The northern beaches of Perth are pretty stunning, but where can you grab a coffee or brunch after your dip at Sorrento? Here are just a few of our faves around Sorrento, Hillarys, Marmion and Duncraig:
Open for breakfast and lunch, the Lot One kitchen may be small in size, but it’s big on flavour – as well as community spirit. With some high quality eating and drinking on offer, you can pop by for an afternoon spritz or a couple of zucchini and smoked salmon fritters, and soak up the friendly vibes.
46 Angove Drive, Hillarys
The Little Bay
The Little Bay really is pretty-as-a-picture. Whether you’re an aspiring insta influencer or simply want a good view with your brunch, this ultra-aesthetic café lives up to its good looks. While you can still get your classics like big breakfast and eggs benny, the menu ups the ante with breakfast gnocchi and Turkish eggs… which would go really well with a Bloody Mary, just saying.
33 West Coast Drive, Watermans Bay
Little h have become iconic over the years for their brunch offerings – and it’s with good reason. As well as modern classics like avo toast and eggs benny, you can also get some enticing twists on nostalgic favourites, like their brekkie bubble and squeak.
34 Marri Road, Duncraig
Perhaps you’re after something that’s a bit more on-the-go? Step out of the water at Sorrento and you’ll basically be at Finn’s – an unpretentious takeaway nook sorting you out for your post-swim coffees (and maybe a cheeky bacon and egg roll).
189 West Coast Drive, Sorrento Beach
A must-visit if you’re fangin’ for a coffee at Hillarys, Alleycats is dishing up espressos just as good as their views across the marina. As well as some sweet treats on offer, we can’t resist any opportunity for one of their bagels. Make sure to bring your furry friends, too!

The cute-as-a-button Village Coffee is tucked away in the Marmion Village Shopping Centre – but it’s worth going out of your way for their ace coffee (and welcoming staff!). Head there with an empty stomach and take advantage of their nifty, wallet-friendly $10 avo toast and coffee deal.
Shop 1A, 19 Sheppard Way, Marmion
