A delightful child-friendly cafe in the leafy Perth hills
I always feel like I am driving through another state when I head to Roleystone in the Perth Hills. With its stunning, leafy surrounds and idyllic atmosphere, it feels like a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Oh, and you may find a hidden gem or two around the next corner.

Orchard Espresso in Roleystone


Orchard Espresso is one such hidden gem in Roleystone. Not only do they serve delicious coffee and absolutely delightful coconut and raspberry bread, they are also child-friendly.

The cafe has a welcoming feel to it.


While I'm always on the lookout for a good child-friendly cafe, this time the child friendliness was a bit lost on me – my three-year-old toddler wasn't with me and the baby was sleeping, meaning a rare moment of peace for me to enjoy a hot coffee. Ahhhhh.....

A hidden gem in the Roleystone hills!


We visited on a rainy day and it was pouring so bad that the pram and rain cover was soaked during the 25-second walk from the car to the cafe. I apologised to the staff for my dripping stroller but they didn't bat an eyelid and welcomed us in. Phew!

Delicious coffee!


I had a look at the menu before decided on the coconut and raspberry bread with homemade lemon curd and a cappuccino. Lemon curd didn't sound very appealing but I gave it a whirl. They have 'sweet' and 'savoury' options rather than a traditional breakfast or lunch, including hotcakes, baked eggs and cheesy cornbread.

The coconut and raspberry bread with the lemon curd. Yum!


I sat right next to the kids play area in case the baby woke up. The play area has a selection of toys and puzzles, plus a chalkboard and chalk.

The coffee was served quickly but the bread took a little longer. I thought they had forgotten about me at one stage but eventually, it appeared in front of me.

Did I say lemon curd didn't sound appealing? Well, wasn't I wrong? It was one of the most delicious things I've eaten in a long time. It actually took me back to my childhood, when I would eat lemon curd tarts that I'd clearly forgotten about. Oh did the memories come back. The bread was delicious but I couldn't get enough of the lemon curd. Yum!

The children's play area.


The coffee was fantastic too – not bitter or burnt, just right and served with a smile. I had just downed the last of it when the baby woke up. She had a little play with some of the baby toys and it was time to go. No doubt, the next time we visit I will have my toddler with me, so we will get more use of the play area and will try another delicious sweet bread.
