Perth Coffee Roasters is a family-owned/run business established in Perth in 2012. Perth Coffee Roasters operate from a roasting facility in Osborne Park with John being the master roaster and Jill manages the day-to-day running of the business and family.
Arriving at 269 Rokeby Road around noon, we were greeted with the guys from Hit 92.9 with #SpinToWin "a free baguette" deal via Baguette Me Not.
Once inside we were greeted with buzz of excitement. Rok Art Café is no ordinary café; it actually housed 5 different businesses in collaboration all under one roof. The building owned by Tracey Caddis, Artistic by Design and leasing out to Bonza Kitchen, The Prospect Project, Perth Coffee Roasters and Baguette Me Not with some of Tracey's paintings displaying on the wall towards the front entrance of the shop.

My hubby was very excited with his 'free' baguette and decided to go with the Birdy Nom Nom (Grilled Lemongrass Chicken) from the menu.
The Grilled Lemongrass Chicken has free-range chicken, paté, mayonnaise, pickled carrots and daikon, cucumber, cilantro, spring onions, seasoning, Sriracha sauce and chilli in it. Hubby was over the moon!
For me, the first and possibly the most important thing in a good Bánh Mì are the pickled carrots and daikon, second are the mayonnaise and the paté. Baguette Me Not ticked all the boxes in term of its pickles, mayo and paté. The flavour and seasoning were also perfect... I want second now!!!
and these macarons were A.M.A.Z.I.N.G with just the right level of sweetness too - perfect for my fussy taste buds
While hubby devoured his yummy baguette, I ventured over to say hello to the guys at PCR and was warmly greeted by John, master roaster/owner of Perth Coffee Roasters & their master barista, Iain Sheppard.
Iain make a mean cup of coffee, although I was a bit disappointed that the coffees came out in takeaway containers, even though we were dining in

These 'to die for' Chocolate Brownies were complimentary and they were made with love by the lovely Robert Campbell of PCR and I must say (being a chocoholic), that the brownies were simply DIVINE!
Grab one or maybe two to three slices if you're in the area!
We were also given a raw Iced Coffee made by the lovely Shannon of the Prospect Project using PCR coffee beans to try.
The Iced Coffee has espresso, almond milk, dates and vanilla in it. The almond milk was a bit intense for me but otherwise, I can definitely taste the dates and a mild coffee flavour.

Shannon also has a display of other raw treats, kombucha drinks and a range of retail goodies, including soy candles for purchase at the counter.
Overall hubby and I had an amazing time at Rok Art Café. Good food, friendly service, great atmosphere, café concept and vision. I can't wait to return.
Thank you Perth Coffee Roasters (Baguette Me Not and Prospect Project) for the amazing lunch and takeaway! We'll be back!!!
