How to satisfy your late night hunger pangs in Perth
Perth is rumoured to be a city where shop doors are shut at around 10pm and where it is notoriously more difficult to find a feed late at night compared to our Eastern brothers and sisters. However things are changing – there are now a few hidden gems in Perth that are open for the nocturnal folks operating on vampire time.
1) Little Village Café – 935 Albany Highway East Victoria Park

If you are cruising down the Albany Highway after midnight and feel the hunger pains strike, Little Village Café serves great cakes, coffees and toasted sandwiches from 9pm to 6.30pm on Sundays to Thursdays and 10pm to 7am on Fridays to Saturdays. I only stumbled upon this gem after buying a Groupon voucher. There is a different establishment during the morning and afternoon, the shop front is essentially shared by three businesses which is a pretty clever concept as this means residents can drop in for a feed 24 hours a day and treat themselves to different types of food. Little Village Café is run by an entrepreneurial and endearing grandmother working hard to make this café a success. Their toasted chicken sandwiches ($7) are delicious – next time you feel the hunger pangs late at night or early in the morning, make sure you stop and try them out.
2) Malt Supper Club – 677 Beaufort Street Mount Lawley
Predominantly a place to go for cocktails, Malt Supper Club serves food as well if you are hungry. Open from 8pm to midnight on Wednesdays and 6pm to 3am on Thursdays to Sundays, with a mature clientele, Malt Supper Club has private decorated rooms for functions. Their menu includes nibbles such as calamari, chicken wings, sausage rolls, arancini balls ($12 - $13) and sliders as well as a range of pizzas ($18-$19). Their drinks are interesting especially the teapot cocktails served from 6pm until 10pm on Fridays to Saturdays. These are served out of teapots and shared amongst 2-4 people ($25-$32).
3) Fast Eddys Perth – 454 Murray Street (cnr Milligan Street)
Fast Eddys is open 24 hours a day, 7 hours a week in a family friendly environment. If you are craving a late night snack and you are in the city, Fast Eddys is the place to be. Established since 1975, the theme of the café definitely reflects its experience and nostalgia. Its menu includes items such as poached eggs, mushrooms, bacon and eggs for breakfast ($9-$19), seafood options such as fish and chips, squid ring and chips, barramundi ($9-$26), steak and chicken options on the grill, sandwiches and pasta. To top it off, Fast Eddys also offers Asian cuisine and Mexican ranging from nachos, chilli con carne, curry to chicken teriyaki as well as a range of delicious desserts. They truly have it all. Gluten free options are also available. For more information, visit www.fasteddysperth.com.au/
After a late night at the Crown Casino, satisfy your hunger pangs with Asian cuisine at the 88 Noodle Bar. The venue is 18 only and it is open from Sunday to Thursday from 11.30am to midnight and Friday to Saturday from 11am to 3am. Their menu include Asian delights such as Teriyaki chicken with rice, Vietnamese pho, Thai red chicken curry, Mee goreng, Char Kway Teow, Singapore rice noodles and Pad Thai ($16-$20) with its food range spanning across a few South East Asian countries.
