If pavlova and pancakes are two of your favourite sweet treats, Managing Director Carmelo Cirillo says you need to head to Little H café in Perth.

“Our pavlova pancakes are definitely a favourite among our customers and something that sets as apart from every other café. A specialty dish of ours, the pavlova pancakes are served with a coconut base, fresh fruit and passionfruit syrup,” says Carmelo.

The modern menu combines sourcing fresh local produce and brunch staples which Carmelo says will deliver comfort and flavour.

“We also have the classic eggs benedict, with our not-so-classic signature house made hashbrowns, which is another favourite among customers, laid with bacon, poached eggs and hollandaise,” he says.

Nestled in the coastal suburb of Duncraig, Carmelo, who owns the café with his wife Vanessa Cirillo, says Little H is a modern and aesthetic local haunt among the growing café scene in the area.

“We took over the business from the previous owners in November 2020, and have continued on its legacy,” says Carmelo.

“It’s been fantastic, we’ve got a great customer base and excellent staff here in the community. Our aim was to continue to drive quality and customer service.”

Featuring hexagon tables, concrete walls broken up with lush green indoor plants and a crisp white alfresco outdoor dining area, Carmelo says it’s a relaxing space to enjoy a cup of coffee.

“We serve Ultimate Wingman from Locale Coffee Roasters as our house blend. It’s the perfect all-rounder, made up of Colombian, Brazilian and Indian coffees. It’s full-bodied, with mild acidity and a balanced finish. Just like any great wingman, it’s always got your back,” he says.

“Locale has worked with the business for five years, and we’ve always been able to rely on them to provide a consistent blend.”

For Carmelo, the most fulfilling part of owning Little H is being able to execute great service and products that keep customers coming back.

“When you look around the room on a Saturday or Sunday and see a full café of people enjoying their coffee, smiling and laughing, it’s such a rewarding feeling,” says Carmelo.

“To be able to provide stability for our staff and create an environment where they enjoy coming to work and delivering great service to customers, makes it all worth it.”
