If you’re not a frequent visitor to the City of Joondalup — or, even if you are — it can be hard to keep up with what’s happening in the area’s burgeoning culinary scene. Well, it’s an issue no longer. The recently launched Instagram page @Uptown.Joondalup is where you can find the best eateries and more in just a simple scroll. The account is full of inspiration on where to eat, what to do, and what to see in the northern suburbs, so follow along to be in the know. 

To celebrate the launch of the account, we’re sharing the best places to get breakfast in the City of Joondalup to kickstart your next day out.

Voyage Kitchen, Sorrento

Voyage Kitchen should be at the top of the list for anyone craving a savoury bite in the morning. The menu leans heavily into umami, with plenty of typical and not-so-typical breakfast meals — Japanese miso mushrooms, a breakfast steak, salmon gravlax, and a breakfast pizza being just a few of your many options. That’s not to say that there’s nothing for the sweet tooth, though, with buttermilk pancakes, an acai bowl, and homemade banana bread there to tempt you. 

The broad menu is just one of the drawcards at Voyage, with Hillarys Boat Harbour’s many boutique stores and adventure experiences just one kilometre down the road. Why not make a day of it and walk off your big breakfast to the sound of waves crashing against the shore?

76 Steps, Sorrento 

Want to give the breakfast pizza and miso mushrooms a pass, tucking into a traditional and budget-friendly meal instead? Consider stopping in at 76 Steps, directly across the road from the sandy shores of Sorrento Beach. It’s the in-house restaurant at Quality Resort Sorrento Beach and is open to the general public for breakfast seven days a week. For $20.00, you can grab yourself ‘The Classic’, a full English breakfast, or, for $16.00, you can enjoy a continental buffet breakfast. Sounds like a bargain either way. 

Lot One Kitchen, Hillarys

Sit back and enjoy Hillarys’ relaxed lifestyle at Lot One Kitchen. The day starts early here, with eggs your way, a breakfast pavlova, or house crumpets served from 6:30 am. Late risers can still get their fix of breakfast foods, as the brunch menu doesn’t finish until 2:30 pm each day. Prefer lunch over brunch? They’ve got that covered, too, with salads, pasta, risotto, and burgers available for order from 11:00 am. 

Before settling in for a late breakfast, head to the Whitfords Nodes Health and Wellbeing Hub across the road. It’s a great spot to start your morning and fit in a pre-feed workout. At the Wellbeing Hub, you’ll find a 145-step stairway that’ll get the heart pounding and legs burning as you race to the top. Up there, you’ll be met with panoramic views of the harbour and coastline and a good dose of the salty morning air. 

Little H, Duncraig

Tucked away in the coastal neighbourhood of Duncraig, you’ll find Little H. From the same people behind the popular eateries, The Little Bay (Watermans Bay) and Meelup Farmhouse (Naturaliste), Little H well and truly lives up to all expectations. 

For those of you who eat with your eyes, you’ll want the cafe’s signature pavlova pancakes. Not only are they extremely Instagramable, but the crisp meringue, creamy mascarpone, and tangy passionfruit syrup come together in perfect harmony on your palate. Equally as aesthetic but a whole other foodie experience is the southern fried chicken and smashed avocado benedict. It’s the most loaded benedict we’ve ever laid eyes on.

If the weather allows for it, we recommend sitting outside on the fresh white alfresco, where you can soak up some sun and watch the world go by.

Swell Mullaloo Beach, Mullaloo

Swell Mullaloo Beach sits only a few metres from the soft, white sand of Mullaloo’s shore, affording it one of the best breakfast views in the area. The ocean at this coastal destination is calm all year round, making it a favourite amongst the northern suburbs’ community, especially in summer. When at Swell, sit back, enjoy the scenery (and food), and — if you’re feeling cheeky — indulge in a breakfast cocktail. There’s a great menu of morning libations, but it’s the decadent Baileys Iced Coffee that has us won over. A little pre or post-breakfast stroll along what is arguably Perth’s most picturesque coastal path will make it completely guilt-free. 

Gipsy Boy, Joondalup

In the backstreets of Joondalup, near Yellagonga Regional Park, you’ll find Gipsy Boy, a place where breakfast, quality coffee, and fashion meet. Run by two sisters, the cafe has grown into more than just a great coffee shop, stocking a range of clothing and giftware to peruse while the barista is working on your beverage. Order your brew as a takeaway, grab one of the six bagels on the menu, and make a beeline for the nearby Lake Joondalup Circuit which travels for 16km around Lake Joondalup and through some picturesque natural areas.

Too Good N Co, Joondalup

If it’s payday and you’re in the mood for a ‘shop ‘til you drop’ moment, then Too Good n Co is calling you. It’s just 700 metres down the road from Lakeside Joondalup Shopping City — a convenient pit stop before a big day wandering the stores. Here you’ll find carrot cakes just as pleasing to the eye as they are to the stomach, a selection of freshly made rolls, wraps, and paninis in the cabinet, and much, much more. 

Sistas Burns Beach, Iluka 

Fun fact: Sistas Burns Beach is the first cafe in Australia to have a stand-alone dog-friendly menu. It’s the ‘pawfect’ beachside breakfast spot for the whole family, four-legged members and all. The human menu is as tasty as it is diverse, with everything from Jaffa pancakes to pork belly hashbrowns and fluffy bao buns. And, of course, the menu for man’s best friend – the ’Doggy Num Yums’ –  has all the pooch-friendly options; think ice cream sundaes, chicken and bacon strips, and even a doggy beer from Brewdogs Brewhouse.
