Cottesloe is a beachside suburb with a heritage of pines. Cottesloe has gone very upmarket but the John St Cafe offers good food at reasonable prices. It's breakfast and lunch only, though afternoon tea is also served.. The cafe has a private dining room in the library for six or more, minimum cost $150, I had a chicken salad. My... More

Normally visit once a year with visitors from the UK. Cafe has been renovated and looks fabulous. Service is swift and attentive, although the plates were whisked away as soon as the diner had finished. Menu has changed since our last visit. Steak sandwich has shrunk and no longer hits the mark. Salads a little plain and missing some dressing.... More

Went for breakfast this morning with friends. An interesting menu with eggs in various styles, with additional accompaniments available. I had eggs benedict, with smoked salmon, which were delicious. The others in the party had scrambled eggs, and there were no complaints. We sat at a table on the pavement under the Norfolk pines, looking down towards the sea. Staff... More

What a refreshing cafe. Not ocean front but a view down the street to Cottesloe beach. Outdoor seating available under umbrellas Fabulous fresh juices and innovative all day delicious dishes. The best brunch menu which is available all day yummm. Service friendly and attentive. Pets welcome under umbrellas. This cafe has been consistently fabulous over many years. Don't miss it.

A delightful cafe set beside the Norfolk pines of John Street. We were lucky with parking on the street close to the cafe, and the service was quick and friendly even on a busy morning. Of the four of us two had the tasty bruschetta and two had different egg dishes and we were all very pleased with our choices.... More

We met up here for lunch and a catch up. Arriving at 12 noon it was lovely and quiet but by 1pm the crowd had built up. We opted to eat from the all day breakfast menu and the food was good - excellent poached eggs all round with various additions such as bacon or smoked salmon. There's also a... More

Had lunch on a warm Saturday in a lovely shaded spot outside, wait staff very friendly and helpful, and the food was superb, great barramundi. Not a massive choice but obviously they do it well. The flies were very friendly but would definitely visit again to try their breakfasts.

We had breakfast this morning at the John St café in Cottesloe. We arrived just after 7.30am & were seated in the shade next to the road. We have been to quite a few Mediterranean cafes overseas & this café rates really well against them. There were people of all ages and some must live nearby as they had brought... More
