Thinking it's just another coffee shop? Wrong you are, Santi's is a dainty but modern Italian influenced café located on Hampden road near UWA. This cute little corner café is run by a mother and daughter team whose customer service and honest interest to talk to you really makes the difference. They don't just take your order and chuck the food onto the table, it is a heartfelt conversation with genuine care into what you are eating and drinking.
With freshly baked cakes and food made with love and devotion, it is terribly difficult to resist the temptation of these home-made sweets. Along with this is a large window filled with delicious wraps, rolls, baguettes and more to take if you are on-the-go. Then there is the large selection of dishes and drinks that excites you to come back for more each time. With the price range around $15 to $20, every cent is worth it, the combination of elements makes the visit so much more meaningful.
The décor especially the checked tiles with the beautiful lampshades really do it for me though, not to mention the table number frames with elegant quotes, a great conversation starter for sure. The modern Italian influence of this place just takes you away from the daily grind and puts you into a little bit of heaven, letting you escape from the daily grind.
With lots of choice, freshly baked goodies, a brilliant atmosphere and a lovely team, there is no reason to go anywhere else before work or for lunch. Santi's is the perfect place to catch up with friends, have a light read or to just take a break from the busy life.
