Fathom Favorites : Perth

1. Halford Bar

Halford Bar

A theatrically decadent underground bar located in the safe room of the old Titles building. With velvet loveseats, gold accents, and table service, Halford serves impressive classic and housemade cocktails alongside a careful choice of champagne, wine, and spirits.

2. Alabama Song

Alabama Song

Deep Southern America vibes come to Perth at Alabama song, a divey whiskey bar complete with leather banquette seating and wall-mounted taxidermy. There’s over 120 types of whiskey, bourbon, and rye, alongside American classics like cheeseburgers and chicken wings.

232 William St,
Perth WA 6000

3. Tiisch


Serious brunchers dine at Tiisch, whose menu is on a whole other level. We’re talking miko matcha pancakes and confit salmon eggs benedict. But the beautiful heritage brick building and copious greenery makes a relaxing space to debate the best breakfast pastries.

Perth WA 600


4. Hylin


A local favorite, this brick-walled cafe takes design queues from New York’s High Line, mixing industrial bones with resplendent greenery, and a NYC skyline homage in graffiti. An outdoor eating area of mismatched benches and chairs are a summer favorite, and the food ranges from healthy to ultimately decadent, but is always light, fresh fare.

West Leederville WA 6007


5. Toast

With incredible, edge-of-the-Swan-River views on their Australian sun-dappled patio, you’d think the location was the best part of this east Perth café. Until you try the food. Like the name suggests, you can get pretty much anything on toast, but variety is king here. We’re talking six kinds of crepes, eggs benedict five ways, and seven different breakfast bowls.

21/60 Royal St,
East Perth WA 6004


6. Measure Bar

Measure Bar

A dessert bar serving sweets, but not as you know them. Dark, moody bar plating raisies dessert to the level of artwork. Combine with cocktails for the ultimate experience. The constantly changing menu is always outstanding.

642 Beaufort St,
Mount Lawley WA 6050


7. Henry Summer

Henry Summer

It’s always sunny at Henry Summer – come for the exquisite cocktails, stay for the amazing dip platter in this lush, jungle print-filled, outdoor patio bar. There’s no sign, but follow the tunes to this local secret.

69 Aberdeen St,
Northbridge WA 6003

8. Market Grounds

Market Grounds

One of Perth’s newest and biggest venues, with a dining area, mezzanine, bar, sunken lounge, and garden patio. The restaurant has a meat-and-veg vibe, from giant tomahawk ribeye to exmouth bug, while the bar menu offers more relaxed options like wood-fired pizza, burgers, and a chip butty. Either way, the cocktails, with names like Bloody Beetroot and Cilantro Collins, are not to be missed.

Perth WA 6000


9. Mary Street Bakery

Mary Street Bakery

No visit to Perth is complete without a taste of Mary St Bakery’s incredible donuts. They also do an unforgettable fried chicken and buttermilk pancakes for brunch if you can score a table. The Mary Street location is the OG, but there are, thankfully, locations across the city.
