In this day and age, it’s hard to find a cafe that isn’t wheelchair accessible, but that doesn’t mean all spaces are created equal.
We scoured Perth far and wide for the most accessibility-friendly locations and here are a few of the ones we loved the most.
The Golden Oldies:
Coffee – tick! Delicious bakery treats – tick! A scrumptiously standard sandwich offering – tick!. Most muffin breaks are located in major shopping centres hence they all have disabled parking out front, a flat accessible entry and disabled bathrooms.
Locations: Morley Galleria, Ellenbrook Central, Karrinyup, Kingsway, Yokine, Innaloo, Cloverdale, Wanneroo, Hillarys, Mirrabooka Square, Joondalup Dianella, Garden City, Cannington, Maddington, Altone Park and CanningVale.
The Coffee Club
A great Australian favourite! As these coffee shops are within major shopping centres they have ample disabled parking, accessible entry and disabled bathroom access. Great coffee, and a delicious and reliable food offering.
Locations: Ellenbrook Central, Belmont Forum, Floreat Forum, Morley Galleria, Mirrabooka Square, Garden City and Claremont Quarter.
With the same diverse menu and fab coffee at every location, you know that at Dome you’ll always find something to suit. Every Dome Cafe has disabled parking around, spacious accessible entry and a disabled bathroom.
Locations: Perth City, Midland, Morley, Ellenbrook Vic Park, Mount Pleasant, Kingsley, Warwick, Bassendean, Nedlands, Ardross, Forrestfield, Maylands, Hillarys, Booragoon, North Coogee and Fremantle.
Shop for your essentials and grab a coffee and a cake whilst you’re at it! We like Bunning’s cafes for when you’re in the mood for a quiet and relaxed mid-week munch, with a cheeky side of DIY. All Bunnings have disabled parking, a spacious flat entry and a disabled bathroom.
Locations: Pretty much every major suburb in and around Perth!
Coffee is consistent and accessibility and affordability is on point. All Micky-D’s have disabled parking out front, flat accessible entryways and a spacious disabled bathroom.
Something a bit different:
A new and exciting community-first cafe has been making its mark on the hearts and minds of the good people of Victoria Park. We love Social Manna for its curiously creative menu, great coffee and the friendliest staff in at least that part of the river!
There is plenty of parking around the place, though, most of it is paid, and the cafe itself has loads of spacious outdoor seating with no centre table legs. Although the cafe doesn’t have specifically disability-friendly toilets, there any many publicly available toilets in the area.
Located in The Swan Valley, Yahava is obviously going to provide you with a top tier coffee experience, and it even has a drive thru for when you just can’t be bothered being social, but still need a caffeine fix.
Disabled parking out the front, flat accessible entry and disabled bathroom.
Located in Wanneroo, great coffee with fabulous food options. Disabled parking out the front, flat accessible entry and a disabled bathroom. Service with a smile.
Earthwise Community Garden
Not exactly a cafe per se, but they do have a community lunch every Thursday that is a full-flavoured, inclusivity-driven experience, welcoming to all. The food is whatever’s on offer and always delicious, and the company is just as delightful as the productive gardens that surround the centre.
There is disabled parking out the front, a flat accessible entry and a disabled bathroom.
The Coffee Hut
Located in Herne Hill a hidden gem with delicious coffee and home-style treats.
Disabled parking out front, accessible flat entry and next door attached to the petrol station is the disabled bathroom.
Ootong & Lincoln
With plenty of outdoor seating, a ramp right in the middle of the eatery, and the order counter now centred right near the front door, Ootong & Lincoln is not only home to one of the best brunch menus in Perth, it’s also accessibility friendly.
Parking isn’t the easiest in the area, however it is simple enough to get to using the Freo’s finest CAT bus. Also has disability-friendly toilets.
Maison St Honore
The new location in East Perth is everything we love about Perth’s cafe scene with wide open ceilings and that oh-so-familiar industrial feel to it – the French-inspired menu takes your taste buds on a trip to Paris and the openly spaced seating plan allows plenty of room for a wheelchair to navigate around.
Parking in the area is scarce but available and the cafe also has spacious and comfortable disabled toilets.
