Only 3km out of Perth’s CBD, South Perth pays homeage to some of the best foodie destinations that Instagrammers are going #hashtag crazy over.
If you’ve ever driven down Angelo street on a Saturday morning, you’d have seen the line of people waiting impatiently for a seat at a South Perth café favourite, Gusto (and for a good reason). Every dish on their menu is as good as it sounds, from their potato hot cake with avo smash, to their goats cheese scrambled eggs. But they don’t take bookings here, so you may want to get in early to avoid getting’ hangry’.
TRY: House made crumpets with berry compote, peanut gravel and yoghurt
86 Angelo Street South Perth
Sitting pretty on Canning Highway, Sprolo are best known for their smooth coffee brewed by Blacklist Coffee Roasters (as well as their epic menu). The café takes it’s name from a mash up of the term ‘yolo’, and ‘spro’ (a fancy barista term for espresso). But don’t expect freshly pressed juice served in mason jars here, because this fancy café is kicking it up a notch. They’ve even got a bunch of house-made spreads you’ve probably never heard of – bacon chutney, coriander cream cheese and salted gula-melaka caramel just to name a few.
TRY: Traditional Singaporean Breakfast – house-made Kaya jam on toast with soft sous vide eggs, white pepper and a dash of dark soy sauce
138 Canning Highway South Perth
Manic Espresso is easily one of Como’s favourite cafes. Not only do they serve up some of the best coffee in the precinct, their food is pretty good too. They’re all about using locally sourced and organic produce, so you can eat your food feeling 100% guilt free. And if you’re an Instagram addict, you’ll snap up one of the most intagrammable breakkies around Perth.
TRY: Golden Glory – corn and bell pepper fritters with smoked salmon, wilted spinach, poached eggs and mango chilli dressing
At Halo Espresso you can have your coffee and feel good about it too, because all of the profits made here are invested in helping fund the owners’ charity organisation, Sonlife International. While the coffee here is of course the star of this little espresso bar, the food menu is on until around 2PM, so the Sunday sleep-in isn’t off the cards.
TRY: Huevos Rancheros – spiced beans, avocado, chorizo, tortilla chips and poached eggs
82 Angelo St, South Perth
Millpoint Caffee is providing literature lovers with a side of bacon every day of the week. Once you’ve chosen a book from their huge library, snap up a table, order yourself something to eat and get lost in the story. Their menu is just as good as their book collection, with everything from eggs to pancakes, muesli and French toast. And they serve up some of the finest Fiore coffee, so you’ll have no problem wasting the day away at this book café.
TRY: Breakfast Bruschetta – Tomato bruschetta with grilled minted haloumi and green pesto, served on a toasted bagel and topper with a soft poached egg
