REVIEW: Bus Stop Cafe

I just love how far Perth’s creative culinary scene has come over the past couple of years. Not that long ago, there is no way we would have seen a decked out bus, parked on the beachfront serving coffee and food to passing road and foot traffic. Today though, Bus Stop Cafe is exactly this.

An old bus has been fully refurnished and reinvented into an awesome roadside cafe. Fitted with a fully functioning kitchen and barista station, half of the bus is the staff hangout and workspace while the other half is appropriately fitted out with old bus seats, stools and a surfboard bench top. The perfect spot to gaze out the open windows at the big beautiful blue.

Bus Stop Cafe does what it can to quench that thirst and provide a little relief from our beating sun. The cafe offers a range of food and drinks. Hot coffee is certainly a favourite, however there are plenty of other warmers. Teas and hot chocolates for the up and coming winter days, and for those hot summer days a cold pressed juice or in house smoothie couldn’t possibly go astray.

The cafe serves a small breakfast menu featuring toast, granola or a hearty bacon and egg burger for that post surf feast. Wraps and salads are where it’s at for lunch. There are also all day sweet treats to be enjoyed. The cafe sources as many local products and ingredients as possible, to ensure you are getting the freshest meals possible. I think it’s fair to say, the cafe is nothing overly fancy, but it’s the perfect beachside local.

I certainly enjoyed my time at the Bus Stop Cafe. I happily sat with a friend admiring the view as much as I enjoyed my cafe latte. The coffee was rich and greatly appreciated.

Bus Stop Cafe is Open seven days a week, except public holidays 6.30am – 4pm during the week and 7am – 4pm on the weekends.

You can find them at 2 Curtin Ave, Mosman Park.

And they also do functions, if you prefer the bus coming to you…
