Lively Northbridge town has a new must-visit breakfast destination in Layup. This lofty and bright industrial space across from the Northbridge Hotel serves up coffee, house baked bread and epic breakfasts. 

Grouch & Co


Grouch & Co tout themselves as coffee worshippers and awesome individuals ­and Perth seems to agree. These specialty coffee roasters will serve you up a single origin ‘spro from their custom built Slayer that will knock your caffeine lovin’ sock off. 

Emily’s Corner


It seems 2015 is the year of the neighbourhood cafe and Emily’s Corner is a lovely little example. Head to this little Perth cafe for all day lunch and brekkie—until 7pm!

Holly Raye’s


The paint on the Anya Brock mural has dried, the cakes are baked and the delish coffee from Micrology Coffee Roasters is brewing and waiting for you. Bassendean locals and their furry pets now have an adorable neighbourhood cafe of their very own in Holly Raye’s.

The Local Hotel

South Fremantle

A new bar located in the 100+ year old Seaview hotel, The Local Hotel is fast becoming a mainstay of Freo townies. This heritage-chic pub has lifted the hospitality game in this busy seaside town and is the perfect place to down a pint.



tbsp. So hot right now. tbsp. They are all like “wow, here are our beautiful breakfasts all over your Instagram” and we are like “wow that looks delish” and they are like “well, that’s cause it is”. You get where I’m going with this.

Halfords Bar


Halford Bar. So sexy! This underground bar with its velvet couches and dicoball-esque lighting will make you think you’ve fallen down a sexy members-only-club rabbit hole. Bottle service please!

Gami Fried Chicken


Only the luckiest chickens fulfill their chicken destiny to become Gami Fried Chicken. Nestled down the bustling Shafto Lane, this Korean spiced chicken joint is going to be the Fat Friday food of choice. Remember that beer goes with fried chicken (they have an extensive list). You heard it here first.

Mister Walker

South Perth 

Located on the end of Mends Street Jetty, Mister Walker is the place to wine and dine with some million dollar city views. Their short menu of Australian contemporary food is sourced from local ingredients and events like Neighbourhood Mondays and Thrifty Tuesdays are on their way!

Blue Flamingo


Located where you used to dance in cages at the Old Leederville Hotel (yes you did!), The Blue Flamingo is a bar that's a mash up of South American/Cali vibes. Grab a Cuban pork sandwich and a Caipririnha in this airy tropical garden to ring in the summer.

Little Matcha Girl


Matcha, coffee and cake—oh my! Expect big things from this new cafe in Como. Little Matcha Girl specialises in exquisite Japanese inspired cakes that are baked on site. Think Black Sesame Cake, Matcha Eclairs, White Peach Financiers and creamy Matcha Lattes. Drool!
