Where to brunch in Perth? Well you are in luck! Here are the best brunching spots North of the river.
Summer is on the way which means it’s the perfect weather to get up and out for brunch with a side of sunshine to accompany. Whether it’s a quick bite pre-work during the week, or a lazy leisurely meal on the weekend, brunch is a guaranteed good time.
You may have caught our top picks for brunch south of Perth already, so here’s our list for the Northies out there – you can have your eggs with a side of yum!
Someday Coffee Co
Floreat’s Someday Coffee Co don’t just top the list thanks to their aesthetically pleasing interior (think pastel pink, terrazzo stone and fresh plants). It’s a winning combination in brunch thanks to their delicious coffee (beans supplied by Micrology Coffee Roasters), Kommunity Brew Kombucha and an impressive list of dishes that jump off the menu begging to be eaten.
There’s something for the healthy conscious in the form of paleo pumpkin bread, Buddha bowls and granola. And while those are extremely tasty in themselves, the corn fritters with chilli caramel or the cheesy house burger also hit the spot for those after something a little more sinful.
With arguably one of Perth’s best views for a restaurant, Odyssea in City Beach is impressive both in its vast size, as well as the food being slung out by the kitchen.
Serving brunch until 11am, Odyssea have a menu that straddles both the classics side of the first meal of the day, as well as some interesting twists or fusions. For the sweet-inclined, the banana bread is a must order with its peanut butter caramel, rhubarb Turkish delight, creamed marshmallow and Valrhona chocolate (is your mouth watering yet?). Or if you only have eyes for savoury, try their version of eggs benedict with braised beef brisket, mustard hollandaise and tomato pickle.
Best of all, you can relax with the sea breeze in tow, and a cheeky peach bellini too.
It’s a bit of a hidden gem, but Rokeby Road’s Boucla is a hub for yummy Mediterranean food and great coffee. And the desserts, oh the desserts. The Turkish eggs with garlic yoghurt, nutty chilli butter, dill and sourdough is a really unique take on your standard egg breakfast, as is the avocado with mini croissant, bacon jam, cheddar and lemongrass caramel. But it doesn’t stop there with the menu also offering a heavily spiced shakshuka, burnt pork eggs with hollandaise and an apple crumble porridge.
Pixel Coffee Brewers
Pixel Coffee Brewers in Leederville is proof that good things come in small packages.
It’s a tiny space, but that doesn’t stop them from handling volumes of people flooding in and out to get their hands on some of Perth’s best coffee, tasty take away goods, cake and for those able to get a table, brunch dishes that are oh-so-instagrammable. Cakes are made in-house by baking royalty Annie Sheeve, and decorate their social media feeds in a manner akin to beckoning with a crooked finger. The menu has a distinct nourish feel to it, with the acai bowl, smashed pumpkin and pixel plates all topping the list as must orders.
Flora & Fauna
Don’t let the words vegan mac and cheese fool you, what they’re doing at Flora & Fauna is seriously delectable.
It’s a heavily vegan and gluten free menu, with bursts of colour from fruit or flowers decorating each dish. While seating is pretty rare to snag, it’s well worth the wait to get your hands on dishes like the goji superfood muesli, the Canadian style French toast and the bruschetta with it’s three different tomato varieties stacked high.
Wash your bites down with fresh cold pressed juice – they have them in all colours of the rainbow to make your insides sing.
Paper Avenue Cafe
Joondalup has for too long been waiting for a stellar brunch joint to open, and now we have it in the form of Paper Avenue Café.
First off, if you haven’t checked out their different latte options, these are worth a drive alone. They don’t just look pretty in their colours of pink, green, beige and brown, they also are good for you, designed with wellness in mind. The strawberry swoon is particularly worth trying in our opinion! To accompany your drink, there’s so many dishes to choose from that all tastes will be pleased. The breakfast curry, pumpkin and sweet potato rosti and the Spanish spice are all hearty, flavoursome and unique to the café. Which is just what you want when discovering a new to-be-local.
Duncraig’s Little H is a breath of fresh air in suburbia, and the crowds headed there each weekend are testament to the good work they’re doing.
There’s plenty of seating inside and out, which means if you choose the latter you can relax in the sun with your favourite four-legged pal in tow too. The menu has the kinds of highlights that will leave you wanting more: jalapeno hash with spicy fried chicken, avocado benedict and of course the ever-popular red velvet pancakes with cream cheese drizzle. You’ll find yourself headed back over and over again to make your way through the different dishes available.
Mary Street Bakery
When it comes to venues at the top of their brunch game, Mary Street Bakery have their formula down pat.
That’s why they now boast four different sites, spanning from Mount Lawley to Perth to West Leederville. They bake their own bread, which in itself is absolutely excellent, and the dishes that populate their menu are just as impressive. The newest dish to tick all of our tastebud boxes: blackbeans, corn bread, chilli and fried egg. But there’s also their staple classic – the fried chicken with buttermilk pancake, peanuts, maple chilli and egg. Wash it down with one of their malted milkshakes or steaming hot cup of coffee.
When you step inside Chinta Café, it’s like being transported overseas to Bali.
Not just in décor, but also with the menu offering which spans from east to west. After all, any place that offers nasi goreng with satay chicken skewers first thing in the morning is heaven-sent in our eyes! There’s also the gado gado, which is an Indonesian street food dish full of vegetables and spicy peanut sauce, and the Vietnamese sizzling pancake with mushroom, tomato and beans. Or if you like things a little more traditional, you can enjoy the smashed avo, the croissant royale with brie, bacon and hollandaise, or the French toast with nutella, berry coulis and fruits.
West End Deli
West Perth’s neighbourhood bistro West End Deli arguably has some of our city’s best scrambled eggs on offer.
Open every day from 7am to 3pm, diners can enjoy waffles with strawberry swirl ice-cream and toasted almonds, granola with burnt butter pannacotta, or the incredible house omelette with goats cheese, chives and toast or baguette (always baguette in our opinion!). Beyond these items, the team flex their creativity and deft touch with ingredients to include the likes of stretched curds with kale, avocado, preserved lemon and dukkah, or the tempura prawn with mayonnaise, lettuce, pickled carrot and coriander. Feeling hungry yet? We suggest you book a trip asap.
Satchmo is a café which doesn’t just have soul food on offer, it is pure soul too.
Bagels make up a heavy rotation throughout the menu, in the form of savoury or sweet, or even better: the cheeseburger or Mississippi special (southern fried chicken, chipotle mayo, kale slaw and watermelon on the side). And while we do love a carb teat, the blueberry and ricotta blintzes, matzo ball chicken soup, and challah French toast with roasted fruit are all to die for. And then there’s the knish (Jewish pastry) and Louisiana gumbo too – all of which are under $20. This North Perth café is tried and tested, constantly pumping out delicious dish and after dish. It’s the kind of place you would happily call your local and head back repeatedly for.
