Best cafe Moana Coffee in perth for 2016

This is a favourite of mine when I'm in the city for work or leisure. I've never eaten here so can't comment on the food but the slices in the cold display are home made and nice. The coffee is great and the staff all seem to enjoy their jobs here and make great coffee. Found this place quite by accident about 3 years ago I think as it's hidden from Street view below and now make it a habit to go whenever I am in the CBD.

Worth the walk. Stunningly smooth flat white. Glad I dropped in. Albeit up a flight of stairs.

Best cafe Architects and Heroes  in perth for 2016

Super spot A&H is on Rokeby Rd. Super smooth flat white perfect strength. Glad I dropped in. Fab cafe.

A&H has been a top favourite for a while. Always a good brew

I have a love hate relationship with A&H. I live right around the corner and love the coffee. The service though is horrendous... The staff move in slow motion so they can be pretentious and chat to their friends who are in the line, they take twice as long as they need to make a takeaway coffee just to get the pattern on the top right, only to put a lid on it anyway. Plus, they write on the lids with markers, and the smell of that ruins the taste of the coffee. There are better options in Subi these days!

Best cafe La Veen Coffee & Kitchen in perth for 2016

Overall, a nice place. My coffee was good, though a little on the cold side, despite requesting extra hot. Atmosphere is nice, I found it had plenty of tables at 9.30 am, but it was quite chilly and pity there were folk smoking outside while the doors were open. Service was superb.

Found myself back here looking for something above average, and got it. Even with a busy morning rush, I still got my coffee in 5 minutes. Great zest and spice were there in my long mac, with perfect texture and temp. The warm cinnamon doughnut was a brilliant match.

Coffee was milky and a bit weak in flavor for me. Nice place but coffee needs a bit of bite.

Bossman

Mount Lawley

Best cafe Bossman in perth for 2016

Just love Bossman, Daniel & crew. They constantly deliver the best coffee. Always a delight to partake @ the Bossman.

The coffee here was strong and delicious. Great to find a place in Perth that does coffee right!

Love being back at the Boss’. Daniel & crew just keep delivering top coffee made top.

Low Down

Perth CBD

Best cafe Low Down in perth for 2016

Went back here to follow-up. Given the Fiori beans, we will only get "OK" coffee here. Also the music is too loud for any conversation. However, the prices are exceptional for Perth, which is the main reason for the popularity - $4 for extra shot latte 12 oz is pretty good for the city. Also fast service while the coffee is brought to you every time.

Best cafe Standing Room Only in perth for 2016

This place is one of my regulars in the CBD, tasty blend and consistently good coffees. As the name suggests, best as a grab and go, I wouldn't go there to sit and drink your coffee.

I love the coffee here - visiting from Melbourne it's my go to place for a great coffee fast and friendly service and cool decor No food, no Seats - just great coffee

Really really really good coffee, one of the best I have had not only in Perth but country wide, will make a point of getting my coffee from here whenever I can.

Best cafe Elixir Coffee Specialists in perth for 2016

Best coffee in Perth without question. I travel from Adelaide for work regularly and have tried many places but not anymore. Now I only go to Elixir because it is the best coffee around and the service is excellent too. Do yourself a favour and try their zucchini chorizo pasta!

Best coffee in Perth The flavour was spot on, great beans, fantastic barista all & all awesome experience.

Its been a while since I paid a visit to Elixir. They still make one of the best strong flat whites (long mac topped up) in Perth. They are also very consistent, the quality has always been this good. I also had the filter, delicate flavours compared with the FW but also top notch.
