CafeSmart 2023 Cafes

Updated 11 months ago


For 12 years CafeSmart has supported local not-for-profit organisations with its annual fundraising initiative for Australians in need. To date, the initiative has raised close to $2 million for over 1000 local projects.

If you buy a coffee on Friday August 4, participating cafes will donate $1 to support homeless charities and services close to your neighbourhood. As for you – you legend – you can donate the price of another coffee via a QR code that will appear on the cafe’s coffee cup stickers, posters and whatnot. In fact, that’s something you can do any time that week, between August 1 and 7. Find a cafe close to you here.

Funds raised are kept local, meaning roasters and cafes are directly supporting vital services for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness around Perth.

To join this fight against homelessness, find your local participating cafe or donate the cost of a coffee online, visit CafeSmart.

  • For the love of coffee and all things handmade. Everything is roasted in-house and pulled through custom-built Slayers.

  • This is one of the few Australian bakeries milling its own flour. Come for single-origin loaves, sweet pastries and vegemite scrolls, sandwiches, and coffee by Five senses.

  • Meet your new office-lunch favourite, with Asian- and Italian-inspired subs made to order. You might go for a classic conti roll, a vego panini with eggplant parmigiana and Napoli sauce, or a banh mi-inspired roll with slow-roasted porchetta, house pickles and chilli.

  • Nan’s recipes and mum’s hospitality combine at this takeaway-focused cafe.

  • A touch of Morocco in Mount Lawley.

  • A leafy coffee oasis.

  • A “responsible cafe” with a health-conscious menu.
