Here are the best cafes in Guildford.
Padbury’s Cafe Restaurant
One word for the food here: Wow.
But if there’s one thing you must try at Padbury’s, it’s their famous pancakes (pictured above). You’ll be raving about them along with everyone else after one bite, and posting them all over your Insta story.
All their other menu items are exceptional as well with fresh, seasonal tastes and Swan Valley wine to wash it all down. We guarantee you’ll be walking out of here with a smile.
It may be little, but Willing Coffee packs a punch when it comes to an awesome caffeine hit.
The Italian-inspired stop serves up some of the smoothest coffee in Guildford, sporting a totally gorgeous, light and bright interior with pink marble and cosy tables. On the food side of things, you can get your hands on fresh pastries, croissants, bagels and other tasty treats daily.
Looking for wholesome food to fill your belly? Look no further than Little Guildford.
The rustic-chic venue will have you feeling right at home with hanging pot plants, vintage ornaments and charming gardens. The menu is fresh and seasonal, loaded with local ingredients and flavour. 100% Guildford vibes from this gem.
Guildford Milk Bar
Quick service, great food and great prices- what more could you want?
It’s no wonder Guildford Milk Bar has a collection of regulars, with their fabulous coffee and delicious eats being pumped out in record time. The Vietnamese menu section is a definite must-try, but if that’s not your jam then there’s heaps of variety so you’ll have no trouble finding something sensational.
We heart a small business doing incredible things, and Courtney’s Cafe has got it going on.
It’s a takeaway cafe and coffee shop that’s perfect for a quick stop breakfast or lunch, plus the owners are always up for a friendly chat while you wait. Did I also mention they serve up insanely good toasties? And super sweet treats? I’m sold.
Little A’s Cafe
Discover adorable latte art and a range of breakfast and lunch options with an Asian twist at Little A’s Cafe.
The fun and vibrant atmosphere matches perfectly with the welcoming staff, plus they whip up a mean Bahn Mi and pancake stack. And their burgers are great. Pretty much everything is great.
The Lounge Room On James
Modern and casual, you have to stop by The Lounge Room On James for your next breakfast date.
Across the street from the Guildford railway station, there’s no shortage of options for a filling morning feed in a modern comfortable atmosphere. The Lounge Room big brekkie or parmesan scramble are our top picks here.
Chocolate Chilli Pork Company
Take a stroll along the antique strip and make sure you pop into Chocolate Chilli Pork Company for some fresh scones and local produce.
Filled with boutique products and little touches that compliment the atmosphere, you’ll find fresh homemade food on the menu along with coffee that’s made just right.
Poste- Hort Plan
Aside from the artisan coffee, house-baked cakes and light lunches, Cafe Poste is really winning our votes for their insanely gorgeous leafy scenery.
Completely zen out among gardens and antiques hidden behind the historic post office, you’ll almost all but forget you’re in the middle of Guildford. Make sure you admire the unusual antique and vintage pots on display, you might just have to leave after purchasing one or two.
Hall & Oats Cafe
In the heart of South Guildford, Hall & Oats Cafe are doing great coffee and food in a casual setting.
Get your hands on their breakfast tacos, big (emphasis on big) breakfast, fresh burgers your way and loads more. It’s super simple, and a great place to enjoy a catch-up and feed.
