Deep Water Point Cafe

I’ve been at my new job now for nearly four months. Geeze time goes fast. And I’ve been lucky to find a fellow foodie in my office – the lovely She-ra. We had headed to visit Ohnamiya one day (http://perthmunchkin.com/2011/12/20/ohnamiya/) and when I saw a voucher on deals.com.au for a cafe just down the road I thought well that could be a nice spot to catch up again. Not a bad deal too – $24 for two lunch items and two drinks at Deep Water Point Cafe, very close to the office and it was a very pictureque spot down by the river.

It wasn’t a problem getting a table on that day. There were probably a few more people sat inside, but we perched outside and it being under the shade, it was nice. We had ordered before we sat down. I had gone for the BLAT – Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado and Tomato on a toasted bagel (with a lemon, lime and bitters), while She-ra ordered the Beef Burger and a chocolate milkshake.

Timewise, it didn’t take too long for our food to arrive. The first thing I noticed about mine was that it had mayo…… sigh. I so often say minus mayo but I hadn’t thought a BLAT would have any. I would have thought tomato sauce before mayo and I would have been fine on the tomato sauce front. You live and learn I suppose. Always say minus mayo if you don’t want it. But I pushed on and took in the ample toppings that there were piled onto my bagel.

The cut in half shot better illustrates how much was on board – so much avocado and plenty of bacon.

Eating it and not wearing it was probably the biggest challenge. Everything was nice and fresh and the taste was quite plesant. Not sure I’d rush back for another of these (perhaps the mayo had left me disappointed) but it was decent. Now across the table I’d have to say the burger did look pretty tasty.

I liked the look of the patty. And i’m told the burger was quite nice. As was the milkshake, which came served old school in a tall metal cup.

In all, hard to comment much on service. The only real interaction we’d had was at the til (which was fine) and when our lunches were delivered to us (also fine). It’s not a bad little spot and it is quite lovely to take a brief soujourn from the office for some quality time by the Swan. Despite my comments on the BLAT, I’m sure there’ll be a day when I fancy sneaking away to somewhere pretty for a bite of lunch and this place does fit the bill.

    Oh no!
    Poor reception when I questioned my bill.
    I bought a $25 coupon to receive $56 worth of food and the bill came to $57.30 so was more than willing to pay the $1.30 in cash. the staff member said not to worry, all was ok.
    i sat at the table and about 5 minutes later she approached us and said she charged us incorrectly. I asked to see the till receipt as I saw the total on the screen. A second staff member said we had to pay extra for salmon, which was already added into the total. Then she said we had to pay for the coupon as we hadn’t paid for it already. I told her the only way to receive the coupon was to pay for it before printing it off. This was sorted out correctly (as I read the menu correctly and I can add up) but turned what was supposed to be a pleasant morning into a situation where I was made to feel ridiculous and uncomfortable. We ate the poor meals quickly and walked away,even though I thanked the staff, feeling dissapointed in their service. A saving grace was that the tea and coffee were hot and tasted good.

      Oh no! That’s no good. I’m always disappointed when places make it uncomfortable to use vouchers… doesn’t encourage you to rush back, especially when the food isn’t that special. Glad to hear they served you a nice cuppa though! :)

    That place is an utter ripoff.Today, I ordered a calamari and salad for $18 and was served 5-6 small pieces in a average size bed of salad. A ripoff for $18.
    Never going there again.
