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!
Decided to host brunch for some friends after discover this cafe. Everyone enjoyed their meals and good coffee. Thumbs up to the friendly staff and great service.
Layup was such a fantastic place with delicious food and they had a great variety on their menu. Would definitely recommend going there for brunch.
The service was efficient and friendly and most attentive. The food was beautifully presented, absolutely delicious with very generous portions. The coffee was very good. A most pleasant lunch enjoyed by all seven of us.
Awesome food, wide range of options and mad drink choices too! Great relaxed vibe and service, easy parking. Nothing bad to say about it! Will be back.
We went for breakfast on a Saturday, great food and great atmosphere and really spacious! The only downside was we waited nearly an hour for breakfast to be served. You can show up without a reservation, but it gets busy so definitely recommend booking a table!
Very accommodating for such a large group. Was great to see staff enthusiastic and eager to please. Great atmosphere and well designed. Was a great breakfast, all of us enjoyed the meal and variety.
Interesting all day brunch menu with big taste. Love having the breakfast items w eggs etc as well as more substantial stuffs like philly steak sandwiches plus freshly baked goods in the cabits. Staffs were friendly but the only downside is poor ventilation in the cafe.
The food was really tasty. Unusual items on menu. The prices were reasonble. I've been before with a big group on a Sunday morning when it was quite busy. It was noisy due to poor acoustics.
Great food, great coffee and atmosphere. Excellent that you can book, and parking is easily available. Split billing available. Will definitely visit again soon! :-)
Easy to get to, staff were friendly. Had the burger with the onion rings and the savoury crepes. Both were absolutely delicious. Would highly recommend.
Great food and service. Recommend ....great selection of healthy and yummy food. Location easy to park.....service very professional and friendly. Very nice decor and atmosphere
Great food, great vibe and lovely staff. Only had breakfast this time but will definitely be coming back to try their burgers and lunch menu.
Love the simple and minimal design of this cafe. Coffee was good and there was a great range of breakfast, brunch and lunch options. Will be returning.
Quality of breakfast was excellent. Food presentation fabuslous. Atmoshpere great, service ubber good. Toilet hygene was a complete show stopper (well at least in the mens!).
Food was amazing and really big serves plus the coffee was amazing so can't complain. The place is a little on the pricey side but considering Perth prices it's defiantly worth it.
Great coffee and food, nice atmosphere for a catch up with friends. Ordered the pork belly and the ribwich sandwich with chips. Will be back!
Very friendly service and great food. Amazing menu, found it hard to chose from. The others that I was with also thoroughly enjoyed the place
Very nice cafe with quite a few unique dishes on the menu. They are definitely worth trying. Will go again! Service was good too
Food service was a bit slow despite not being full house. Coffees were good. The ability to book through Quandoo is a good feature especially for large groups.
Good service, friendly staff. The food was tasty and well presented. The tables were not too close together and the decor was tasteful. An enjoyable breakfast.
