Wanted to try something different so yesterday I googled cafes near me & this was where I ended up for a late breakfast on a Monday morning, the location is lovely, I sat outside under the shade sails facing the park (which was only off putting due to the flies) The initial service was ok, seemed as though the lady...

My wife had the calamari, and I chose the hamburger, but the white creamy sauce was not for me. Dining is outdoors, so cold days are not recommended. Prices tend to be high for a cafe.

This is a simple but modern cafe, set in a really picturesque part of Perth. The menu is diverse and super healthy. Service was warm and friendly and the food was yummy. Went with my wife and some teenage boys...and got ticks from all of them.

Love love love this nice little cafe next to the canning river. The salmon was fresh, the eggs beautiful pouched and I felt like the whole plate was so well presented. Great customer service too

My husband and one of our sons often come here for breakfast after paddling their kayaks on the stretch of Canning River which is accessible from here. The cafe is set on the edge of a large park. We chose to stop by on a sunny Saturday afternoon so it was no surprise to see the place very busy. We... More

We had lunch at the Canning River Café - a bit cold at this time of the year (July) because all the seats are in the open to some degree. Overhead heaters are there to help. The battered fish and (a lot of!) Chips was nice with a particularly nice side sauce. The surrounding area is great for walks and... More

Visited for brunch on Sunday with a large group for our daughters birthday. Food was yummy, coffee nice and service by the two young ladies who were waiting on us was exceptional. The offer of blankets on a chilly day was appreciated too.
