25 years of The Moon. Photos from our 1st year.

This year The Moon has been open for 25 years! We’ll be having a big Halloween party in October to celebrate.

Here’s a little flash back from the 1st year of The Moon, back in 1991. Our friend and regular contributor to Perth Poetry Club, Lorenna Grant took these photos of a local poet. She doesn’t recall his name. We’re so appreciative to receive a little piece of Moon memorabilia! If you have any old photos please send them through to info@themoon.com.au

Weekend Brunch Update

VeganBrunch
We’ve updated our weekend brunch menu with a bunch of new stuff including our brand new VEGAN BRUNCH! It’s a tasty little bouquet of grilled paprika tomatoes, a tofu & bean pattie, sauteèd mushrooms, herb salad with toasted pepitas and a side of salsa verde.. We’ve road tested it and all agree its pretty supreme! See you soon between 10am-4pm Saturdays & Sundays!

Closed Tuesday January 26

Hey everybody! We have decided to close today Tuesday the 26th of January. Unfortunately one of our Fringe shows was cancelled due to illness and it made more sense for us to give our staff a day off. We’ll be open again from 11am Wednesday the 27th of January. Sorry for any inconvenience caused! xo

Green World Revolution

We recently went to visit the inner-city farm of our micro herb supplier, Green World Revolution. These guys are secretly tucked away in Gladstone St Perth. We had trouble parking because there was a crane blocking the one-way street and a mobile coffee van parked in the laneway behind the brothel. We finally reached the gate signed ‘Gladstone Street Farm’ and entered this urban oasis. The proprietor, Toby, is a friggin’ awesome individual who runs this “not-for-profit, environmental social enterprise.” He’s about 7ft tall and the brains behind this micro-herb, sprout & micro-vegetable farm, servicing some of Perth’s best restaurants and creating jobs for the long term unemployed. From the solar-powered irrigation system to the packaging crate shingles on the sheds, Green World Evolution is recycling, growing and innovating.

We already use their herbs in our weekend brunch menu, but we’re playing with ways to feature them in our new summer food menu out in January.DSC02577
