Polly wanna cracker?? Polly wants coffeeeee. I'm going to assume this is the inspiration for this pop-up like coffee house that sits in the heart of Perth's cultural center. Polly Coffee Bar resembles a bird avery in it's structure, coloured models of birds perch over railings, and the counter cabinet displays an array of beak-friendly snacks such as vege poppy seed bagels and pumpkin seed rye sandwiches (taking the bird association too far?)
|Polly stocks a selection of European packaged treats and drinks including Hansi soda|
|One regular soy cap take-away|
|I like the simplicity of gray concrete and steel|
Outside of its appearance, the coffee here is really good and I'd definitely recommend it over the Caffissimo just nearby (morning City commuters, a worthwhile detour).
I ordered a smoked salmon sandwich on rye with my coffee which the European chick behind the counter made up new for me instead of grabbing from the display. I wish this could have meant my sandwich was going to be fresh however and I was disappointed to find the bread a bit dry. The fillings were good though, plenty of smokey salmon coupled with its usual complementary companions; cream cheese and capers ( I'd have liked a few more capers if were getting picky). Avocado and baby spinach joined the other fresh fillings too.

|you can see the dryness can't you???|
Polly is a fitting addition to Perth's developing cultural hub (we try), but next time I'll try the sauteed mushroom and pumpkin version and hope they bothered to buy a fresh loaf that day.
