Henry On Eighth
Nothing says cute little cafe we must visit quite like vintage, quirky interior complete with exposed brick.

Food-wise, they’ve got the traditional pub grub covered with burgers etc, or you can go something a bit lighter and get your hands on their beef brisket tacos.

Chapels On Whatley
Chapels On Whatley is an eclectic Asian-inspired cafe that doubles into a fine tea and Asian antique shop.

Garden Cafe On Guildford
The perfect joint for a lazy Sunday feed, Garden Cafe On Guildford is an oasis of home-made food and gourmet coffee.
The secret garden corner cafe dishes up tasty lunch, breakfast and sweet treats in a simple and relaxing setting. We’re a big fan of their signature burgers (which include a smokey beef, buttermilk chicken and haloumi) that you can enjoy on their burger night every Friday and Saturday with BYO.
Sherbet Cafe & Bakeshop
Handcrafted pastries and cakes baked fresh every day? Yes please!
Sherbet Cafe & Bakeshop is inspired by the cupcake bakeries of New York City, and oh boy do the cupcakes know how to steal the show here. Fluffy and topped with soft icing in a range of flavours they practically melt in your mouth.
You also have to try their delightful cakes, either by the slice or as a whole cake (no judgments from us).
Smoult’s Larder is a corner store and cafe where you can grab a breakfast bite and stock up on some fresh take home eats.
They’ve got a whole range of stuff with pies, hot and cold cut meats, sandwiches, cakes, tarts- you name it!
Our recommendation? You can’t go past trying one of their amazing salads- they’re totally delicious and the perfect healthy lunch option.
This super popular local cafe is always busy serving up all-day breakfast, smooth blended cuppas and cakes.
Steam Haus is doggo friendly (big plus) and adored by families or mums and bubs dropping in due to their kid-friendly environment and toy room. The meals are simple and tasty, with things like mushroom bruschetta, eggs benny and Spanish omelettes.
M Coffee is the definition of hidden gem.
If you’re after good coffee in Maylands, you’ve found it. This bright little nook is just down Lyric Lane, roasting killer cups of coffee served up by super friendly staff.
