About The Cutlery Drawer

Nestled in the heart of Manning, The Cutlery Drawer is a paradise for Perth’s foodies, serving up modern Australian cuisine as well as great coffee, seven days a week. Head on over in the morning for some avo smash or hurricane beans (house-cooked beans with chorizo, capsicum and cheesy chilli sausage, served with poached eggs and ciabatta) to set you up for the day, share some small plates like the lemon pepper squid or go large with mains like the cajun spiced lamb sliders. Located on Welwyn Avenue, The Cutlery Drawer is a local favourite, so book in advance to score the best seat at this hotspot.

Nice little suburban cafe. Convenient and easy to park. The menu is a little limited - there could be more fresh garden style salads for the summer. I have noticed a lot of woman are present during the day - catching up with friends etc so simple garden salads would be appreciated. Some 'healthy' alternatives. The prices are excellent. The service is great and the staff are lovely - the owner and his wife are a delightful couple who are really making a go of it in a very competitive market. There is a very nice outdoor area and the inside has a friendly and pleasant ambiance. Definitely recommend for casual meets!

Always enjoy the food, coffee and atmosphere at the Cuttlery Draw. Try their specialty fruit and veggie drinks amazing. Good choice of rooms to sit.

Very much cafe style (order from the counter - BYO alcohol only) and more spacious than first appearances. Kids had chicken subs, steak burger, chips and chocolate fudge and milk shakes which they all rated very highly. Wife and I had paella which was somewhat disappointing. As this dish can take some time I asked how long to prepare, told '3 minutes'. Obviously a microwave re-heat job! Also overpowered with a chilli chorizo which is not traditional paella style - there is paprika and saffron in a paella; but no chilli! It was more like a reheated, pretty bland, deprived of ingredients risotto than a paella. Would try something else next time. Overall we enjoyed our time there, the friendly and efficient service and appreciated the consideration shown with the corkage.

The muffin I ordered was at least 48 hours old. No napkins or forks served with the plate. The cafe had zero ambience, with a noisy aircon that prevented relaxed conversation. The staff, although not unpleasant, lacked the welcome mat, we were obviously interrupting their quiet afternoon. It was a dismal experience. No wonder the place was completely empty except for my friend and I. We won't be returning.

We enjoyed the lunch as it was great food and allowed us to have meeting in a quiet setting. The fan made it a cool dinning experience.

Food and fresh juices were great, but meals for our group of 7 didn't arrive together - some had finished before others even had theirs.
