Much like our list of our favourite new restaurants and bars, the start of the year really got away from us – but we maintain that it’s still better late than never! The first half of the year (close enough, okay!) has been jam-packed with non-stop openings – and we’ve got a few for you to add to your list to try.

Hunter Bread

Bicton Central has levelled up with a couple of new additions this year – including the very charming Hunter Bread. We had a chat to them shortly after they opened (you can check it out HERE), but in short: these loaves are set to become your dinner party, Sunday lunch, everyday staple.

Hinata Café

Absolutely adorable. That’s the first thing that comes to mind stepping into Fremantle’s Hinata Café. The plant-filled, rustic space serves up cosy Japanese home-style plates – with the main star their monthly rotating brunch sets: a plate of nourishing goodness straight out of a Studio Ghibli film.

In Good Hands

In Good Hands may be one of the newer kids on the block, but we reckon it holds its own against some of Perth’s heaviest hitters. House milky brews are made with Community Coffee Co beans, plus a rotating roster of Double DoubleTwin Peaks and Daylight Coffee Roasters for batch brews and espresso. Owner Oli’s mum is behind much of the food on offer, as well as utilising cult baker Everyday Bread for cabinet goodies. While their offerings are straightforward, you really do feel like you’re In Good Hands.

Continental Co.

Only opening in March, Continental Co. quickly made a big impression. The hole in the wall spot keeps things super simple with just a couple of options available to takeaway, but they manage to cover all the bases: a classic conti, an ajvar-laced veggie version, and a crumbed chicken cutlet to really mix things up.

Good Things Fremantle

Good Things was already a firm favourite for the Mossie Park massive, so news they were venturing south was welcomed with gusto. Having taken over the former Attic site on Bannister Street, you can expect some of the café’s most popular menu items (like their signature chicken and hotcakes or chilli scramble), now in that iconic Brian Klopper building.

Deli’s Continental

One of the most hyped up openings of the year, you may have to get up early to enjoy one of these cult-favourite contis. Deli’s take their rolls seriously, with house-made panini and loaded with high quality ingredients, it’s no wonder their pop up (and now, new store!) caused such a fuss, selling out on the reg.

Hop Café

Sweet tooths and coffee fiends are well looked after with this new addition. Hop Café has quickly been making fans with their cellar-door style coffee tastings, featuring a rotating roster of local roasters, as well as their decadent dessert pairings that are all made in-house.

Yours Truly

When you’re flying down Hay Street, it’s worth a pit stop at Yours Truly. This Subi coffee window is pumping out some of the best coffees in the area, plus bagels and baked treats to keep you fuelled for the day.

Little French Nest

Get a petit taste of Paris at Little French Nest. The charming café opened at the start of the year, and has earned legions of fans already with its decadent crêpes, croque monsieurs, home baked pastries and other French treats that will have you saying “ooh la la!” in no time.

Hank’s Corner Café

Taking over a corner of a motorcycle repair shop, Hank’s has to take the cake for perhaps our favourite revitalisation of an under-utilised space. The delightful coffee window and café is perched happily on the corner of Scarborough Beach Road, keeping locals fuelled with delicious coffee and bites like the ooey, gooey, decadent Welsh rarebit.

La Mortazza

La Mortazza is well worth venturing further up Fitzgerald Street – you’ll be well-rewarded with a selection of Italian treats that would put any nonna to shame. Fluffy bomba filled with pistachio or Biscoff, decadent tubs of tiramisu and ultra-crisp cannoli filled with creamy ricotta (and make sure to get an espresso on the side). For savoury-lovers, there’s plenty on offer, from sumptuous pastas to cheeky paninis.

Whisked the Right Wei

Whisked the Right Wei is bringing some picture-perfect pastries to the ‘burbs, from a pastry chef mentored by the venerable late Emmanuel Mollois. You can expect to find classic Parisian treats – think flakey, buttery croissants, dainty cakes and some pretty hard to resist palmiers – many of which utilise Mollois’ recipes with pastry chef Deric Fong’s own twist. We’re particularly besotted by the amazingly flakey mille feuille, burnt Basque cheesecake topped with Chantilly cream and the intensely chocolatey, hazelnutty gianduja.

We’ve focused mainly on the metro area for this roundup, but of course we had to include Alberta’s. One of the most buzzed about openings, in no small part because the eatery is helmed by two Noma alumni – Kirsty Marchant and Ben Ing. While the dedication to quality and produce remains, they’ve taken on a much more cosy, accessible approach to this venue: open for four days a week from 8AM ’til 12, you can expect to find excellent coffee, home-baked delights and nourishing broths. The simplicity practically feels revolutionary.
