Whether it's an avo smash you're craving or a long mac on a cold morning, It's Perth's northern suburbs' time to shine: as we run through our picks of the best places north of the river to get your brunch and coffee fix.
Hylin is a cosy establishment modelled on New York City's iconic High Line. Serving brunch that's as tasty as it is pretty and brewing Micrology coffee, Hylin keeps things simple and delicious with specials such as seasonal bruschetta changing on the regular. After brunch, Hylin also has a small bar hidden away serving cocktails, craft beers, and bar snacks until late. Open seven days a week.
With a focus on community, family, and good wholesome food, Finlay & Sons serves up brunch to feed big kids and little kids alike. Bring along the family and the dog too, to enjoy traditional brunch delights like poached eggs on avocado smash, French toast, and porridge with a coffee on the side. If you're extra hungry, they serve delicious chicken burgers, and of course the classic bacon and egg roll. Open all week, 7am until 2pm, with walk-ins welcome.
Cool, neutral beachy tones make The Little Bay the perfect place for a tranquil brunch and coffee. Located just steps from the ocean at Watermans Bay and serving a simple, locally-sourced menu, we recommend giving their delicious mushroom filo and slow-cooked pork benedict a try for the perfect satisfying brunch. Pouring Locale's Blend N°143 coffee and serving more boozy offerings at lunch time, The Little Bay is open Monday to Wednesday & Friday, 6am to 4pm, Saturday & Sunday, 6am to 5pm, and closed Thursdays.
If you're looking for a Japanese-inspired, sweet spot for brunch, look no further than Chubby Boy in Inglewood. Famous for their shokupan toasts and filled croissants, Chubby Boy is the perfect place to satisfy a sweet tooth alongside a specialty colourful latte, fresh pressed juice, or bubble tea. Open 7am to 6pm Monday to Saturday, and 7am to 5am on Sunday.
