Do lunch, darling, with the beautiful people at Atomic Espresso licensed cafe in South Perth – without spending a fortune.

The crowd on a recent Sunday combined bright young things with fancy-free retirees and middle-aged men in lycra.

Diners at Atomic

Everything we ordered from the counter – there is no table service – was a hit.

Hmmm, what to choose?

And breakfast menu

The burger ($16.50) was big, juicy and came in a quality toasted bun. It came complete with beetroot, as all self-respecting Australian burgers should, and was accompanied by crisp shoestring chips.

There was a decent slab of smoked salmon in my toasted Turkish roll ($10.50), along with lettuce, capers and cream cheese. If I were to get really picky, I would have sliced the salad onion a little more finely but it was delicious nonetheless.

While I had one of the better coffees I've enjoyed in Perth, Miss Three and her dad shared an iced coffee, which came with ice-cream covered in flakey chocolate. Yum.

The décor is modern with a hint of Eames era in retro mirrors and wooden chairs. The café has large bifold doors so diners sit in the 'outdoor' air even inside, but are cooled by fans. The café shuts at 4pm instead of 5pm if the temperature hits 37 degrees.

Pavement dining at Atomic

Atomic is close to the Perth Zoo and to walks along the shore of the Swan River.
