5 baby friendly Perth coffee spots


So this mum gig it seems has rekindled me with my coffee cravings. Back when I was working in the corporate sector coffee was a necessity (read about when I decided to work for myself rather than someone else here). These days I really just enjoy coffee and will take any opportunity to have one, often with cake and several times a day.

As mentioned in my foodie musings in March, finding baby friendly inner city cafes brewing quality coffee has been a challenge and it was even tougher finding cafes open after 4pm.

So here it is, 11 months in the making, some of my favourite baby friendly Perth coffee spots…the list started out really small, I even traded off good coffee to just be somewhere baby friendly. I’m glad to have since taken off my “dining out with a baby” training wheels 🙂

The list continues to grow every coffee drinking day so here’s 5 to start off with, otherwise this post will never get published.

#1 Hobart Deli – North Perth

Hobart Deli in North Perth was a random discovery. I was catching up with my friend Mia for coffee and needed somewhere close to home that was open after 4pm. A quick look on Zomato brought up Hobart Deli which is a 2-minute drive from place and WOW what a discovery that was.

There’s a little gated park across the road from Hobart Deli which has a playground for the older kids and plenty of grass for baby play dates. Plus this café brews a quality latte and the lemon meringue is AMAZING…

So amazing, I went back three days later for a latte and lemon meringue again. Kudos to the Chef who turns out to be instagram @eliseknowles husband.

If you fancy sitting inside Hobart Deli, there’s also high chairs available.

#2 Yahava Koffeeworks – Swan Valley

Breathtaking views, plenty of grass, high chairs readily available, kids tables…drive through coffee! Need I say more? Plus to top it off, I had the most amazing salted caramel slice…I didn’t waste any time getting cutlery and just ate it with a popsicle stick.

I also hasd a craving for something warm and although I really felt like hot chips, this ham and cheese croissant did the trick.

#3 Blue Lotus Cafe inside Waldecks – Karrinyup

I still remember driving to Waldecks when I just had junior burger and thinking “I can’t believe I’m going to Waldecks for coffee”. It was surprisingly good coffee & cake! Desserts are made offsite by a caterer and delivered to Waldecks.

This pear and blueberry slice was actually pretty similar to my Italian mother-in-law’s pear & raspberry cake…

There’s plenty of space to manoeuvre your prams (great for mother groups) and a small gated grassed playground for babies and toddlers.

# 4 Sherbet – Maylands

I was at one point, visiting Sherbet weekly after taking junior burger swimming. The outdoor space is enough to fit two prams and there’s free street parking on Eight Ave and Whatley Cres. Plus these guys make the BEST red velvet cake in Perth. Quality coffee too.

Here’s a more detailed write up on Sherbet.

# 5 Whistler’s Chocolate Factory – Middle Swan

There’s limited lunch options at Whistler’s but the scones & coffee are good. Plus most importantly (for me) there’s plenty of grass for junior burger to play, high chairs and a baby change room.

What I look out for when dining out with my baby

When out with junior burger, I value…

Considerate staff – those who take coffee around rather than over junior burger’s pram – yep it has happened many times while she is in it!

Open spaces / alfresco seating -so I don’t get all flustered if junior burger starts testing out her voice

• Easy pram access – otherwise ramps, lifts or escalators will do! Carrying (a well-fed) junior burger up flights of stairs ain’t fun

Baby change room facilities – more so when she was younger and needed milk every two hours!

Availability of high chairs – this is more important to us now as junior burger doesn’t like to sit in her pram for long

I have foodie cravings all the time and sometimes at very odd hours, hence the name of this food blog, where I share my love for food and appliances that save me time in the kitchen. I also own Crust Mount Lawley with my burger eating half burger boy and am a mum to two girls – junior burger and baby cravings.


  1. Great list! I really appreciate places that have baby change facilities! Some people say oh just change em in the back of the car! Which works ok until it’s raining! Will have to check some of these places out when I am in Perth next
    • Yea and with a wiggly baby it’s hard work hey! So glad to hear it’ll be of use 🙂 it’s been on my to write list since junior burger was born as the first few months I was having pretty bad coffee. In saying that, I was happy with any caffeine at that point 🙂

    Another great one is the sweet remedy cafe 255a Oxford st Leederville. kids can decorate there own cup cake and eat it. at the back on outside there is a grass fenced area where kids can run around and there is a big chalk board. seats for parents to sit at. my two young daughters loved decorating there cup cakes and eating them. coffee, babycinos and cupcakes were delicious!
