crumpet always seems to pop up as a favourite. You’re probably familiar with the supermarket variety—generally slathered with generous amounts of butter and vegemite—but we’ve got something a little more gourmet in mind.
Here’s where you can find Perth’s best crumpets.
Hampton & Maley
Ditching sweet in favour of savoury, the team at Hampton & Maley have effortlessly elevated the crumpet from stock-standard to sky-high. We’re currently living for their distinctive combination of house-made crumpets with fried chicken wings, pickled zucchini and fermented chilli mayo.
When it comes to the crumpet hall of fame, Gusto Food has to be up there with the best of them. Their dish of house-made crumpets with pear, berries, peanut gravel and yoghurt has placed them firmly on the map as one of Perth’s favourite breakfast destinations.
If you’re chasing a little decadence with your breakfast or brunch, you just can’t beat the fluffy homemade crumpets from Henry Little. We love the indulgent side of life, and the prosciutto, brie, truffle oil and smoked sea salt accompaniments really take you there.
With not one but two crumpet options, Aliment has made our brunch decisions just that much harder. Be sure to come hungry as both are quite hearty, with the first option featuring fried chicken, maple bacon and a fried egg, and the second with avocado, bacon, chipotle creamed corn and a fried egg.
