King Street’s La Veen Coffee has long set the standard for coffee and cafe food in Perth’s CBD. It’s still one of the best places for a city breakfast. La Veen’s expansion – designated La Veen HQ, just around the corner from the original location – is a different beast to the original, intended to be more casual and takeaway-driven. When it comes to coffee, the emphasis is on giving most customers what they want: a good flat white.

King Street regulars will find the coffee familiar, but the Raine Square food menu is relatively small. It includes an avo smash and a cheese toastie, as well as an assortment of La Veen’s high-quality baked goods. All food and drinks are served in compostable takeaway containers.

Soft-serve coffee ice-cream is a timely, warm-weather addition to the new store, and La Veen’s treacle ice-cream iced cappuccino – a strong contender for the best iced coffee in town – is also available.
