A busy morning out with my mum and son required a quick coffee break so we ventured into nearby Louis Baxter. The cafe is owned by Eamon Sullivan (an Australian Olympic swimmer) and Laki Baker who met on Celebrity Masterchef; in fact Eamon won the competition. The name ‘Louis Baxter’ originates from combining the names of the owners French bulldogs. It is well positioned to offices and the Subiaco Railway station and boasts a menu using fresh local and seasonal produce and campos coffee. Louis Baxter has a small dining area inside with a variety of tables, high tables and bar stools and comfy cushioned ottomans. There is a brilliant mural dominating one wall by fashion illustrator Pippa McManus and bulb lights hanging from the roof. The overall effect of an urban warehouse has been cleverly designed.
We chose to have Flat White Coffees ($3.80), made from Campos Beans which were perfectly made and definitely hot. I chose the homemade Carrot Cake which was nice but a little dry and crumbly. It had a delicious cream cheese frosting and walnut pattern around the edge on the top. My mum chose to have a Savoury Muffin ($4.00) with pumpkin, spring onion and zucchini and she said it was the best she’d had in a long time. My son wolfed down their Banana Bread ($4.00) without any complaints, need I say more!
Louis Baxter is open from Monday to Saturday from 7am (8am Saturdays) until 4pm. As the cafe has limited seating be prepared to wait for a table.
