As the children’s nursery rhyme goes “Jack and Jill went up the hill” and up in the lovely Perth Hills is where you’ll find this delicious café, on the main street in Kalamunda.
Sunday mornings are busy in Kalamunda, with the weekly Farmers Market and lots of good quality cafes. One of our favourite local eateries for a bite to eat is Jack and Jill. The popular café is brimming with people enjoying their excellent food. It’s a great spot, where we like to sit in a cosy booth and enjoy a tasty brunch.
We always have a great coffee at Jack and Jill. A regular flat white will set you back $4.
They make a good cuppa too, offering many different tea blends. In summer, we also enjoy their refreshing iced teas.
As my daughter says, their fresh bakes are “to die for” and many of them are gluten-free too. We’ve tried a few and our favourite has been the strawberry, almond and yoghurt friands.
Jack and Jill’s brunch menu has all the trendy favourites… baked eggs, French toast, smashed avo and more. There’s also fresh gourmet sandwiches in the cabinet.
The menu changes often, in the past my husband’s favourite has been the pulled pork eggs benedict on toast, $20. The pork is moist and the dish comes with poached eggs smothered in creamy Hollandaise sauce and finished with a pork crackle crumb.
I really loved the very tasty “Green eggs”, which sounds like something out of a Dr Seuss book! Two sunny side up fried eggs are served on toast, with hummus, a fresh zucchini and herb salad, and green olive and pistachio pesto, $16.50.
We always find the waitstaff at Jack and Jill helpful and friendly. They’re also pretty patient, as I can never make my mind up as to which cakes to pick from the counter display!
All In All
The busy cafe can get a little noisy at peak times, since it’s so open plan, but it’s well worth it for the great food. My husband just has to turn his hearing aids down a bit!! Jack and Jill is a brilliant reason to head up the hill to the charming town of Kalamunda for a bite to eat, and a wander around the shops, as well as the farmers markets and there’s the interesting Zig Zag Galleries and Kalamunda History Village too.
