This is our edit of Perth's best new cafes from the past 12 months, updated monthly.

Some are following the latest coffee trends – continuing the push away from espresso and towards batch-brew – while others are trying to become great neighbourhood catch-up spots.

Here's where we're going for coffee right now.

Micrology

Cafe

The noted roaster’s colourful pro shop is a destination for serious coffee drinkers. Stop by for cold brew on tap, a robust retail selection and baked goods from local bakery, Big Loaf.

1 58 Collingwood Street, Osborne Park

Peggy’s

Cafe

This airy sandwich spot in an 1890s heritage-listed space slings cool remixes of classic sandwiches including conti rolls, chicken-schnitty subs and an ode to the Sausage McMuffin.

35 Market Street, Fremantle

Cafe Pastel

Shop

There are only two things to buy at this little bakery: coffee and picture-perfect Portuguese custard tarts, baked fresh every 15 minutes throughout the day.

3/201 Northbridge Street, Northbridge

Nogi Lane

Cafe

At this modern neighbourhood cafe, a former Vasse Felix chef tweaks brunch classics by way of his Burmese and Indian heritage. Think eggs benedict with a cardamom-spiked hollandaise, sided with coffee by Five Senses.

308 The Strand, Dianella

Forklore

Cafe

In an unlikely former office space, the team behind Tbsp have installed yet another brunch destination worth travelling for. Here, the pan-Asian-style menu includes scrambled eggs with XO bacon, duck udon and a chicken Katsu sando hefty enough to feed two.

Suite 11-12 City West Centre 102 Railway Street, West Perth

Little Loaf Bakery

Shop

This offshoot of popular bakery North Street Store is located in the old Wild Bakery premises. Behind the tiny retail frontage is a substantial bakery pumping out award-winning bread. There’s an assortment of cakes, pastries and continental rolls to choose from if you’re not looking for a loaf to take home (but let’s face it – the real way to do it is to get a bit of everything). The coffee here is nice and strong, too – a good way to get through the carbs.

2/390 South Terrace, South Fremantle

Modus Coffee

Cafe

The Modus crew’s Victoria Park cafe expands on the original Beaufort Street shop in every sense. There’s more floor space and a larger menu. Go for breakfast and explore the “Stuff on Toast” menu – ricotta paired with guacamole and pomegranate in a luxe riff on avo toast, or roasted mushrooms with whipped gorgonzola and pickled pears. Pastries include canelés, galettes, and a cardamom and pistachio bun. Pair one with a coffee roasted nearby at the team’s East Victoria Park warehouse.

660 Albany Highway, Victoria Park

Soho Lane

Cafe

Soho Lane is the sister cafe to the CBD’s Little Soho Coffee Co and brings a much-needed brunch offering back to Mount Lawley. Coffee is a priority with a house blend by Micrology and rotating guest roasters on batch. Food-wise, expect to find cafe favourites (avo toast and fluffy Japanese pancakes, say) alongside New York-diner-inspired dishes such as a fried-chicken sandwich.

18/649 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley

Grain Bakery

Shop

A fourth-generation baker is runs this shopfront, where sausage rolls and pies are made to 40-year-old family recipes. On the modern side there are fluffy doughnuts, creative pastries and fudge slices.

19 Lathlain Place, Lathlain
