With blends specific to milk-based or black coffees,
Bench is serious about its beans. It’s pretty minimal in
terms of its decor, but who cares? The coffee, and the
citrus slice have won our hearts.
191/471 Hay Street, East Perth
A combination of a coffee house, lunch spot and small
bar, Cheeky Sparrow wears its three hats well. Warning:
it’s dangerously easy to upgrade from an espresso to an
317 Murray Street, Perth (access via Wolf Lane)
LOWDOWN ESPRESSO BAR
Even when it’s packed, the bearded baristas always have
time to shoot you a friendly smile. Lowdown draws huge
morning crowds, so be prepared to wait.
16a Cloisters Arcade, 865 Hay Street, Perth
Owned by a father and son team, Mo Espresso operates
with an understated fit-out and Tom Selleck-themed
seating (hence the name). Be sure to try their roast beef,
feta and beetroot relish toastie.
Trinity Arcade, 72 St Georges Terrace, Perth
PONY EXPRESS O
The only complaint we have with this stable-turned-espresso
bar is that there’s little more than coffee on offer. Luckily
the cafe has a BYOF (bring your own food) attitude.
21 Mayfair Street, West Perth
STANDING ROOM ONLY
A small space with a big machine, Standing Room Only
offers a relief for the CBD’s constant influx of suits. With
coffee available via five different brewing methods, the only
question you should be asking is, which one today?
Shop 7, Piccadilly Arcade, Perth
RISTRETTO WALL COFFEE
One of two metropolitan locations, the Northbridge
chapter is as hole-in-the-wall as it gets, literally operating
out of one. Who knows how they managed to squeeze in
the giant coffee roaster...
53 Aberdeen Street, Northbridge
TEA FOR TU
Tea for Tu, located out the back of a Northbridge
boutique, keeps us coming back for their awesome
butterscotch macaroons and strange-yet-moreish green
tea lattes. And yes, the coffee is as good as the tea.
218a William Street, Northbridge
NORTH OF TOWN
ADDISON & STEELE SPECIALTY COFFEE
Try as you might, ordering just a coffee at Addison &
Steele is impossible. We’re suckers for the Mexican
bagel topped with pico de gallo and the other-worldly
jalapeño cream cheese.
1/448 Fitzgerald Street, North Perth
Hip Bossman Coffee has raised the bar of what espresso
should be in Mt Lawley. Order a long (Fleetwood) mac
and don’t skimp on their Greek pastries, they may be hard
to pronounce, but they’re easy to inhale.
Shop 3, 669 Beaufort Street, Mt Lawley
The folks at Humblebee are unapologetic about their
purist approach: there’s no soy, no skinny and no decaf.
But it’s not without reason; their house-roasted brew
tastes better that way, especially alongside one of their
addictive caramel mini-donuts.
77 Coogee Street, Mt Hawthorn
MILK AND PAPER
Dried flowers, shabby-chic furniture, a case filled with
croissants, baguettes and macarons, and the heady scent
of fresh Two Seasons coffee – stepping into Milk and
Paper transports you straight to a kitchen in Provence.
3/80 Scarborough Beach Road, Scarborough
Set inside the shared office/ DIY classroom/gift shop
that is Studio Bomba, Dapper Jack is a magnet for
coffee-loving, Etsy-addicted creative types. We adore
the locally made crumpets from Mr Drummond’s Foods.
324 Oxford Street, Leederville
Tea For Tu.
The Cheeky Sparrow.
Ristretto Wall Coffee.
