This quaint little red brick attic has been serving some of the best coffee in Freo for a long time now, and it draws quite the loyal following. All the food at The Attic is cooked fresh in-house and if the easy takeaway options in the cabinet aren't enough to satisfy, their breakfast menu will. From their shakshouka, green chilli eggs and an open quesadilla with black beans, jalapenos and a fried egg and avocado, the options are endless.
Even if you don’t yet know about Sprolo, you’ve surely driven past it on Canning Highway a number of times. So next time you’re in South Perth, we highly recommend stopping by for brekky—we promise you won’t regret it. They have one of Perth’s most unique breakfast menu’s going round, including their traditional Singaporean brekky of half boiled eggs, sourdough toast and kaya (coconut and egg jam).
Architects and Heroes
Saving locals of Subiaco from caffeine deprivation on the daily, Architects and Heroes are serious about their coffee, with a high-end espresso machine, cold brew bar, syphon coffee, cold drip coffee and steam punk. Their all-day breakfast includes the reliable and usual suspects like smashed avo, poached eggs, bagels, French toast and some of the best in-house baked muffins you’ll ever see.
Finlay & Sons No 917
When it comes to breakfast (and food in general), you simply can’t go wrong with Finlay & Sons no 917. Everything is beautiful, from their interiors to the presentation of their food.

If $5 eggs on toast every weekday isn’t enough reason to visit Oxford Yard in Leederville, I’m not sure what is.

Manna Wholefoods & Cafe

This family-owned hideaway has a secret garden in the streets of West Leederville where you can enjoy breakfast surrounded by pretty greenery. Piccolo Corner's brekky menu is full of all sorts of deliciousness, but if you haven't tried the pumpkin smash you're not a true Perthling.
