Small but friendly and efficient cafe with excellent coffee and some of the best muesli - with berries and yoghurt - I've tasted. Visited twice in two days during our weekend visit to the city. My husband had a muffin which he enjoyed too.

Nice little coffee shop. There are several single origin coffees on offer, we've found them good. They also do a nice iced coffee. Owner and staff are friendly and efficient. Food is made fresh and is tasty and good value. I had scrambled eggs on one visit, spectacular! The chicken wraps muffins and banana bread are also very good. It... More

This place was such a good cafe when Vanessa owned and runned the place. Since the new owners took over around 18 months ago the quality of coffee has gone downhill and the service makes you want to go elsewhere

I must say this cafe is under rated. The coffee is great! Not bitter or sour like some of the reviews suggested.. And the best part.... They have decaffeinated coffee!!! Perfect for nursing mums like me who still craves for coffee :) Usually even for Starbucks latte I would drink it with less sugar but this, it's so smooth and... More

Came in alone - immediately acknowledged by the staff, which is always appreciated. Promptly served... Prices also very decent for often inflated Perth. Recommend the Chia pod - beautifully presented and rather tasty. Coffee was good - good crema on the top of my long black, smooth and not bitter :) Would visit again if in the area 👍🏼

Have had some excellent flat whites on couple of occasions from Bench Espresso during my visit to Perth. The staff are friendly and helpful and the recommended gua bao, citrus loaf and muffins are fantasic! Will definitely visit the cafe when in Perth!

Went on a coffee hunting trip in the city and tasted several highly rated cafes. This was highly rated and we agreed with the ratings. Ordered a piccolo with extra shot. Aromatic, great body and long lasting. Friendly service from the Asian lady.

Went for a relaxing coffee in early afternoon. Flatwhite had slightly burnt taste but muffin was good. Friendly service and two low tables and a long wooden bench.

This place gets great reviews so we went last time we were in Perth for lunch, we thought then that the coffee was only average (a little bitter and left an unpleasant aftertaste) and the food was expensive, not too fresh and didn't taste especially nice. This time we were in Perth we thought we would give it another try... More
