5 cafes for Mother's Day breakfast in Perth
The bright, inviting interior in this stylish North Perth café is just the beginning. The menu is small, but delicious (and when you're on to a good thing, why to complicate it?). When it comes to coffee, however, the team at Addison & Steele are passionate, constantly in search of the prefect blend.

5 restaurants for Mother’s Day lunch in Perth
Tapas! Our favourite way to spend the afternoon. Chat away, drink slowly, eat slowly. Or, if you would rather a more traditional sit down lunch (or breakfast, or dinner) Cantina do that, too. The menu is Spanish and Portuguese, the ingredients are always seasonal, and where possible, organic.
a: 663 Beaufort Street, Mount Lawley
p: (08) 93704883
