Can’t keep up with all the cool new cafes popping up around Perth? Don’t worry, we're here to help you filter what's good.

We’ve rounded up some of our fave new Perth cafe openings so all you have to worry about is what to order on your next brunch date.

So without further ado, here are some of the best new cafes in Perth, as well as a few cheeky bonus spots that have just started serving brunch.

Kin Coffee


Another fresh face joining the revamped Leedy strip, Kin Coffee makes an instant impact with its seriously aesthetic fitout. The menu reflects those light and airy Japanese-inspired interiors, with a small but mighty selection of brunch dishes with yummy Asian twists. Think soy-marinated egg with avocado on toast, chashu breakfast sandos, milk bread French toast and matcha granola with soy milk pudding.

Egg Spot 

North Perth

By now you should be familiar with the popular Freo market eatery, Egg Spot. Their epic egg-filled burgers are the ultimate hangover cure, so thank god they decided to share the love with those of us living on the opposite end of town by opening up a new North Perth cafe.

Viaje Coffee

Mount Lawley

Honestly, we’re a sucker for a cute pink cafe, but this new Mount Lawley gem is more than just a pretty face. The kitchen is serving up insanely delish dishes from a nostalgic dippy eggs with soldiers to a gourmet grilled prawn roll that’ll blow your mind.

Folk & Merchant


The latest in a slew of the new openings popping up in Doubleview, this bustling community-centric cafe slash retail space is overflowing with effortless boho vibes that’ll transport you straight to Bondi. Drop by for a smoothie bowl or epic open sandwich then browse the cute lifestyle goods on offer in-store. If you stick around long enough you might also come across a pop-up yoga class or a live acoustic set or two.

Abacus Espresso


Tucked away down the new Electric Lane in Leederville, Abacus is serving terracotta-hued Scandi vibes and a whole lot of crowd-pleasing cafe bites that’ll hit just the right spot when those mid-morning hunger pangs settle in. They’ve got everything from bagels and toasties to healthy wraps and salads, all of which you can wash down with a batch brew or two. Oh and it's also dog friendly, so feel free to bring your pup along too.

Zonts Bakehouse


This may not be a dine-in cafe, but considering the crazy good-quality croissants coming out of this bakehouse, we’re happy to just swing by for takeaways—which hot tip: you can easily take down to the park to enjoy your baked treats in the sunshine. The new coffee shop and croissanterie is the first public store from the crew behind some of Perth’s tastiest croissants, and a very welcome addition to the western end of Northbridge, right near the decadent desserts on offer at Cafe Guilty Pleasures. Expect an epic selection of different sweet and savoury croissants as well as a plant-based range for all your vegan friends that hits just as hard.

Cup & Co


The third Cup & Co to hit Perth, this new cafe opening this Friday 26 November is tucked away at the bottom of the new Eden apartment complex with a spacious alfresco area overlooking the lush parklands of Perry Lakes. Head Chef George Tsimpidis (formerly at Brika) has whipped up an all-day menu packed full of mouth-watering brunch options, from huevos rancheros and crab omelette to wagyu steak and a panko-crusted chicken roulade. If you need an extra push to check it out, they’re slinging free coffee on their opening day.

Ol’ Buoy


Okay, so technically this one’s not really a cafe, it’s a kiosk, but with its primo beachside location and the talented Daisies and Some Day crew behind it, you really can’t go wrong at Ol’ Buoy. Grab an iced oat milk latte and a brekky burger lathered in kasundi sauce (preferably with an added hashbrown) after your morning dip.

Micrology Coffee Roasters

Osborne Park

The first brick-and-mortar joint from the wholesale coffee roasters behind some of Perth’s best coffee shops, you know the brew is always going to be on point at Micrology Coffee Roasters. But what you might not expect is the cute interior fitout and banging little food menu which includes baked goods like gourmet sausage rolls, tarts and croissants alongside tasty smoked chicken sandos and conti rolls. It’s been open a few months now, but considering they're only operating Monday to Friday you may not have had a chance to get around it…so consider this your reminder to make some time in your diary. 

Bonus: Restaurants Now Open For Brunch

While these joints aren't anything new, we thought we'd draw your attention to a few awesome new brunches on offer around Perth from established restaurants that you should definitely add to your must-try list.

Short Order


Short Order know how to make a mean burger, but they've recently just launched a new Sunday brunch at their Freo outlet and it's honestly the stuff of hangover dreams. Just picture a greasy American style brekky with fluffy hotcakes drowned in syrup and yummy sausage and egg muffins, all served up alongside pet nat mimosas and bloody mary's. Available 11am 'til 2pm Sundays.

Mount Hawthorn

If the stunning pink-hued decor hasn't already drawn you to Pogo for dinner, the delectable Middle Eastern-inspired menu sure should. It's extremely popular amongst Mount Hawthorn's foodies, so much so they were crying out for them to open during the day. Well, those calls have finally been answered with a brand spanking new all-day brunch menu now on offer. And with gob-smacking bites like chicken roti and Yia Yia's dumplings, trust us, it will not disappoint.

Yes Please


Open 'til 2am most nights of the week, Yes Please isn't the kind of place you think of for breakfast. But with a new chef at its helm, they decided to throw open the doors a little early to feed the hungover folks of Northbridge. With the new menu featuring the likes of pulled pork scrambled eggs, burrata and beans, and sous vide eggs with your choice of sides, not to mention the best bloody mary you'll find in Perth alongside bottomless batch and cold brew, we reckon they've nailed it.
