This is a bit of a Leederville landmark, both from its longevity, and the eye catching hanging lanterns and the mix matched furnishings – as well as, more particularly, the appealing and impressive cake display which draws customers in to this bustling café coffee shop in the heart of the Leederville strip.
The creamy and nutty coffee is served at the right temperature – none of the overly hot burned milk flavours here – and the hot chocolate also hit the spot – nicely chocolatey and creamy.
A couple of cakes to accompany the drinks went down well – firstly, gingerbread cheesecake – the crumbly ginger bread base supporting creamy moreish filling juiced up with lots of gingery flavours.
The pear crumble was as it should be crumbly but still moist and full of ripe pear pieces – yep just right for a morning tea.
Greens and Co is always worth a visit if you can snag a seat (although you would think an occasional clean-up of the couches is in order!), while no EFTPOS availability and the insistence on cash is a bit of a bugbear in this day and age, but that is a small inconvenience for a chance to have a coffee and cake at this hipster fixture. Worth dropping by when you are out and about in the inner western suburbs.
