Dry July is over, baby! There’s no judgement here – we’ve all woken up a bit worse for wear every now and then. If your head is sore and you’re feeling a big fragile, stop in for a decadent bite at one of these Perth spots.
The addition of Eggspot should come as a surprise to absolutely no one, with their Freo market stall earning them legions of fans. After opening their North Perth store last year, it’s even easier to get your hands on their hangover-busting brekkie burgers: filled with soft and tender scrambled eggs nestled in golden, toasted brioche, with gooey melted cheese, crispy hash browns and even fried chicken? You may need a nap afterwards, but that’s what the weekends are for, right?
40/10 Angove Street, North Perth
Y9, Fremantle Markets, South Terrace & Henderson Street, Fremantle
We may have it on good authority (ahem) that soaking up the sunshine and tucking into Servo’s cheeseburger borek is a surefire way to ward off a hangover – or at least make it a little bit more bearable. Merging the best of both worlds, seared beef, mustard, gooey smoked cheese, gherkins and onions are wrapped in the crispiest, golden brik pastry. Dip it in that spicy aioli and try not to think about any bad decisions from the night before – eating this is certainly a good one.
9 Electric Lane, Leederville
Sometimes, when you’re Hung-dog Millionaire, the greatest gift you can be given is to not have to make a decision. Staring down a menu that’s a mile long, trying to decide between a hundred different combinations of eggs-and-something? No thanks! Which is just one reason why Peggy’s is a no-brainer for us when we’re feeling the weight of last night’s decisions: sausage muffin, coffee, hash brown, twelve bucks. Yes.
35 Market Street, Fremantle
Ok, this one is only relevant for Saturdays – but if you find yourself feeling worse for wear after a big Friday on the town, you’ll thank us. Popping up every Saturday morning at local tip top coffee roaster Twin Peaks, there’s a good reason Dank Pizza has become such a cult favourite. A hot cuppa and one of these puffy-crusted bad boys, topped with sausage, spring onion and a fiery chilli oil? You’ll feel right as rain in no time.
Twin Peaks Coffee Roasters, 11/28 Rudloc Road, Morley
This brunch favourite of ours is a reliable go-to, whether or not you’re dealing with the aftermath of a big night. When it comes to hangover-busting, Good Things has plenty of options, but we gravitate towards the fan-favourite chilli scramble – the eggs will comfort you while the hint of spice will wake you up. Beneath the golden mound of eggs, a flaky roti is your well-deserved reward. And look, if all else fails, they’ve also got pancakes with fried chicken – which is a more than adequate runner up for us.

Not that we’re bad influences, but what’s better than a bit of hair of the dog to get you through a hungover morning? Mack Daddy’s is firing on all cylinders with their Bottomless Pizza Brunches. You’ll have to book in advance, so plan accordingly, but your Sunday will be made all that much better by endless New York-style slices and free-flowing Bloody Marys – plus an espresso martini or two to perk you up.
560 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley
Speaking of Bloody Marys… Shorehouse do a bloody good one. Five, in fact! As well as their classic breakfast menu, (best enjoyed soaking up the sun, taking in the salty sea air) they’ve got a Bloody Mary to suit everyone – from a classic vodka option with just a hint of spice, all the way up to a Howling Mary: made with jalapeño vodka, death sauce, habanero vinegar and chilli salt, it’ll blaze through any hangover faster than you can say “good morning”. Paired with a rejuvenating, cleansing dip in the ocean? You’re born anew into the world, as fresh as a daisy.
278 Marine Parade, Swanbourne
Brother of Mine
We’ll reiterate, we’re not bad influences. But a breakfast cocktail goes a long way to earning our affection, and Brother of Mine are no slouches in that department. Pair their decadent croque madame with an espresso martini, BBQ Mary, Fireball-laden breakfast sour or a classic mimosa. What else is there to say, except to get there ASAP?
10/61 Makybe Drive, Baldivis
Authentic Bites Dumpling House
Given the popularity of this place and the lines out the front – you’re gonna have to be a little strategic to avoid too much public-facing in your dishevelled, hungover state. You’re in luck though, because you can order Authentic Bites online, get your pickup time, skip ahead of the cue waiting to dine in and just grab and go! Food-wise the xiao long bao, spicy pork and prawn wontons, boiled pork dumplings, pan fried chicken and pork dumplings… the list goes on. And while it may not fully cure your hungover, it will definitely put you in a food coma so you can pass out and wake up feeling better about all (or most) recent decisions.
