Applecross is home to the famous cafe strip on Ardross Street known as ‘The Village’ where keen foodies can find some of the city’s best cafes.

Sit under the famous jacaranda-covered streets in this picturesque suburb and waste away a sunny day eating from the best cafes in the area. Once you’ve finished up you can enjoy a bit of retail therapy from boutiques like Hyperluxe, LuluLemon, and Chachi Store to make for the perfect day. 

1. Nic and Kolo

Regardless of whether or not you’re an Applecross local, you need to set your sights on Nic and Kolo.

It’s the perfect place to spend hours on a summer morning with some delicious menu options that will keep you coming back for more. Their cinnamon scroll pancakes have gained attention all over the city so we’d definitely recommend giving these a try.

3. Ardross Street Cafe

Ardross Street Cafe as the name suggests is also located on Applecross’ famous cafe strip street.

Waste away your weekend under the beautiful jacaranda trees that Applecross is so famous for whilst eating from one of the best cafes in the area.

Brioche French toast, avocado salsa corn fritters, and poached eggs on smashed avo toast with bacon are just some of the classic menu items you can choose from.

4. Cioccolato Espresso

If you’re after a place with great food but also a seriously vibey interior we’d have to recommend Cioccolato Espresso.

Hidden down a laneway draped with hanging plants and vines, this cafe is the perfect place to capture some great Insta snaps.

Their menu is also just as banging with blueberry french toast, their ‘smashy toast’ and blackberry, banana, and toasted almond porridge.

5. Artem Coffee

Technically Artem is located in Mount Pleasant, but what difference do a few streets make when you’re on the hunt for the perfect smashed avo?

Artem was once a pop-up coffee shop that gained so much popularity they were eventually persuaded to set up a permanent spot for all of us. Their Mochi Waffles have definitely gained them a cult audience, and for obvious reasons – they’re carby, sweet, and dusted with matcha… need we say more?

6. Small Farms Wholefoods

Small Farms is all about using natural ingredients and organic produce to create food that’s good for you and the planet.

Their slogan ‘Awesome Foods Need No Packaging’ is the backbone of their cafe, and needless to say their food is indeed awesome. Coffee, bagels, smoothie bowls, and croissants are their jam. So next time you’re looking for a feel-good breakfast spot look no further than this hidden gem.

7. Steam Lab Coffee & Tea Specialist

Last but definitely not least on the best cafes in Applecross list is Stream Lab Coffee & Tea.

They have been whipping up some of the best breakfast and lunch options in Applecross for years. Hidden behind the hustle and bustle of Canning Highway in the beautiful Jacaranda-lined streets this small but mighty cafe has got to be on your hit list of perfect brunch spots for the weekend.
