The Peach Pit
Sitting pretty on the Scarborough Esplanade, The Peach Pit should definitely be your regular Sunday session hot spot. We can’t get enough of the ivy green walls, the uber cute booths, the high round tables, the murals and the pops of neon around the place. Not to mention the arcade games and the stunning bar.
The genius behind the cocktail list hails from Long Chim and you can get their signature cocktails for $10 between 5pm and 6pm every Monday to Friday. The Miami Splice is the one we’ll be ordering every.damn.time we’re there. It’s like a pina colada on crack with a hit of chilli. If cocktails aren’t your jam, you can get $6 wines and bubbles or schooners of tap beers and ciders.
Now onto the food—Peach Pit does a mean seafood platter with fried calamari, prawns, a couple of crayfish tails, scallops as big as your head, plus oysters, battered local snapper and sashimi salmon. Or if you’re craving something sweet the popcorn ice cream is a big kids’ sugar-laden dream—ice cream rolled in popcorn, topped with some delicious form of ice magic and sitting in a pile of chocolate soil that doesn’t taste too dissimilar to coco pops. But if you’re there on Sunday, it’s all about the $15 pizza and $15 jugs.
So, whether you’re after a big feed or just a couple of drinks by the beach, you’ll want to get yourself to The Peach Pit immediately if not sooner.
If you're stuck in Perth over the Easter break you'll definitely want to make a beeline for The Peach Pit—they're hosting a boozy Easter egg hunt. From 6pm on Saturday 20 April they will be hiding two dozen eggs and if you find one you'll score one of their limited edition Hot Cross Raspberry cocktails. Made with Gordon's Pink Gin, Pedro Ximinez, cinnamon, agave and chocolate bitters, it will easily make your Easter. First come, first served.
