Enjoy smooth coffee and hearty breakfast beachside in Cottesloe

Ah, Cottesloe.

One of our absolute faves when it comes to laidback, beachy vibes and unbeatable coastal views- there’s a reason it’s one of the most popular beaches in Perth.

To top it all off, they’ve got some killer cafes dotted about where you can get your fresh morning fix as you soak in the salty breeze and sunshine.

Think fresh and organic, sweet cinnamon scrolls, 10/10 coffee hits and colourful Asian fusion dishes.

Here are the best cafes in Cottesloe.


Fresh, healthy eats in the streets of Cott, the iconic Daisies is just waiting for you to dig in. 

From humble origins as a corner delicatessen to one of Perth’s fave corner cafes, these guys know what they’re doing. It’s the ultimate laidback (doggo friendly) spot to soak up some sunshine under the pine trees as you get your hands on baked goods, burgers and their famous smashed avo toast with feta, chilli dukkah and house-made chilli jam.

Il Lido

Get ready for a carb overload, because Il Lido is serving up some insanely good Italian eats while overlooking the ocean. 

They’re passionate about everything pasta, wine, coffee and cheese, which is great because so are we! Serving up breakfast, lunch and dinner, their dishes are absolutely magnifico- we can’t get enough. They also have a banging wine list and tasty cocktails for a sunset sip.

North Street Store

If you haven’t jumped on the craze of North Street Store cinnamon scrolls then boy are you missing out. 

Fluffy, sweet and sticky, the cinny scrolls here are famous in Perth for good reason. They also do a mean cup of coffee, and you can grab one of their fresh loaves of bread to go or help yourself to their cabinet of rolls and sweets plus fresh-made toasties and burgers. Technically not a ‘cafe’, but we’re counting it because it’s that good.

A local hotspot, Vans has been serving up an eclectic menu and providing a caffeine fix for the people of Cottesloe for many years. 

The modern, bright atmosphere will make you feel right at home as you choose from blue swimmer crab cakes, buttermilk pancakes, pan-fried gnocchi, san choy bao or a vans fry up with fried bacon, eggs and hashbrowns.

Little Sup Cafe

For surfy vibes and delicious coffee, Little Sup is your guy. 

The perfect beachside cafe to roll on into after a salty early morning swim, they open their doors from 6am every day so all you early birds can start your day off right. Their smooth brew will go down a treat topped off with homemade pastries and muffins while you chill out with the locals catching a wave or two. 

Mel & Co Kitchen

A unique breakfast stop, Mel & Co Kitchen is really defining the term ‘hearty food’ with their colourful Asian fusion dishes. 

It’s hard to pick our faves here but some must-tries include the rendang nachos, shakshuka with chorizo, truffle teriyaki beef and rendang potato rosti. You won’t leave here unsatisfied, that’s for sure.

Nature’s Harvest- Bee Leaf Cafe

An exciting discovery for us health freaks, vegans and vegos- Nature’s Harvest is an organic food store serving up hearty fresh meals from their Bee Leaf Cafe

Kickstart your day with a fresh smoothie or super latte and nourishing bowls, salads and organic big breakfasts. They also do a heap of vegan and gluten-free sweet options, including a cookie ice cream sandwich. 

Eric Chamberlain

Joining the lineup of expert coffee makers in Cott, Eric Chamberlain is a sweet little stop for some breakfast delights and a cuppa. 

The outside patio is dog-friendly so you can perch up after a morning walk and try out their homemade nasi goreng or smashed avo on organic sourdough. Open bright and early from 6:30am.

While we’re on the topic of amazing coffee, we’ve got to give Cimbalino a mention.

Sitting on Napoleon Street, they do up a pretty good caffeine fix while you dig into their breakfast menu with options like bruschetta and french toast, or spice it up with the huevos rancheros- spicy tomato sauce, chorizo, baked egg, Persian feta and ciabatta.

John Street Cafe

Adding a pop of blue to the streets of Cottesloe, John Street Cafe is a breezy, colourful little stop under the pines. 

They do all-day breakfast and light lunch, with a simple but tasty menu. The prosciutto poached eggs and benedict with their famous hollandaise sauce is our pick for your visit.
