I like the café at the Western Australian Museum in Northbridge as it's got a delightful vintage vibe and I love the energy of the Perth Cultural Centre. The café at Fremantle Arts Centre and Woolly Lattes in Wembley are also nice as they have a cosy yet creative atmosphere. While Freo Arts Centre always has great exhibitions and art classes, Woolly Lattes also serves as a forum where local textile artists can exhibit and sell their creations.
I really like Little Stove in Bicton. As well as super friendly staff, they use locally sourced ingredients or grown in their kitchen garden. It is very child-friendly and also dog-friendly. It's a good refreshment stop for cyclist too who are riding around the river through Point Walter as there are bike racks out the front of the cafe.
