In a nondescript office building in West Perth, not far from the City West train station, you’ll find a humble, green-tiled haven with a friendly atmosphere, good coffee and great sandwiches.
The Molo menu reads like a list of Perth’s best artisan makers. Toasties are made with hand-sliced meats and cheeses from The Grocer, on bread from Big Loaf Bakery. Specialty coffee beans are from Five Senses and cold brew from Modus. Trays of cinnamon scrolls also from Big Loaf line the countertops alongside New York-style chunky cookies from Dough Parlour In warmer months there’s even poke bowls made with Kailis salmon sashimi, the same sashimi the Molo team uses in its house gin-cured salmon bagel.
The toastie menu is a little slicker than at your average cafe. Scamorza cheese and mortadella might be paired with a sharp mango and lime chutney. Pickles, capers and dill might dress up a classic tuna melt. Double cheese and whipped Vegemite butter on thick slabs of white bread make for a luxe take on a lunchbox staple.
Molo’s sage green, white and black colour scheme complements the tree-lined surrounds. With Harold Boas Gardens on one side and Totterdell Park on the other, Molo is perfect for a mid-week, mid-city picnic.
