First there was one, in Highgate, its flagship store. Then a second opened on the outskirts of Leederville, then three, St Georges Terrace, then a fourth in City Beach, then another one in the city then . . .wait . . . we think that’s it. Phew!

Perth’s coolest boutique bakery chain punches above its weight in terms of its food offering. Its bakery pumps out all the artisanal loaves and breads you might expect and they have a reputation for their epic doughnuts – rosemary and pistachio or maple pecan, to name just two – Danishes and proper sausage rolls and pies.

Mary Street’s menus vary slightly from venue to venue but breakfast is the hero no matter where you dine. Miso broth cured salmon with enoki, spinach and a slow cooked egg is a stunner.

You can have a bloody Mary if you like or go healthy with a smoothie. Either works when you’re ploughing through fried chicken with buttermilk pancakes, peanuts, maple syrup and a chilli fried egg.
