Unlike other cafes with ever-changing menus filled with the latest trends, local bake shop & café Sherbet, specialises in old-fashioned family recipes that have proven a hit with Perth cake-lovers.
The family-run café, owned by Matthew & Susan Perroni , has operated in Maylands for eight years and expanded in 2017 after its mouth-watering baked goods found major success in the area.
Baking great cakes is in this family’s DNA, with Matthew Perroni’s parents running several successful family cake shops in Mt Hawthorn, West Leederville and South Perth. In dedication to his family and heritage he has even named one of his cakes ‘Nonna Felicia’s Sicilian apple cake’, after his grandmother who is 98 in January, and still lives in Mt Hawthorn.
“I learned everything I know from my mum and dad. I’ve been making vanilla slice since I was 14,” Mr Perroni said.
In addition to its delicious range of cakes, the bakery is also known for its great ambience and music, and provides the warm feelings evoked from being in your own grandma’s kitchen.
“At Sherbet we believe in serving coffee and homemade cakes with no attitude. We are 100% focused on our service and products and we want everyone walking out happy,” Mr Perroni said.
Sherbet is also involved in supporting the local community.
“We never sell old cakes – we always give them away to charity and people who need the food,” he said.
The Perroni’s don’t stop there either. They also enjoy activating streets to attract other stores onto the same Maylands shopping strip.
Last year Sherbet won an Activation Award for Best Shop Front from the Maylands Business Association.
