Where The Urban List Staff Love To Eat

By Anna Franklyn - 02 Aug 2016


If you want to become the most hated person in your office for a day, tell everyone they need to choose their number one favourite restaurant, cafe and bar in Perth. Based on the reaction from my colleagues, you’d think I just asked them to choose their favourite child—and considering none of us have kids and we’re all CRAZY about food, this question was just as bad. The Sophie’s Choice of Perth eating spots.

After MUCH conversation and some heated debate, everyone managed to narrow it down. Here’s where we love to eat, drink and play in Perth.

Favourite Cafe:

Little Sisto. The best coffee and the bacon and egg sangas are epic.

Favourite Restaurant:

Bivouac. Mediterranean inspired deliciousness. Get the feed me menu!

Guilty Pleasure:

Brika. The Greek yiros are stuffed full of slow-cooked lamb and chips—melt-in-your-mouth deliciousness (and way too close to our office!)

Drinking Spot:

Mechanics Institute. An epic rooftop bar in my fave hood. Plus, the 90s playlist speaks to my soul.

Favourite Cafe:

Little Way. Morning coffee in that sunny courtyard.

Favourite Restaurant:

Barque. Crispy prawn pancakes followed by the whole crispy fried fish.

Guilty Pleasure:

Short Order Burger Co. A perfectly cooked pattie in between melt-in-your-mouth brioche buns. Mmmm.

Drinking Spot:

Sweetwater Rooftop Bar. Everything is better on a rooftop.

Favourite Cafe:

Tiisch. There’s amazing attention to detail in everything they produce.

Favourite Restaurant:

Bib & Tucker. Location, location, location… and fish tacos.
