Aside from being one of the best bakeries in Perth, and we really could go on about the sweet treats here all day, Chu doesn’t lack when it comes to the coffee department either. 

Get a takeaway cup, forget your diet as you load up on a few pastries, and head over to sit at Hyde Park and watch the day go by. 

North Street Store

We adore North Street Store for their unbeatable cinny scrolls, and when we can grab one alongside a good cup of coffee it’s pretty much a no-brainer. 

Service here is always with a smile, and if you’re more of a savoury person there’s stuff like pork and fennel rolls or Ruben sandwiches.
