Things to do in Northbridge

Northbridge has long been known for its gritty, boozy nightlife, and energetic backpacker crowds; not to mention the entertaining people watching or encounters. Last year I wrote about our family lunch at Northbridge and how Mum and Dad hadn’t visited the area in over 20 years. And, they loved it! Since then I’ve been stopping through Northbridge, and discovering this culturally entrenched neighbourhood on the other side of the train tracks has much to offer, and here a few of my favourite things to do in Northbridge.

Take away Pandan cake from Esther’s Cake Store

Vintage shopping at Vinnies on William Street

Early morning coffee from Babooskhka in Arcade 189

Coffee outside in the fresh air from the cute Flora and Fauna cafe

A place to squeeze in some early morning work over a big healthy, and sometimes colourful breakfast from Little Bird Café, Buckwheat pancakes my favourite

Bulk flour, grains and spices shopping from Kakulas Brothers

Breakfast wrap and decent coffee from Little Willys

Beer on tap and a place for family lunch at Northbridge Brewery

Asian grocery shopping along William Street, north of Newcastle Street

Sitting in the sun, free wifi internet at Northbridge Piazza, free yoga during summer

Late night sundae and basically anything super indulgent from San Churros

Beef redang from Hawker’s Cuisine

Movie night at Cinema Paradiso

Steak Bento Box from IsDonburi

Silvana Coffee beans and continental Italian rolls from Re-store, also great for European grocery shopping

Midnight cheese toasties from the diner, The Moon Late Night Cafe. One of the first places in Perth where you could find Grandma’s furniture inside.

Others place on my radar;
