Long known as Perth’s creative and cultural heart, Northbridge is an ideal spot to relax with a brew, a carb heavy brunch and watch the city’s most bohemian crowd pass by. You’ll be spoilt for choice around here, with an array of enticing cafes dishing up ‘traditional’ Aussie fare alongside craft coffees and fresh juices.
A good place to start is the ever popular, and impossibly cute, Little Willy’s. The vibe here is relaxed and friendly in a bright and simple space packed with work by local artists, while the kitchen serves up tasty breakfast and lunch options –the burrito is the star of the show here. In keeping with its quirky character Little Willy’s only accepts cash, so bring some notes.

Little Bird Cafe
If you fancy filling your Instagram feed with food envy inducing shots of edible flowers adorning homemade chocolate and peanut butter cakes (to name just one) then get over to the Little Bird Café on Lake Street. This little place has been delighting customers with their indulgent baked goods for years, but if you fancy something a little ‘cleaner’ there are plenty of vegan, gluten and dairy free options on offer too. All equally as tasty, and pretty. The banana and coconut buckwheat pancakes never fail to impress.

Exposed brickwork, high timber clad white ceilings and fresh flowers abound making for a homely and comforting scene. Just what you need when you’re feeling a bit delicate.
