Sitting on the outskirts of the Perth CBD lies North Perth, which boasts a truly vibrant cafe culture drawing in locals far and wide (including southsiders like me). If brunch is constantly your radar and you’re ready to get acquainted with some new tastes, let North Perth provide you with the foodie’s ultimate dream.
Tucked away on Angove Street, Stomp Coffee is the perfect morning-after cure following a night out. Above all, their selection of toasties take the spotlight. Their Vegorama is the perfect mix of zucchini, pumpkin, goat’s cheese and mozzarella – and trust me, it is a toastie to be reckoned with. With the adjoining wonders of Angove Street Collective and a hefty dose of dog-spotting available, you can’t go past this garden-style corner establishment.

Possibly the most charming of the lot, Satchmo is a hidden treasure. Fitted out with decor reminiscent of a Wes Anderson film set, this cute little cafe serves up unique Jewish and New Orleans flavours, along with some of the best bagels in Perth. One simple glance of their menu is quick to reveal this as their specialty; we recommend The Pickled Beef and The Mississippi Special for fried chicken lovers. Even when packed out, this highly aesthetic spot still holds a greatly relaxing atmosphere.
