What’s goin’ on banana turon? As it’s coming up to that pivotal one day in September I may have been hanging out the City of Boroondara to dedicate the next few posts to my fave team #GoHawks
Celebrating it’s first birthday recently, the cafe was named after a Kewellian gentlemen who still lives in the area. Owner Wesley is more than happy to retell whimsical tales of Percy the WWII pilot that flew to exotic locations such as Brazil and Columbia where their coffee beans are coincidentally from…
Hello yellow #alilrayofsunshine
As a local boy himself, Wesley is a massive fan of supporting the community. Their bread is baked fresh daily from Abbotsford Convent Bakery and the nearby coffee roaster brings their South American sourced green beans straight to the cafe.
How adorable is the antique model fighter plane that is an actual replica of Percy’s war machine #gutentag
The cafe’s tenancy is a homely heritage building that is blessed with beautiful original features like textured ceilings, exposed brickwork and stained glass windows.
Check out these locally crafted wooden tables by David Davenport…
Centrally located around the corner from High Street, the cafe started opening on Saturdays four months ago to cater for their loyal
groupies fans who can’t wait until Monday for a bit of Percy love.
Faster than a speeding bullet… More powerful than a locomotive. Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound…
Who doesn’t heart a fireplace?
Some people call their exposed brickwork a feature, Wesley prefers to call it a striptease…
You can leave your hat on!
Their outdoor courtyard is soo pretty even when it’s pouring, just imagine how it would be when the old man isn’t snoring #summerlove
Probably the best coffee in Kew (big call I know), master barista Wesley also produces his own full bodied specialty small-batch roasted coffee concoctions with weekly single origins available for purchase *aah*
The cafe’s all day brekky menu is changed seasonally by their chef with the concept of simple and tasty goodness. Many have traveled all over the land (or at least over the Yarra!) for the timeless thyme infused mushrooms on toast, with smashed avocado, lime dressing, dukkah, creamy goats cheese & a poached egg…
Double choc chip cookie – double the pleasure, double the fun #onthedouble
A little birdie has told me to come back soon to check out their upcoming mural and other decorative projects. I can’t reveal all but if you have any old board passes that you would like to give a new home to, make sure you drop them off at Percy’s departure lounge ;)
