Here’s our top six places to get an awesome feed in North Perth.
Whether your school days were good to you or not you’ll never be disappointed (or bullied) at The Classroom in North Perth. Bring your peers and enjoy nosh about a million times more sophisticated than what was served up at your old school canteen. Our faves include the wagyu cheeseburger with smoked bacon, coleslaw and beer battered onion rings, the Vietnamese pulled pork steamed bun and of course the hand-cut chips with Sriracha mayo. Receiving top marks are The Classroom’s cocktails, especially the espresso martini which is served up icy cold thanks to a whole lot of liquid nitrogen—safety goggles required. The classroom hosts $15 school dinners Tuesday to Thursday and a free quiz every Tuesday night, check their website for details.
The Old Laundry
Open early ‘til late, The Old Laundry is probably the only laundry in the world you would want to hang out in. The simple yet classy menu offers up delish brekky, lunch and dinner eats, and the light and airy space makes it the ideal place to drop by any time for a drink or a bite to eat. Serving up some of the prettiest dishes (edible flowers included), The Old Laundry also make some mean sweet treats and a killer coffee.
Engine Room Espresso
Serving up some of the best brews north of the river, Engine Room Espresso is another goodie to add to your North Perth hit list. Inside you’ll find plenty of caffeine to get you buzzing, laid-back tunes and cool artwork to gaze at while you sip the day away. If you’re after a little snack, Engine Room Espresso have you covered, with RAWsome treats and a small selection of breakfast options—the banana bread is a must try.
Addison & Steele Specialty Coffee
Possibly Perth’s biggest coffee nerds, the crew at Addison & Steele Specialty Coffee in North Perth brew up some pretty epic Small Batch Roasting Co. joe using all kinds of crazy contraptions. Serving up simple, delicious and meticulously plated dishes for brekky and lunch, they also stock crumpets from Wade Drummond and bagels by the Holy Bagel Co.

Another lovely little cafe to add to North Perth’s collection, Hobart Deli dish out tasty breakfast and lunch offerings on the daily.

They’ve also got yummy bagels, quiches and vego goodies. Add this one to the list of places to bring your mum!
North Perth newbie Satchmo Cafe have already secured a place in our hearts with their delicious New York deli-style fare. We’re especially keen on Satchmo’s Jewish dishes, namely Mamma’s matzo ball chicken soup, blueberry cheese blintz and the bagels of course.
