I spent a lot of time in the Fresh Provisions car park, which isn’t as tricky as it seems.
Lots of ready meals were purchased at Freshies on Sundays when I was too lazy to cook, or it was the starting point in order to eat and drink after lunch in delicious offerings on Beaufort Street.
It’s a solid mass of concrete – you always get a seat, and the first hour is free.
However, the prospect of eating my breakfast overlooking the parking lot was not necessarily the most appealing, no matter how well it served me.
Soho Lane is located inside Alexander’s restored and previously dim buildings, which are unrecognizable with its fresh colors, artwork and vibrant architectural additions.
Saturday mornings around buildings make noise, people and dogs grab morning coffee or food on weekends.
This atmosphere permeates Soho Lane itself: almost every table is filled, but you can still hear the conversation with the person next door.
Inside the interiors are soft and feminine, with pink and terrace and light wood trim, high ceilings and lots of natural light. Never thought about his proximity to the parking lot.
Like its bright interior, the dishes we ate and what we saw at other tables were bright and joyful food that made you feel good.
Falafel with herbs and sesame seeds, taboulou, mixed summer pickles, roasted lentils, green tahini sauce ($ 18) with poached egg ($ 4) was a colorful mass of goodness.
With each bite there was a new texture and aroma. Under the cabbage hid marinated radish and cauliflower, which were delicious with warm falafel and cream sauce.
Similarly, a relic of tomato, strachetella, basil on kvass ($ 20) also with poached egg ($ 4) was a good dish because how often can you eat cheese for breakfast?
He was generously strangled by lost, ripe tomatoes and their best friend basil. This is a popular combination of flavors for a reason.
The service was friendly and efficient, and the coffee – they use Grain Micrology working in Osborne Park – had a good temperature and strength to drink right away.
Fresh Provisions parking has gotten a lot better.
Address: Alexander, Buildings, 13/649 Beaufort St, Mt Lawley
Verdict: Bright and noisy cafe with fun and hearty food. The service is efficient and friendly, and the menu is a varied combination of healthy, filling and sweet.
