Head on down to the Swan Valley for brunch
The Swan Valley is a perfect spot for brunch! Just a sort drive from Perth and even shorter from many suburbs, this is a delightful area full of street-side stalls selling all manner of goods!
If you do not like getting up early, then brunch is the way to go, and you can turn up around 10 am or even later to have a wonderful brunch in this delightful setting. The Swan Valley has so many excellent cafes and restaurants, making it the ideal place to go either during the week or on a Sunday morning.
Menu items range from traditional brunch of bacon sarnis or pancake stack, to creations like "baklava chia" and quinoa porridge.

12. COTTAGE TEA ROOMS
Where: 8560 West Swan Road, Henley Brook

This is a gorgeous little cottage as the name implies. We had the scones for brunch here, and I have written about this place here. If you like scones for brunch, they were excellent at this quaint place.
If it is a sunny day, their verandah is a great place to sit!
13. SLATE CAFE
Where: 12 Dulwich St, West Swan

This is a very casual place, and I have been here once with my dogs. The dogs even have a place to run around! The food was also good.
