A Selection Of Perth’s Most Scenic Brunch Spots
Words By Alexandra Casey.
Perth is known by many as the most isolated capital in the world, famous for its crystal-clear oceans, quokkas and Heath Ledger. The island on an island isn’t short on scenic spots for brunch, here are a few of our favourites to add to your dining bucket list.
Bib & Tucker
Perched on the picturesque Leighton Beach, above the Fremantle Surf Lifesaving Club is Bib & Tucker. Pop in for brunch after a morning dip and enjoy the sunshine on the outdoor deck. The menu is an echo of seasonal, local and sustainably grown fresh ingredients and the drinks are sure to have you talking. With offerings of buttermilk pancakes, Mexican baked eggs, Japanese sweetcorn fritters, avocado toast, and eggs and bacon benedict, there’s loads to choose from for all dietary requirements.

Matilda Bay Restaurant
Located on the edge of Matilda Bay in Crawley, you’ll be treated to breathtaking views of the city skyline and soothed by the sounds of the Swan at Matilda Bay Restaurant. Brunch at the Bay boasts a sophisticated menu inspired by the sea – think prawn cutlets with tomato salsa, fish tacos with grilled corn, pico de gallo and avocado and grilled snapper with farro grains and beurre blanc. If you prefer the traditional brunch of poached eggs and smashed avo, don’t worry, they do that too! You can also opt to make it bottomless; two hours of bottomless Prosecco, Mimosa and Bloody Marys is $35 per person and two hours of bottomless champagne is $65 per person.

We’re partial to a coastal view – especially when it’s panoramic over Trigg Beach – and we know you are too. The coastline of soft snowy sand and aqua waters is known as one of Perth’s most popular surfing beaches, popular with locals and visitors alike. Whether you’re down for a croissant, fig and fennel toast, waffles with raspberries and berry curd, a smoked salmon omelette or the iconic Island breakfast, there’s something sure to tickle your fancy at Island Market. And while you’re at it, why not pair bunch with a morning cocktail? The Cheeky Bellini, Bubbly Colada or Queen Mary will give your morning ritual that extra sparkle you’re looking for.
364 West Coast Drive, Trigg
For spectacular views of the Swan River, Perth city skyline and Darling Ranges, Kings Park is the place to be. The Botanic Garden is one of the world’s largest and most beautiful inner-city parks, home to 3,000 species of unique flora, bush walk trails and immaculate gardens. And while Zamia Café is situated on the Western side, the views of the bushland, lake and the epic Lycopod Island are a fun, casual and picturesque setting with a menu boasting the adored acai bowl, harvest bowl, mushroom crepes, eggs benedict and honey toasted hazelnut and fruit granola. It’s the perfect place for couples, friends and families too! The kids can let loose and roam free with the endless space and playgrounds galore.
50 May Drive, West Perth
The Little Bay
The Little Bay oozes all things coastal luxe, with a sensational view that goes down a treat with the all-day brunch. Expect Matcha pancakes with mango compote and burnt white chocolate, or for those who prefer something savoury, the crispy gnocchi with rocket pesto and ricotta is a favourite. Or maybe sweet potato, corn and haloumi fritter or The Big Bay breakfast? If you’re searching for somewhere aesthetic, look no further.
33 West Coast Drive, Waterman’s Bay
Settled on the Mends Street jetty, against the backdrop of the spectacular Perth city skyline is a little restaurant known as Mister Walker. Once you’ve completed your morning exercise, why not take to the jetty for your soy chai and brunch. Enjoy eggs how you like them, homemade muesli, waffles with berry compote, a brown rice breakfast bowl, smoked salmon bruschetta or portobello mushroom filled with chickpeas, cauliflower, capsicum and cumin in a destination that’s well worth writing home about.
80 South Perth Esplanade, South Perth
Perched on the doorstep of the Indian Ocean, a hop, skip and jump north from Cottesloe Beach, The Shorehouse is all about good vibes and flavour. With their iconic Insta-worthy yellow and white striped umbrellas, groovy white furniture and spectacular seaside views, you’ll be getting more than just a good profile pic. Indulge in their offerings of homemade granola and rhubarb compote, smashed pumpkin toast with cherry tomatoes, goat’s curd and poached eggs or Belgian waffles with blueberries, banana and cumin caramel.
