The best places to eat and drink around West Leederville

Home >Best of WA >The best places to eat and drink around West Leederville

We haven’t updated our little West Leedy neighbourhood guide for a couple of years and boy has so much changed!

Outside of the great places along Railway Parade there’s a brand new little hub right in the middle of the little business district that’s poppin’ with some great burger and beer joints, plus loads more. Get the skinny below:


West Leederville’s Aliment Cafe has made way for Breadboy: a Japanese-inspired sandwich joint that nods towards global flavours. The early hours feature a more limited, crowd-pleasing breakfast menu – think bacon and egg sandos or smashed avo – but we’re heading in for the lunch menu, which features an enticing roster of shokupan sandos: from classic chicken katsu to a prawn katsu patty studded with corn, or a wagyu menchi (mince) katsu. Toasties touch upon a range of cuisines, including a Cubano, hummus and roast veg number or humble tuna with pesto.

Bad Love Burger Co.

The legends behind beloved Perth pop-up Smashburger BBQ turned the good will from that pop-up into the Bad Love Burger Co. in West Leederville, and haven’t looked back since. Big, juicy, smashed patties + booze is a winning combo as far as any sane person is concerned, but hurry down – people have already caught on and the place is heaving.

The Exchange Brewing Co.

The Exchange Brewing Co. is a bit of a jack-of-all trades within the West Leedy business hub we mentioned at the start of the article. Right across the road from Bad Love, they’re a cafe that slings good coffee and breakfasts in the morning, before turning into a nice little lunch and dinner spot later in the day. As you may have guessed they’ve also got their own craft brewery on site with a few nice drops – it makes for a chill little beer spot after work.

Nowhereman Brewing

For something a little more upbeat head down the road to the buzzy little warehouse that holds Nowhereman Brewing for some delicious food and a dangerous selection of Nowhereman craft brews on tap. Their pub-style fare has a few twists on some signature favourites, and there’s always something going on at Nowhereman, including quiz nights, new brew drops and heaps more.

Mary Street Bakery

This one seems like a bit of an obvious choice, but good old reliable Mary Street can’t go without a mention. You know what you’re getting, but what you’re getting is so good! West Leederville is one of our favourite locations of the ubiquitous Perth bakery.

Myrtle Ivy

Across the road from Mary Street, super cute Myrtle Ivy is serving up ace coffee out of their hole in the wall cafe. With a focus on nutritious feeds made out of their teeny tiny kitchen – think soul bowls, raw sweet treats and other plant-based goodness – you’ll leave Myrtle Ivy feeling good inside and out.

Since opening a couple of years ago Besk has been a huge hit with locals and visitors from all over town. From the boutique bottleshop (which you can buy from and then drink in the bar), to the rotating selection of beer, wine, spirits and food in the public bar, it’s an uber cool place to hang out that’s always busy – without feeling overcrowded.

Brunch favourite Hylin has gotta be your next Sunday morning destination. Pull up a chair under the trees out the front and take in their lush menu – whether you’re after a quick bagel or their impressive smashed avo. If you’re there later in the day, the bar out the back (appropriately called…Back Bar) is a leafy oasis with great bar eats, and a nifty $10 burger deal on Thursdays.

Pearth Organic Kitchen

Pearth is all about providing nutritious choices no matter your dietary need – so whether you’re gluten intolerant, vegetarian, vegan or an omnivore, you’ll find something wholesome to fill your tummy. Paired with some great coffee, with plenty of milk alternative options, you can’t go wrong.

iLuma Fine Foods

Sweet treat faves iLuma Fine Foods have just finished a fabulous re-fit of their West Leederville and are awaiting all you sweet tooths out there. They specialise in unique and luxurious cakes and desserts, and be warned – there’s a good chance you’ll get seriously hooked after just one visit.

The Wine Thief

The Wine Thief boasts a lovingly curated collection of wine, beer, cider and spirits. This is the perfect spot to pick up something unique – particularly if you’re looking for something beautifully packaged to gift someone special. Make sure to drop into the attached Coffee Thief for a killer coffee if it’s a bit early in the day to crack open the vino.

Piccolo’s Corner

Leafy neighbourhood favourite Piccolo’s Corner is a charming spot whether you’re picking up a takeaway from their window or camping out in their courtyard over some poached eggs. A perfect spot to pat some doggos on a Sunday morning.

JB O’Reilly’s

We’re no strangers to an Irish pub around Perth, but JB O’Reilly’s in West Leedy is right up there with the best of ’em – to be sure to be sure. A rambunctious little spot to enjoy the craic with mates and some live music on the weekend or important pub lunch meetings (washed down with a Guinness of course), it’s a ripper.
