Lake Espresso, Claremont
Where in Claremont can you sip a hot coffee with a scenic and peaceful view? We may have found the perfect little place at the Lake Claremont Golf Course called Lake Espresso. The location is indeed somewhat hidden from the street when turning off Davies Road. It is an easy 5 minute walk from the Claremont train station.
We ordered a couple of cappuccinos and a brekky wrap. Lake Espresso offer a super casual family friendly environment and the coffee is fantastic, one of the better park cafes we have visited in Perth. The staff were energetic and friendly. Our brekky wrap was a delicious combination of mushroom, egg, spinach and relish. For a simple park cafe the coffees were pretty good. Our topped up long macs had a dense layer of milk froth, that also held a nice little latte art pattern. The coffee was strong and served hot.
The parkland at Lake Claremont covers about 70 hectares. A path wraps around the lake with one side ideal for cycling and rollerblading and the other for nature walks. A small playground with BBQ facilities can be found a few metres away. The Claremont Golf Course borders the reserve and whilst we were enjoying the surroundings a few walkers stopped past for a takeaway coffee. The small complex also houses a gym with views.
