Mount Lawley’s neighbour has a tasty cafe scene of its own- time to try it out.
I know you’re tempted to head to the Beaufort Street section in Mount Lawley for your weekend cafe fix, but why not try out its just as buzzing neighbour Inglewood?
While Mount Lawley seems to have stolen the food spotlight for now, Inglewood has still been quietly working away building its own incredible food and cafe scene.
Skip the crowds and enjoy dining on all-day breakfast, creamy coffee and dreamy shokupan.
So, where can you find the best cafes in Inglewood?
Finlay & Sons
There’s something magical going on at this Inglewood corner, and it’s Finlay & Sons.
If the busy flow of cafe goers doesn’t sell you on how good this place is, one taste of their hearty all-day breakfast options will have you convinced without a doubt. There’s plenty of options for any dietary requirements (gluten-free folk rejoice), but a special shoutout to the hash brown benny and smashed avocado. Plus the locals swear by their coffee- what more could you want from a cafe?
Chubby Boy Breakfast & Bar
You may have seen Chubby Boy Breakfast & Bar blowing up your Insta feeds as of late, and for good reason.
A quirky little Japanese style eatery full of fun menu items, it’s made it onto our list of faves with ease. Get ready to have your mind blown by their ‘shokupan’- fluffy white bread originating from Japan, and they’re serving up slabs of it topped with everything savoury and sweet. Your only issue here will be choosing which one to chow down on.
TRIO Cafe & Wine Bar
Technically in Mount Lawley, but we’re counting it anyway because it sits right on the border- so close enough!
TRIO Cafe & Wine Bar is an absolute delight, and you need to get there ASAP. A slice of Italy on Beaufort Street, they serve up breakfast, dinner, wine and cocktails in a rustic and warm venue of exposed bricks and hanging wine glasses.
Betty and Dave’s
Feel nostalgic with retro vibes and a totally adorable, bright pink coffee machine at Betty and Dave’s.
You won’t be disappointed by the coffee that comes out of that machine either, along with a menu of delicious eats and a cabinet full of fresh sweets and rolls. Make sure you head round the corner when you’re done as well to admire their new groovy mural.
Sugar & Nice
Inspired by a New York bakery, Sugar & Nice will have you covered when you need a sweet fix.
Leave self-control at the door and indulge in brownies, blondies, croissants, bagels- you name it, they’ve probably got it! But the cinnamon scrolls deserve a particular special mention, they almost give North Street Store a run for their money.
This little cafe/plant decor/giftware is a gem of a find.
Grow Cafe serves up Toastface Grillah toasties, sweet and savoury treats and coffee while you browse around their collection of plant pots from local artisans and a large range of plants- because you definitely need to add one more house plant to your collection.
Jessie’s Curry Kitchen & Cafe
Craving some curry? Jessie’s Curry Kitchen & Cafe will fix you up.
No-frills needed, everything here is hearty, homey and made with a heap of TLC. Jessie sure knows how to cook up a mean curry, and you’ll be delighting in all the classics like hand-made lamb paratha and curry puffs either dine-in or takeaway.
One of the lesser-known, Skoop Me is a small community-based cafe with tasty food and friendly service.
If you like Nasi Goreng you’ll absolutely love the homemade one they serve up here, along with homemade samosas and chutney. The coffee is also insanely good, a must-try if you’re looking for a little local spot in the area.
