Village charm meets urban sophistication in North
Perth. Four locals clue us in on their favourite things
about living and working there.
EATOscar Boyne is the manager of small bar The Old Laundry.
METRIO & CO | Every second cafe does a smashed avocado, but Metrio’s, with
lemon-infused feta and a balsamic reduction, is a bit special. The poached eggs
make it substantial enough for a hangover cure.
SAOWANEE’S PLACE | This is a cheerful little place just down from the busy part of
Fitzgerald Street. It’s unassuming, but definitely more than just your typical neighbourhood
restaurant. The food is some of the best Thai I’ve had in Perth. Try the red duck curry or
the pad see ew.
STONES PIZZA | It’s a lot of fun getting pizza from Stones – they always have some
weird pizza-of-the-week special, and even the normal pizzas have stacks of interesting
ingredients. It’s a little pricy, but definitely worth it for the quality of the food – no
tinned pineapple here, only fresh.
HOBART DELI | It gets pretty busy, but there’s good reason – Hobart
Deli always serves up solid brunch options, and the coffee is
good, too. You might have to wait a while for a table, but it’ll
be worth it.
ENGINE ROOM ESPRESSO | These guys get a mention
for the brownies they’ve just started making – delicious,
fudgy treats that go perfectly with a coffee (which is
MILKD | It’s been around for eons, and is kicking it.
Milkd might have the best chilli beans in Perth. Their
menu changes every three months but, luckily, those
beans have been sticking around.
MAURIZIO RESTAURANT | A good option for date
night, this place always serves tasty Italian food, and
they’ve got a good range of Italian wines, too.
NO4 BLAKE STREET | Save yourself for the dego here
– s ure, the bar food is delicious, but the fine dining takes
it to a new level. It’s clever, seasonal French food, and it’s
cheaper than you’d think!
DOJane Coffey owns boutique Future Shelter with her husband, Adam.
OPEN MIC AT THE ROSEMOUNT | There are some really talented young singers playing
every Tuesday, and the recent reno makes it a great place to hang out.
COMMUNITY GARDEN | Visit the community garden to see what amazing produce is
being grown there, volunteer for a spot of weeding, and have a peek through the windows
of the Men’s Shed. The men (and women!) are always making local street furniture and
fixing up chairs. They also have the most beautiful garden gate.
CRAFT BOUND | Head to the North Perth Town Hall to learn a new craft – there’s
macramé, knitting, jewellery-making and more.
RELAXING IN HYDE PARK | A perfect place to relax during the summer or winter.
The cycle path from the city to North Perth takes you straight through, and it’s full
of shady trees in the summer months. In the winter, you can take the kids for a walk
around the lake to collect leaves.
SWIM AT BEATTY PARK | Brush up on your technique or let the kids learn to swim
from an early age at the excellent swim school here. There’s also an excellent creche
if you fancy an exercise class.
ROSEMOUNT BOWL | The ten-pin bowling here has a great retro vibe – and hot chips –
so it’s the perfect fun party location for young and old. The retro lighting makes you look
like you’re a bowling champion.
