What once was washing machines churning out suds and bright whites on a sunny corner opposite the Armadale train station, is now a busy little establishment, still taking your spare gold coins, but for coffee rather than 15 minutes in the dryer.
The white and green space with huge windows, open brickwork details and concrete floors is airy, bright and as fresh as the name suggests.
Breakfasts are the drawcard - think caramelised French toast soldiers with maple and bacon, or house-cured ocean trout on potato rosti.
If there is a downside to Coin Laundry Cafe it's the 30 minute wait that you may be forced to endure, depending upon the time of your arrival on the weekend – but the meal certainly compensates for any inconvenience. It beats doing the washing.
