Whilst we hate cheating on our usual coffee spot, sometimes living in Perth requires us to stray away from where the barista knows our name. When you are required to leave your locale, don’t be stuck on where to get the best coffee in Perth. Here is our guide to the best coffee in Perth, so you are never stuck on where to get your fix.
First stop, Howard’s Groove. Opened by coffee legends Smooth Operator, their sultry sister store on Howard Street is the perfect spot to take a breather from the office or running errands in the CBD. Using Twin Peaks speciality beans, they focus on delivering quality cups of perfection every time with a limited selection of bites. For the best coffee in Perth City, you can’t pass them up. Special mention to an OG of the CBD coffee scene, La Veen and their soft-serve ice lattes, a match made in heaven.
At Munch, we are all about the vibes as much as we are quality sips and eats. Hence why we can never go past a stop at Vinyl Café, where you can crate dig for the next addition to your record collection while you wait for your order. Please don’t give up the opportunity to sample one of their signature toasties but be warned, if you try the Pearl Jam gorgonzola and mushroom toastie, any toastie following will be sub-par. What about a haircut while you’re at it? Get a haircut from Billy Black’s Barbering Experience in-store, just a bit off the sides please.
Look, we know we aren’t offering anything groundbreaking with this Freo coffee staple, but Hush is just too damn good to go past. Their cosy red brick interior pulls you back in every time as we struggle to not order a savoury muffin with our coffee. Consistency is key in coffee, and Hush has never let us down with their take on the Five Senses roast. An honourable mention to Micro Lote, bringing a Colombian twist to the Freo scene with their direct trade bean suppliers, which provides maximum profit to farmers. Between these two, you won’t be stuck for coffee in Fremantle.
When in Scarborough, we usually want to max out our time on the sand. So for your cup of joe on the go, Social Coffee House doesn’t mess around. These folk specialise in your guilt-less, vegan, and gluten-free snacks, perfect for a post-swim bagel feed or coffee in hand for your morning stroll. They keep it eco-friendly with their snack packaging; bring your keep cup for barista brownie points!
What about the best coffee in Victoria Park? The headquarters for all things quality brew, Bespoke by Barista HQ reign king along the Albany Highway strip. They know their hands around a grinder and milk jug, pouring the perfect caffeinated cup every time. Bespoke offers barista basics and latte art classes if you want to learn what goes on behind the scenes and hold a new appreciation for your usual. Special mention to Sixteen Ounces at the lower end of the Vic Park strip, offering a delightful plant-adorned vibe with the friendliest service every time.
Following a visit to Lakeside Joondalup, you are going to need a pick-me-up. Head to our favourites at Peppermint Green for your caffeine and sweet treat fix. The ideal spot to get some work done or bring the kids, be rest assured if you dine in, your bites will be dressed to perfection. Take a peruse through their gift store, stocking all local brands focusing on sustainability. From organic lip balm and kids clothing to one-of-a-kind resin platters, their selection has you covered when stuck for a gift.
Amongst the business hub along Herdsman Lake, everyone knows Miss Pickles is the only place to get your coffee in Osborne Park. Always greeted with authentic service, using Leftfield’s Brazillionaire blend coffee rivals a brew at any Perth’s best coffee haunts. Plus, their selection of bites rotating on the daily keeps us on our toes. If you see it in the fridge, don’t miss a chance to grab their homemade sushi or signature baguettes.
Can you believe we were able to narrow down the best coffee spots in Perth down to this list? We most likely missed your favourites, but that’s just more of an excuse for us to get out and try some more of Perth’s best coffee.
