One of Perth’s most beloved recurring pieces of graffiti has made a last gasp effort in Leederville.

A couple of months after Greens & Co. closed its doors for good, a familiar ol’ tag appeared on the empty café’s shopfront.

For years, a cheeky ‘CK’ was regularly spray-painted on the end of the late-night coffee-and-cake joint’s ‘Greens & Co’ sign.

There was also a well-known unconfirmed rumour that the graffiti was an in-house job – the fact that the ABN was registered as Greens and Cock from 2013 until December 2020 is a bit of a dead giveaway – but it was kinda genius. Every time it was ‘tagged’, it was all over Instagram.

In 2019, the original sign of its locally-known name, Greens & Cock, was listed on Gumtree, hyped as a ‘piece of local history’.

It’s understood the café closed over a rent dispute during Covid but, as the Bell Tower Times quite accurately said, “Whoever takes on the lease will have to accept this is how it’ll be.”
