With leafy heritage streets, charming cafés and a plethora of hidden treasures to be found, Subiaco is a prime destination for a whole week of winter wandering.

Read on for the ultimate week-long Subiaco itinerary:


Start your week off with a visit to one of Subi’s long time favourites, Boucla. Located at the tree-lined, southern end of Rokeby Road, dive into yoghurty Turkish eggs or shakshuka – or indulge in a slice of their amazing souffra (that keeps us up at night!) while enjoying a delicious coffee in the cosy surrounds of their Mediterranean-inspired decor. 

Just a few doors down, Swiss patisserie Chez Jean-Claude serves up some of the city’s best pastries. Pick up a pastry for the road, plus one of their always-popular “La Parisienne” baguettes – and head out for a stroll.

While the heavenly houses and tree-lined streets are delightful enough, just around the corner you’ll find the scenic Subiaco Theatre Gardens, with babbling streams, a great nature play space for kids and expansive lawns for lounging – not to mention more caffeination thanks to Hole in the Wall coffee.

And who knows – while you’re wandering through the area, you might stumble across a Giant who got lost on the way to Mandurah…

Whether you’re looking for a brand new wardrobe or to refresh your home’s style, you can find something truly special when you’re shopping in Subi.

Start your day off finding the perfect baby-welcoming gift or treat-yourself-goodie at Spoilt at Subi (we’re eyeing off those Jolie & Deen earrings), then browse the racks of vintage kimonos or ceramics at Japanese Flea Market.

Further along Rokeby Road, vintage treasures await your wardrobe within Lucy in Disguise, or get dinner party-ready with a brand new table setting from Table Culture and some gourmet ingredients from Simon Johnson Providore

Further south you’ll find the stunningly stylish selection of international designers at Emporia, plus the luxurious linen and homewares of the tranquil Plane Tree Farm. 


Wednesdays are jam-packed in Subi! Two of the neighbourhood’s favourite haunts bring the good vibes, with the Subi Hotel‘s weekly Wednesday Quiz Night ready to bamboozle any trivia buffs, plus the beloved Bark‘s Jazz & Shiraz to get you grooving.

Of course these big vibes need big bites to match – and the Subi Hotel will sort you out with their weekly $22 parmi special, while Bark will have you nibbling on their signature Bark Board and sipping a couple of glasses of funky wine –  for just $49 for two.


Stretch your creative muscles with one of Subi’s many workshops and classes. Open by appointment, create your own candle with a custom scent and vessel at Bespoke Blends’ light-filled studio. Bespoke Blends’ owner Jane utilises non-toxic soy wax, lead-free cotton wicks and natural fragrances… or select one of the delightful candles that have been poured into vintage vessels if you’re not feeling quite so creative! 

Soak up some more creativity with a wander down to Walmsley Windows within Walmsley Lane. This sweet laneway runs alongside the French-inspired Bar Amelie, with a row of windows decorated with unique pieces by local artists.

Keep the creativity going with a visit to The Painted Teapot. Select the perfect pre-made ceramic piece from their shelves and let your imagination run wild with your painting! 

Following your morning of creativity, pop across the road to pastry chef Louis Boeglin’s sweet new store – or head to Dilly Dally’s Bar Loiter if you fancy something stronger!

TGIF! Celebrate the end of the week in style – leave the car at home, treat yourself to a plush staycay at Vibe and unwind with some of Subi’s finest tipples! 

Start your evening enjoying a cocktail alongside the Storehouse’s sky-high sunset views, before strolling over to Yiamas for share plates in their picture-perfect, ancient Greek courtyard.

Just seconds away, the very chic Bar Loiter is a tempting option at any time of the day – but on Fridays between 5 and 6, we can’t resist the call of that aperitivo hour spread of cured meats and antipasti.

You’re only seconds away from the Tulum-inspired coastal vibes of La Condesa, so it would practically be a crime to not pop in for a spicy marg or two – or a tequila flight if you’re feeling particularly caliente!

Just a hop, skip and jump down Hay Street and you’ll be perfectly positioned to sip some vinos and tuck into some tantalising tapas in Lums’ lush parklet out the front, watching the world go by.

Mosey a little further east for craft beer and crowd-pleasing eats at Golden West Brewing Co, as well as audaciously delicious Napoletana pizza from Il Locale!


After all that wining and dining, start your Saturday with some wholesome vibes at the Subi Farmers Market. Taking over the grounds of Subi Primary, the markets are chock-a-block with some of WA’s premium artisans, local producers and bustling stalls. Dogspotters take note: this is a favourite hotspot for saying hello to four-legged friends.

Keep the wholesome vibes going with a nourishing smoothie from Be Free Organics, followed by some pampering next door at Olive + July, experts at all things beauty!

Be Free Subiaco

Once you’re feeling super-duper relaxed from all that pampering, take a relaxing stroll over to Subi Continental and soak up the sun from one of those spectacular window seats while sipping on a glass of wine and indulging in an oyster or two. 

Next door, the gang at Shui are killing the game with pan-Asian eats that are absolutely turbo-charged with flavour – we can’t stop thinking about those crunchy rice cakes dipped in nuoc cham chay!

After lunch, while away the afternoon with a few of Cherubino City Cellar’s exclusive drops until you’re ready for dinner – which can’t be anything but a bowl of Lulu La Delizia’s award-winning pasta. 

If you haven’t been defeated by the pasta and wine thus far, stroll up to beloved winebar Juanita’s for a neighbourhood nightcap.

Juanitas Subiaco


Start your Sunday deliciously with some of Subi’s best brunching. 1982 Food + Coffee’s classic big breakfast will soothe any sore head, while Mimosa keeps the party going with some epic bottomless brunches – as does the Euro-inspired Bar Amelie.
