Just north of Perth, in the picturesque coastal town of Hillarys is where you’ll find the exceptional cafe, Social. This Australian-style cafe serves up all the dishes you’ve come to expect, alongside coffee to rival the baristas of Melbourne. Open for breakfast and lunch, seven days per week, and for dinner from Wednesday to Sunday, this Southside Drive spot is the ideal choice for your morning brunch fix, or for a relaxing evening meal with your nearest and dearest over the weekend. Whatever takes your fancy, you can be sure you’ll be in for a treat, but just be sure to book in advance and they’re certainly popular with locals and tend to fill up quickly!
Food sounds delicious?

It was very disappointing. We had the seafood platter for 2. The worst food We ever had or should I say served as we did not eat the majority of it.To their credit the staff were terrific. Had I not prepaid I would have asked for me money back.
Reserved table needed to be cleared and cleaned while we waited. The waitress knocked over a carafe of water while wiping the table; she only wiped half of it up. Unused cutlery was left on the table inhabited by previous users. Two of us ordered from the breakfast menu and were served within half an hour. Two of us ordered from the lunch menu and waited far longer (an hour before complaining to management). It was after eleven when orders were taken and according to the menu that was when the lunch menu started. So some training and improvement required.
Lovely location. Yummy food. Service could have been better. Wait time was acceptable. Will go again :-)
A stone’s throw from the stunning Hillarys coastline, Social is ideal for your pre or post swim, no matter what time of day. Just north of Sorrento, this area of Perth is a delight for locals and tourists, so it’s no wonder one of the best cafes has found its home here. Serving up classic Australian dishes, perfect for your morning brunch fix or for a special evening out, and with its location just by the Rottnest Ferry on Southside Drive, Social will certainly tick all the right boxes in terms of flavour, atmosphere and quality ingredients.
If you’re visiting Social for breakfast, we recommend sampling the smashed avocado and pea salmon benedict, topped with poached eggs, and housemade hollandaise, or if you tend to enjoy the sweeter side of life, go for the oreo and caramelised banana crepe topped with fresh cream and maple syrup, alongside a freshly made coffee, of course. For later on, the six hour pulled pork nachos brimming with jalapenos, guacamole and cheddar goes down a treat, as does the fish burger in a brioche bun smothered in homemade herbed mayonnaise. Whatever tickles your fancy, Social in Hillarys has got you covered. So book a table at this Perth favourite and see what the fuss is all about!
