11 Swan Valley Breakfast Spots To Try

Swan Valley Breakfast - avo and eggs from taylors in the valley

One of my favourite things to do is head to the Swan Valley for breakfast – whether its on the weekend with family or a weekday brekkie catch up with colleagues or friends. I must admit I often get stuck in my ways, heading to the same spots over and over.

I’ve rounded up 11 amazing Swan Valley breakfast spots you need to try on your next day out in the Swan Valley.

Swan Valley Breakfast Spots To Try

1. Taylors In The Valley

Middle Swan

Taylors in the Valley has been a popular spot in the Swan Valley for breakfast for some years now. We’ve been a few times and always had a lovely experience, whether seated outside on a warm, sunny day, or inside near the fireplace on a chilly winter weekend.

The food is impeccable and they always have interesting veggie and vegan options too – long before being vegan was in vogue!

I love their all-day brekkie/brunch menu, which means you can have eggs for lunch or BBQ crumbed chicken for breakfast. The menu changes quite regularly and they always have quirky specials too.

2. Homestead Brewery


A firm favourite when we have visitors in Perth, Homestead Brewery has a pretty setting overlooking the vineyard at Mandoon Estate.

They’re open from 07:30 making it a good spot for an early breakfast in the Swan Valley. The menu is slightly smaller on a weekday to if you want the full range of options, head there on the weekend where you can get your usual scrambled eggs or avo on toast or go rogue and try their Katsu chicken curry for breakfast.

3. Maison Saint-Honore


If you haven’t been to Maison Saint-Honore yet, you are seriously missing out! Affectionately known in our house as ‘the macaron factory’, they do the most delicious French pastries, macarons and crepes known to mankind!

Their popularity meant they opened at several other locations around Perth including Floreat, Mount Pleasant, East Perth, Ellenbrook, Mosman Park and most recently in Mount Hawthorn.

Their flagship store in Caversham is both dog and kid friendly, so expect long queues and limited parking – get there early!

4. Padburys Café


I’d been wanting to head for breakfast at Padbury’s for YEARS and finally went last year. And I can tell you I was not disappointed.

Firstly, they have the most divine cinnamon scrolls I have ever seen in Perth – these are pretty much a breakfast in themselves so I’d recommend getting one to go when you leave for your afternoon tea. I went for the famous lemon meringue pancakes which were out of this world. If you have a sweet tooth at breakfast, this is the dish for you!

Like Taylors, their menu is an all day one, from 7am to 2pm. They’re also open for dinner on Fridays and Saturdays if you want to return for an evening experience.

I will note that inside was extremely noisy, to the point where it was almost impossible to have a conversation at all. My mum who has a cochlear implant had to take it off as it was overwhelming for her. So, my pro tip would be if you book and want to have a chat while enjoying your brekkie, request a table outside (there are very compared to inside!) as I think this would have been a lot more pleasant.

5. Bailey Brewing Co

Henley Brook

Hailed as the most kid-friendly brewery in the valley, Bailey Brewing Co also offers up a hearty breakfast menu on weekends from 08:00.

Their interesting menu currently has things like chicken croissant and eggs benny on a cheese toastie, among your more usual smoothie bowls and pancakes, making it a good choice if you have some adventurous breakfast peeps with you.

After brekkie you can work it off and bring out your inner child on their famous flying fox (that’s a foefie slide to us South Africans!) and stunning nature playground.

6. The Naked Fox

Henley Brook

Located on West Swan Road, the Naked Fox has been on my ‘to visit’ list for ages! It’s a European-style café by day and wine bar by night. Their wine bar menu includes gourmet toasties named after Shakespeare plays and some authentic Spanish tapas and Italian-inspired small plates and cheese boards.

The star here though just may be their 23-page wine list which only contains wines made right here in Western Australia.

7. Lavender Bistro

West Swan

Just down the road from The Naked Fox, you’ll find the Lavender Bistro, owned and run by French duo Claude & Pascal.

They’re famous for their sweets including their lavender macarons and lavender tasting plate, but also do a fabulous high tea option available from 10am – making it totally acceptable to add to a list of where to have breakfast in the Swan Valley!

8. Mrs Rabbit Tearooms

Henley Brook

Opened in March 2023, Mrs Rabbit Farmhouse & Tearooms is just a joy to behold. Their Marie Antionette inspired parlour is filled with gorgeous furniture and décor that complements their freshly baked scones and rabbit shaped shortbread biscuits.

Not only can you enjoy their stunning cakes and baked goods, but take some time to browse their shop filled with great gifts, artwork, and homemade jams.

9. Guildford Milk Bar


Guildford Milk Bar has been around for over 20 years and that says a lot about the place. A very popular spot if you’re looking for breakfast near the Swan Valley. They specialise in excellent coffee, all-day breakfasts, and have a selection of homemade authentic Asian dishes as well.

Guildford is always worth a wander; I just love the eclectic stores and historic streets and buildings.

10. Rose & Crown


The Rose & Crown is another spot we always love to take visitors when we have them. Their stunning courtyard is the perfect setting for a bite to eat or just a drink. In summer it’s lovely and shaded from the trees and in winter they have patio heaters so you can still sit outside and enjoy the gardens.

Now they only offer breakfast on Sundays but it’s a brekkie worth heading out for. Try the house made waffles which come in a sweet (Nutella, banana, strawberry and double cream) or savoury (bacon, eggs and maple syrup) option.

I wrote a blog about lunch at the Rose & Crown a few years ago which you can read here.

11. Slate Café

Bennett Springs

If you have kids or dogs, when you think breakfast in the Swan Valley, your first thought is most likely Slate Café.

Opened in 2016, this is one of Perth’s most popular spots for a kid-friendly and dog-friendly breakfast. They have an indoor and outdoor playground for the kids, plus an enclosed dog playground and huge grass picnic area, so you can make yourself at home to enjoy the surroundings. They’re only open Friday, Saturday and Sunday and don’t take bookings unless it’s for 8+ people so make sure you plan ahead.

And there you have it – 11 Swan Valley breakfast spots you need to try on your next day out in the Swan Valley.
