Radical mood-enhancement is on the menu at Northbridge’s Layup, a cafe up on Brisbane Street that offers food and drink to suit any way you might be feeling – sweet, salty, sour, hot or cold. This stylish Perth cafe and restaurant serves up amazing breakfasts, incredible coffee, home-baked bread and delicious brunches, and they provide friendly service that’s attentive but not overbearing. Despite the name, there’s no basketball theme here – just a modern, light-filled dining space that encourages great conversations and a feeling of tranquility.
For Perth’s coffee aficionados, Layup is an absolute favourite. From cold brews for hot days to a cappuccino to-go before work, the coffee that you’ll find at this Northbridge hangout is the cream of the crop. Stop in and unwind with the brew of your choice, or take a gander at Layup’s lengthy food menu if you’re feeling hungry for some Australian cafe classics. Found on Brisbane Street just a short walk from Hyde Park and Perth Oval, Layup is a cafe that you’ll want to keep on your radar.
The menu is as changeable as the Perth weather isn’t, normally, but when you’re craving something more than the Fremantle Doctor on a hot summer’s day come in for some sweet crepes with hazelnut praline, house-made chocolate sauce and coconut ice cream. And on those wet winter days there’s nothing like perfect poached eggs with grilled leg ham and broccolini on a freshly baked English muffin to get you into morning gear. The Layup Works burger is a perennial favourite, best washed down with old school New York sodas (creme, black cherry, grape) from Boylan Bottling Co., or BYO booze and let the Layup crew do the heavy lifting. Reserve ahead to ensure a table at this fantastic Northbridge cafe!
Cannot fault the service. Staff were so friendly and efficient. Great coffee and delicious food. Highly recommended! Give it a try next time you’re in the city.
A must try, hidden gem! The coffee at Layup is good, right temperature & smooth
My all time fav place for brunch and coffee is yum!
