Bringing a much-needed breath of fresh air to the Nedlands dining scene, Little Way is the sort of classy bistro everyone wishes would pop up in their neighbourhood—the perfect place to drop in for a coffee, wine or a bite at any time of the day.
Located in a stunning heritage building at the river end of Broadway, Little Way threw open its cute blue doors earlier this month and is already impressing everyone that walks through them.
The food is spot on but let me just wax lyrical about the interior for a minute because the decor at Little Way is divine—stripped back, modern and sophisticated, with wooden share tables, exposed brick walls, leather booth seating, a beautiful old fireplace and a lush (and huge) outdoor garden area. Also behind Subiaco’s The Village Bar, the crew here have gone for a casual, accessible style and it’s evident to see that Little Way really is meant for everyone.
It’s also clear to see that a lot of thought and love has not only gone into the interior but the menu, too. Influenced by modern Mediterranean flavours, the food on offer here is fresh, honest, uncomplicated and really, really tasty.
For my non-seafood-loving dining partner to still be gushing about the prawns a week after our visit is testament to the quality of food being dished out at Little Way.
The crispy zaatar prawns with lemon aioli were indeed gush-worthy.
They were also the perfect start to a cracking meal, that also included a fresh and light jamon serrano ham, watermelon, feta and mint entree, a beef cheek pizza (yup, two of my favourite things combined!) and a gorgeous WA lamb fillet salad bursting with mint, feta, pomegranate, cucumber, cous cous and almonds.
There are plenty of delish (mostly Australian) wines and craft beers on the menu, as well as some epic sounding cocktails.
Go for brekky and you’ll be treated to coffee from Loaded Roasters and a short and sweet menu that includes bircher museli, a perfect avo smash and a moreish looking smoked salmon, beetroot, baked ricotta and spinach sourdough creation (mental note: go back for that!)
With delicious food, good wine, sunny spots, dark corners, coffee for the morning, cocktails for the evenings and a feast that goes all day long, Little Way could just become your new fave hangout.
