Take in the views at Perth’s best coastal cafes.

Perch up in the sunshine and dig into wholesome brunches, boozy cocktails, food coma-worthy lunches and perfectly brewed cuppas.

We’re pretty lucky here in WA to have some of the most postcard-perfect coastline views in the world, and what better way to soak them in than at a super cute coastal cafe with food and drink in hand.

Add these perfect coastal cafes to your must-tries.

Canteen Trigg

It doesn’t get more coastal than Canteen.

Right on the shore of Trigg beach, you’ll be pressed to find a day this cute little cafe isn’t packed to the brim with coast walkers and sea breeze seekers- and for good reason.

Aside from being fitted out in calming beach shack style with casual seating and 10/10 views, the menu here is pretty spot on. Plus, for the most part, it’s pretty healthy with a heap of whole foods, healthy bowls and vegan options.

Little Bay

Little Bay is about as picture-perfect as the sparkling view over Watermans Bay. 

The gorgeous beachside cafe is constantly abuzz with activity, and it’s no surprise when it’s one of the most Insta-worthy coast spots we’ve ever seen. Boho furniture meets crisp whites in Hamptons style with swing chairs, stone tables and plenty of sunshine. The food and drink? Just as good- plus, your fluffy friends are welcome.

It’s no secret that Bib & Tucker has made a pretty big reputation for itself in Perth, so what’s all the hype about?

Let’s start with the mouthwatering, fresh local produce packed with flavour they plate up, or the magical views over Leighton Beach, or the uber-friendly staff and eye-pleasing rustic-chic interior. You get the picture.
