Percy's Aeroplane

Percy's Aeroplane is named after a World War II pilot (the pilot also live in Kew) and it is owned by Wesley Lim. Lim found an antique model plane with striking and vibrant yellow to match the Ferrari yellow FB70 La Morzocco 2 Group Head machine. The model plane now becomes an icon of Percy's Aeroplane.

The cafe have two main dining area; the front room is slightly smaller best fitted for 2-4pp and the back room whch also leads to a courtyard area for larger groups. There was a rustic vibe decorated with random ornaments scattered around the cafe. The courtyard would be nice on summer.

Matcha Pannacotta - house baked granola, coconut shards and fresh berries ($14.5). You have to request this menu cause it's not written on the menu. Honestly, I came to this cafe to taste this dish. As some of you have known, I love pannacotta and I also love matcha so this dish instantly have a strong appeal to me. The pannacotta was tasty with a clear taste of green tea in it and the rest of the ingredients added texture and flavour to the pannacotta.

Smoked Buxton Trout - herb potato roesti, baby spinach, lemon with a poached egg and dill mayo dressing ($18.9). I love this dish so much, the potato roesti was crunchy but moist and well seasoned inside, the salmon was salty but mixed in with the mayo, well cooked egg and spinach, everything just worked.

They also served a decent cup of coffee. The let down was the service, I was there with my friend and her baby and they are not exactly friendly. They seems frantic and a bit lost seems the cafe was pretty busy. The cafe is not exactly kid friendly since there were limited space for strollers and if you are seated at the communal table at the back, prepare for at least 2/3 people ask you "Where's the toilet?". It's pretty hard to get any attention from the staff since they are only in the room when they are delivering the food. Maybe they needed more staff on peak hours to help them handle the crowd.
