Alex and Aisuru are a little similar in a couple of ways – we both share the corner of William and James Streets and like us they do things a little differently. Bacon, cream cheese, sundried tomato and pickled mackerel sit alongside the usual suspects in the list of ingredients on the menu. There’s something for everyone here – from sushi rolls & yakitori to creamy popcorn shrimp and everything in between! Vegetarian? This is the right place.link
With neighbours like Francoforte and Superstar Waffles, this end of Williams Lane had enough evening cred, but someone needed to step up and cater for the breakfast and in-between crowd – and hello Babooshka. The coffee is great but it’s really the food offering that’ll have you coming back. The Dukkah Eggs and the Tsar’s breakfast are a must, as is the breakfast named after the establishment – the Babooshka. That’s three knockouts and at least three visits…link
Soul food with a South African heart. The menu here changes from time to time making return trips inevitable – a shame that! Goat Bunny Chow always seems to make the cut though and why not – delcious chunks of Durban-style goat served in a hollowed out bun (cue the drool). These guys also do some pretty sharp lunch specials too…..just check their website for opening times as they sometimes change!link
A bivouac is an improvised campsite – often a temporary one at that. Thankfully, Bivouc Canteen & Bar isn’t going anywhere anytime soon with superbly well executed food and warm hospitality.

Situated down the road on Roe Street, Pleased to Meet You used to be a little tricky to find – thankfully they’ve ditched their old “38” sign and replaced it with the name of the venue. Once inside it can be a challenge when it comes to choosing what to eat, with a small plate menu that’s as interesting and varied as you’ll see. Beef tongue ruben bao anyone?link
Your sucking down long strands of spaghetti at Francoforte when you notice across the arcade a steady stream of people coming and going from a little joint called Superstar Waffles. It’s waffles, waffles and waffles here with some cool waffle-ey* takes on some classics like S’mores waffles and Banoffee waffles as well as some ripper classic flavour combinations. It’s in the name, these truly are Superstar Waffles. *Waffle-ey is not a real word but we like it.link
Yes the coffee is good and yes the venue is the requisite amount of “cool” but what this place is all about is writ large in it’s name – toasted grilled cheese sandwiches. There are some out there combinations like the Pear Grillz or the Danny Zuccho but regardless of what you choose you’ll never leave disappointed. Keeping it real – the space is frequently used for small gigs for local & up and coming artists.link
For almost 30 years Viet Hoa has been dishing up good honest Vietnamese food to those lucky enough to be in the know. The venue is a number of scales below flash and their forays into “Aussie” Chinese classics are a take it or leave it affair but on a cool evening any of their pho options are as good at their price point as you’ll find in Perth and your guaranteed the freshest produce – so important in pho – as the number of customers coming and going dicate as much!link
