Foam Coffee Bar, Leederville

FoamFoam in Leederville remains a popular spot in this ever-evolving suburb. It must be doing well as it has expanded into the neighbouring space, and onto the footpath in front. Their website says it is Swedish-inspired. I haven’t been to Sweden so I’m not sure what parts are Swedish-inspired. Maybe it is the deer head on the wall, or maybe they copied a few menu items from Miss Mauds.

I went only for coffee, but the place was busy feeding a big crowd breakfast off the menu or from the selection of baked goods on display. I dropped in on the day of a street festival, and disappointingly they were only serving hot drinks in takeaway cups (I assumed they did not usually do this). It just doesn’t taste the same.

Sayers Review

Sayers, Leederville

Situated in the heart of Leederville, this is a popular cafe. Expect to line up on weekends for breakfast. They have been doing this for a while so they efficiently move people in and out. After only a few minutes wait we were directed to a cramped table, nearly sitting shoulder to shoulder with the table next to us. They certainly fill the place to the brim. The food did not take as long as we expected considering the crowd. The wait for the food was worth it. It is not the usual breakfast menu – take for example one of our choices: charred sweet corn and pecorino cheese croquette, poached eggs, beetroot leaf and beamaise. It tasted as good as it sounds.

Other Things You Should Know

  • open for breakfast, lunch, coffee
  • they do their own special coffee brew, which you can purchase.
  • there is also a sister store in Northbridge.

Oxford Hotel

Oxford Hotel, Leederville

The Oxford Hotel in Leederville is not a bad place for a drink since it has spruced itself up in recent years. We went on a Tuesday night to take advantage of the kid friendly dining. On every Tuesday night they have someone there (Cater 4 Kids) from 5.30pm – 8.30pm at The Brickworks Cafe in the Beer Garden, who can entertain the children while you enjoy your meal. In theory it sounds good, but you will still have to deal with your kids when they bored or need something to eat. As usual you will pay restaurant prices for pub service. The food was not anything special, and especially the famed burnt fig ice cream was very disappointing.

Other Things You Should Know

  • there are few rooms available for hire for your function

Cinnamon Club Review

Cinnamon Club, Leederville

We ordered two dishes, Malabar Prawn Curry which is a dish with prawns marinated in a south Indian style sauce with coconut milk and garnished with curry leaves. and Malai Kofta, homemade cheese and potato dumplings in a creamy cashew nut gravy. We had some nann bread too. Would not accept the Entertainment book discount for take-away, even though there was no mention of this on the voucher.

Kitsch Bar of Leederville Review

Kitsch Bar – Leederville

As the name implies, the Kitsch bar is a cool and trendy little bar that is hidden away from the main action of Leederville. For those who venture further up Oxford street will be pleased to discover this relaxing gem. Come for a drink of your favourite Asian beer or hawker inspired Thai food. The prices are a little expensive, but you are paying for a great ambience. If you have travelled through Asia, the sights, smells, and tastes will be very familiar.

Other Things You Should Know

  • Closed Monday
  • Tuesday Pad Thai and Chang Beer 5-10.30
  • Sunday Stroll 2-10pm

Siena’s of Leederville Review

Siena’s Pizzaria, Restorante, Caffe – Leederville

It may be authentic Italian, but certainly not inspiring. The Siena’s of Leederville restaurant has been serving authentic Italian food for a long time in Leederville. It is located on the main strip, and can be very popular, particularly on the specials nights (Mon-Wed) where most pasta dishes and pizza is $12. You are advised to pre-book on these nights. Another great thing about this restaurant is the children’s play area, located inside the restaurant with a big glass window so you can keep a good eye on the kids while you enjoy your meal.

Other Things You Should Know

  • specials Mon, Tues and Wed night
  • takeaway available
  • you can buy from the front of the restaurant Gelato made fresh daily

Royal Thai Restaurant Review

Royal Thai Restaurant, Mt Hawthorn

Good Thai should not be hard to find, but for some reason in Perth it is. The Royal Thai Restaurant in Mount Hawthorn, just up Oxford St from the main hub of Leederville, opposite the Oxford Hotel. Royal Thai serves excellent quality Thai food, which is not always easy to find in Perth. The husband and wife team David and Tuan provide fantastic authentic Thai cuisine with a warm friendly service.

Other Things You Should Know

Anna Vietnamese Restaurant

Anna Vietnamese RestaurantIt is an institution in Leederville, and it shows. Anna Vietnamese Restaurant is a casual eatery, quite old school but popular with locals. It can get busy at times, and is suitable to bring the kids or come along in a group. The menu is quite long, though contains mostly standard Asian restaurant fare – don’t expect any ‘pho’. There is nothing surprising on the menu, but if you choose wisely or go often enough you will find something satisfying. The restaurant is BYO, with two handy bottle shops in just down the road in Leederville.

Our Experience

At a recent visit Clare ordered one of the specials from the board, Cinnamon Chicken, which was chicken on the bone, which we did not expect. It smelt and tasted great though. The serving sizes were good, with three dishes ordered for two adults and one child we had extra took home extra. Overall the food was OK and we may go there again if looking for a cheap night out.
