Get your hands on some of the best toasties in Perth.
Ah, the humble toastie (or jaffle, whatever you want to call them).
A staple Aussie dish that can range from plain old ham and cheese to loaded pulled pork, smashed patty or mac ‘n’ cheese. But no matter what, you just can’t go wrong with cheese and bread.
Of course, you can chuck one together at home, but toasties can be fancy too and you can head to a few spots in Perth to grab a gourmet toasted creation on your next lunch break.
Basement, Level 101 St Georges Terrace, Perth WA 6000
A hidden gem, Foxtrot Unicorn isn’t just good for cocktails- they also serve up a killer jaffle. They come with their very own ‘jaffle crack seasoning’ along with garlic butter, crusted parmesan and a whole lot of cheese. Pair the perfect jaffle with one of their many exquisite cocktails and you’ve got yourself a match made in heaven.
Hardcore toastie fans will know there is just no way to look past Toastface Grillah. This funky, hip joint is dedicated to all things toasties with a whole range of delicious combos to try.
Get your hands on their ‘Chza’ with smashed patty, maple bourbon bacon, smokey BBQ relish, fried onion and American cheddar or the Ol’ Faithful ham and cheese which they do so damn well.
3 William St, Fremantle WA 6160
Melts is a gourmet bar that sure knows how to perfect the humble cheesy toastie. They’ve got a few choices with the highlights being a homemade meatball toastie and a mac ‘n’ cheese with spicy kimchi.
But the absolute seller? They have a s’mores toastie- nutella, biscuit crumbs and marshmallows on soft brioche bread.
218 William St, Northbridge WA 6000
A gorgeous little spot in Northbridge, Eillo does great coffee and delicious toasties to go along with it.
Their Daddy Mac is a cheesy macaroni masterpiece and the Porkstar with pulled pork and potato mash is the perfect hearty, winter treat. They also have a rotational menu that has featured a cheesy lasagne toastie in the past.
Toast My Curry
2/11 Milford St, East Victoria Park WA 6101
Curry and toasties? Pure genius, and it works.
Toast My Curry is taking the toastie world by storm with its very own, unique curry masterpieces. Spice it up even more with a Naastie- it’s a combination of naan bread and curry turned into a toastie with fillings like butter chicken, lamb keema and more.
Bread In Common
43 Pakenham St, Fremantle WA 6160
You’d assume a place called Bread In Common would have to nail any form of sandwich, and they sure do.
They’ve got daily baked, organic bread that makes for the perfect layers on a cheesy toasted sandwich. You’d have to try the old classic ham and cheese on their ciabatta bread, it’s just perfect.
168/15 Aberdeen St, Perth WA 6000
Flo Espresso is inspired by Korean street food, and they’ve made it onto this list because of their kimchi and cheese toasted sandwich.
Finish it off with one of their oven-baked mini donuts and you’ll be heading home with a happy belly.
Grilled To The Mac
Cheese is the star of the show at this amazing food truck dedicated to comfort food and traditional flavours with contemporary touches.
Grilled To The Mac has mastered the perfect grilled cheese sandwich. Add their mac ‘n’ cheese to it and you’ve got one heck of a toastie.
The Jaffle Shack
The Jaffle Shack had a lot to live up to when they made their name, but they’ve done a pretty stellar job.
Their jaffle menu is extensive with breakfast jaffles, vegetarian options and gourmet jaffles including a mee goreng jaffle. There’s no shortage of options here.
41 Edgehill St, Scarborough WA 6019
A local Scarborough cafe, Lady Latte whips up jaffles for takeaway or dine in.
They’ve got white, rye or gluten-free bread and a whole menu of gourmet choices. Our top picks- Miss Piggy (crispy bacon, scrambled egg, garlic aioli, mozzarella, parmesan and cheddar) and their Godfather (pork meatballs in napolitana sauce with mozzarella, parmesan and cheddar).
