The Secret Garden

Home > Perth > Coffee | Cafes
Published May 28th 2012
The Secret Garden on Angelo Street in South Perth, is a perfect spot to grab a coffee or a light meal. The friendly staff and location (right on the buzzing Angelo street, next to a very luscious plant nursery) is a quiet haven away from the hustle and bustle.

Into another world.

The traditional cafe menu is reasonably priced, with breakfast ranging from $5.90 for New Norcia Fruit Toast to $18 for the Big Breakfast. For those who love their Eggs Benedict or Florentine they are also on the breakfast menu for a very reasonable $15 and $16 respectively.

Lunch consists of toasted foccacias at the $14 mark, kebabs again $14 and light meals which include fish and beef burgers priced from $14-$18. Sandwiches and rolls are all served with salad and chips for $12 or there is a Soup of the Day which is homemade and served with Garlic bread at a very attractive $10.

An appealing aspect of the lunch menu is not only its breadth but also it's large selection of salads as well as a Mediterranean section which feature Greek-style Moussaka, Spanakopita (spinach pie filled with ricotta and fetta cheese) as well as chicken or veal parmigiana.

There is also a Seafood Selection and all these meals are served with salad and chips. A Garden salad is $12 whilst at the top end is the mixed seafood grill for one which is $32. Most lunch meals are around the $18 -$20 mark. The Cafe is also BYO - corkage is $2 per person.

Beware of the desserts cabinet. The Secret Garden's luscious sweets will definitely tempt you! If coffee and cake is what you are after, the cafe caters to this demand with delicate miniature cupcakes aswell as cakes and other treats. Like the lunch menu the dessert menu has something for everyone. They are all homemade.

The Ice Coffee and Chocolate are homemade too, milkshakes, thick shakes and smoothies are on offer along with a traditional coffee and tea menu.

The Secret Garden has an outdoor area tucked away surrounded by garden - you really will feel like you have escaped the city. Otherwise there is a great view of Angelo street from the front of the cafe.

With lots of great gourmet food, home wares and clothing shops on the stretch, South Perth's Angelo Street is a nice alternative to South Perth's often frantically busy Menz Street.
