You're In For a Treat
I didn't have high expectations when a friend recommended the Millpoint Caffe Bookshop. When I went I hadn't so much as looked at the menu- which is why the whole experience caught me by surprise.
The small purple building is unassuming, sitting in the side of a highway that leads to bigger and better things. Parking is limited to about five spaces between the skip bins, and requires a bit of manoeuvring to get into. But despite all this, once you enter the cafe you'll be swept away.
The front entrance leads you into a bookshop full of oddball books, some lining the walls, others displayed on old tables. Worn floorboards and a couple of well stuffed couches lend an air of homeliness.
Down a step, the cafe is set in a covered courtyard. With its mosaic wall and stray leaves, it feels slightly closer to the Mediterranean than your average Perth cafe, and the menu doesn't disappoint. If you're going with a group of more than two you might want to book a table- it can get crowded.
