Peter’s Bar and Cafe.
Translation: Counter in a food hall in Morley that sells alcohol, makes coffee (when the machine works) and sells Michael’s Patisserie bought cake.
And thanks to the ‘were open at 9am’ (but not really), this is totally how I spent my Saturday.
This was a place we visited using a voucher from Groupon. All I can say is, some places you just have to take it for what it is (which, errr, we’re still not sure what ‘it’ is).
As we drove down the street looking for it, we thought, maybe it’s in the pretty markets… nope. Maybe it’s in Galleria… nope.
And then we came across it.
It’s one of those places you just don’t know how to respond to. So in the end we opted to be amused.
Imagine even more my amusement to see the Google maps date stamp of November 2009. It’s been running for at least 2 years. They must be doing something right! (right?!)
The style reminded me of half a gas station counter, and half being in a small American food court (but without the awesomely drippy cheesy American pizza). Inside the same foodhall is Indian, Japanese, Chinese, and Italian, with family photos and a maneki-neko (waving cat) on display. Yes in the Italian section, not the Japanese. Being the only place to buy a drink, this is where Peter’s does well.
For the record, it doesn’t open at 9am, so take your time getting there. It’s a good thing we decided to sleep in that morning as we found it opens at 11:30am. By 1pm, the coffee machine still wasn’t running.
Fortunately the lady offered us a cold drink in its place (bring on the milkshakes!), so we scoffed our cakes (kudos to Michael’s Patisserie), and scuttled back to our western suburbs as fast as we could.
a day’s old cake…
