Cafes and Coffee Shops in Perth


Viaje Coffee

This spot is simple yet perfectly elegant. Viaje Coffee focuses on specialty cups of coffee alongside Korean-style street toasties that are absolutely delicious. When you set your eyes upon this spot, you will immediately be drawn in by the bright ambience.

However, it is the smooth and creamy coffee that will keep you there. The team here also freshly grinds their decaf if that is more of your style.

Millpoint Caffe Bookshop

Is there really anything better than coffee in a bookstore? The Millpoint Caffe Bookshop is in a lovely purple building that you simply can’t miss. Based on Mill Point Road, enter this location and take a seat amongst the bookshelves.

While you’re there, sip on a coffee and get entirely in the books of the pages. You can even enjoy a cake on the side if you’re looking for something sweet!

Our Ruby Girl

Our Ruby Girl is a super cool little gem just a hop, skip, and a step outside of South Perth. This spot is well-loved as it promotes both sustainable and ethical practices making it a winner in the eyes of many. This café is dedicated to a zero-waste environment and uses only the best local produce.

Better yet, this spot is an Equal Opportunity Employer and hires people with a disability. The interior of this location boasts local, colourful Aussie flora and warm woods. The seasonal menu is full of goodies which makes it even harder to pick something.

We definitely recommend dishes such as house-cured salmon, juniper berry salsa, pan-fried gnocchi, and focaccia with native thyme.

If you spot a free seat, run, don’t walk, because it won’t be free for long! Make sure you try out the coffee while you’re here as it is just insanely good. You will also love how friendly the service is.
