Perth has seriously got it goin’ on these days. With so many new restaurants, cafes and bars popping up, we’re struggling to keep up!

We reckon others might be finding it tough to stay on top of what’s new and hip as well; which is why we’ve lovingly prepared you a list of 22 new cafes, bars and restaurants you need to visit.

Open Now

Duck Duck Bruce


Duck Duck Bruce has won us over with the names of their menu items alone. The “I Didn’t Quit Sugar” breakfast (vanilla pancakes, sour cherries, orange maple cream, pecan praline and gingerbread crumb) is enough to make us want to move in. Do yourself a favour and visit this new Freo gem.

Modus Coffee

Mount Lawley

Two mates who love coffee and hospitality want to share their favourite things with us. So that’s how Modus was born. The newest addition to the Mount Lawley cafe scene, these guys are dishing up amazing brekky burgers, Reuben sangas and of course some top notch coffee.

Someday Coffee Co


Someday is a delightful new suburban cafe in Floreat, serving up damn good coffee and delicious baked treats that will be calling your name from the pretty glass cabinets at the counter.

Grounded Days


Grounded Days is a sweet little spot that not only sells coffee, juices, kombucha, protein balls and loads of other healthy treats; they also stock gorgeous houseplants, locally made beauty products and jewellery. Go nuts and support ya local.

Spritz Spizzicheria

Mount Hawthorn

Enjoy a taste of Italy right in the middle of Mount Hawthorn at Spritz Spizzicheria. Yes, they do Aperol Spritz, as the name would suggest, along with a bevy of other Italian drinks and food.

Fat Maki

West Perth

Sushi on steroids is what you’ll find at this new West Perth lunch joint. Fat Maki has huge sushi rolls packed to the brim with flavoursome ingredients, and one of the options is the Bacon Cheeseburger Sushi Roll. Yes, you read that correctly.



Pachamama is a delightful new local kitchen in Scarborough, serving up organic wholefoods, coffee, juices and smoothies.

Tom Dick and Harry’s

Mount Hawthorn

Solid no-nonsense breakfast and great coffee is what’s on offer here at Tom Dick & Harry’s. Plus they do ALL DAY BREAKFAST. Yes, you heard correctly. Sleep as long as you like, because you can get eggs on toast, muesli or pancakes at whatever damn time you like.



Monsterella is a rad little new Italian restaurant which is BYO, family-run and offers loads of delicious authentic Italian menu options. Plus, its name is fun to say. So many reasons to go.

Kuld Creamery


You can never have enough ice-cream joints, which is why we’re super pumped about the opening of Kuld. Kuld specialise in hand-made craft ice cream churned right here in WA, plus, they only source local WA ingredients.

Panda & Co


A brand spanking new brekky and lunch spot on Bulwer Street, Panda & Co dishes up some of the most inventive food we’ve ever seen—like Sausage & Egg Bao-nedict or Korean Waffles of Mass Destruction. Intrigued? Yes, us too.



Scarborough’s new favourite pop-up gallery and cafe is Seaburbia. Delicious coffee and tasty smoothie bowls are on the menu, and it’s DOG FRIENDLY! Bring your pooch for a gorgeous start to your day by the sea.

Quills Bar & Eatery

Wattle Grove

Good food, good beer and good wine are what you’ll find at Quills in Wattle Grove. Loads of tasty menu items that all use local WA produce, plus weeknight dinner deals like Wine-O Wednesdays and Beef & Beer Thursdays.

Starfish Bar

Mount Lawley

Starfish say they have ‘shucking good seafood’, and we believe them. Located opposite The Queens, Starfish Bar serves up everything from fresh oysters to Perth’s tastiest fish and chips, salads and your favourite ocean fare.

The Caffeine Dispensary


The team at The Caffeine Dispensary call themselves ‘coffee craftsmen’ so we think they know what they’re doing. They wanted to create a place where friends and family can gather to relax and enjoy great coffee, as well as tasty treats and pastries which are the most mouth-watering things you’ll ever lay eyes on.



TWR stands for The Waiting Room—but we’d happily spend our whole night in there rather than just wait there. Located in the lobby of the brand spanking new Crown Towers, they do some seriously impressive cocktails, have awesome gin, whisky and tequila lists, and serve very fancy tapas from 5pm.


Elizabeth Quay

Laputa is the most entertaining buffet you’ll ever encounter. It has a range of live active cooking stations where artistic chefs demonstrate their culinary expertise and talent to create amazing menu items using top-notch produce.



Epicurean open-kitchen dining experience in the new Crown Towers Perth will blow your mind. Artisan cold cuts, freshly baked breads, cheeses, house-smoked briskets, pastrami, ribs, salads and so many cuisine options. They even have authentic Indian tandoor ovens where they prepare naan breads and skewered meats. But the cherry on top of this cake is the giant chocolate fountain.

Grab A Yabby

Mount Lawley

If you like eating with your hands, you need to get yourself to this Beaufort Street eatery. Grab A Yabby is a Cajun seafood grill where all the dishes are designed to share—with your hands. Yes, that’s right, as the name suggests, you are literally grabbing your dinner. Don’t worry, you get gloves and bibs to make sure you don’t get too messy. But we promise the mess is worth it.

Coming Soon

Little H Cafe


The newest kid on the northern suburbs block is Little H. Eggs on toast, bagels, burgers, cakes, granola and delectable coffee is what’s on the menu—stay tuned to find out when they officially open their doors.

Tommy Sugo


The people at Tommy Sugo have been knocking our socks off at their Nedlands restaurants, and now they plan to open another store in Leederville. Go do yourself a favour and try their traditional Italian eats.


North Beach

Labuda is a rad little juice bar on Flora Terrace that will be providing the community with healthy AND affordable treats in March 2017. Juices, smoothies, smoothie bowls, coffee, teas, raw treats, fresh rolls and salads will all be on offer, so pencil this one in.
