Osborne Park (or Osborne Paris, as we affectionately call it) may best be known as an industrial hub with its offices, furniture showrooms, and retail outlets. Yet, as the neighbourhood of the WA Good Food Guide offices, the area has some unique places that fuel the team from daybreak to dusk.

Coffee and Breakfast

There are plenty of places for coffee in Osborne Park, with a growing number of boutique specialty coffee roasters. So, coffee aficionados can get a serious caffeine fix and pick-up breakfast tailored for grab-and-go.

Coffee specialists since the 1950s, Dimattina Coffee is a pioneer of Australia’s coffee industry. Originating from Melbourne, it has an impressive HQ in Western Australia, with sleek modern décor featuring a large roasting area, coffee training room, and a café for dining. Their take on the classic Eggs Benedict is a favourite, with roasted herbed Royal Blue potatoes on wilted greens with a velvety chimichurri hollandaise.

Family-owned and operated for over twenty years, Darkstar Coffee specialises in single-origin beans, with a roster of farm-to-cup coffees, seasonal releases, and experimental blends. Their roastery has a front-of-house café and experience lab offering several courses for those wanting to hone their at-home brew skills and master their latte artistry, as well as training for budding professional baristas.

It’s hard not to drive by local independent coffee roaster Micrology without missing their bright building popping in blue hues. Inside, you’ll find an interactive coffee bar to see the roasting process at work and talk to professional baristas as they rustle up your brew of choice. With a single-origin espresso and pour-over menu, the grab-and-go food options are also hard to pass up. Our pick? The Halloumi BAP with warragal pesto, scamoza cheese and pickles. Save room for a North Street Cinny Scroll to satisfy that sugar craving.

Sugar, spice, and everything nice are what you will find at the Persian supermarket and café Saffron Global Groceries. Nestled beside Scarborough Beach Road, this hidden gem is worth the find, whether to stock up on genuine Iranian saffron (infused in their coffee) for home cooking or savour house-made Middle Eastern snacks – their baklava is hard to pass up. The colours and smells of the store will surely lure you back time and time again.


With a heady history of Italian settlers, Osborne Park is home to some fine Mediterranean fare. Gourmet Italian deli Montello On Main arguably makes one of Western Australia’s best Conti rolls, layered with slices of mixed deli meats, cheddar, fresh tomato, and lettuce in a soft, crusty bap and made fresh to order. Meanwhile, Arancini lunch bar specialises in Sicilian delicacies, notably its namesake rice balls stuffed with Bolognese ragu or mushroom and silverbeet, served warm and filled with melted mozzarella.

The Exchange on Walters is famed for its award-winning Pierogi Polish Dumplings. Handcrafted using traditional recipes that have been passed down through generations, fillings include porcini mushroom and sauerkraut, and sour cheese and potato; both are fan favourites. Served in the authentic Polish way with a side of fried onions and sour cream.

The irresistible allure of a bakery cabinet beaming with golden pastries is what you will find at family-owned Golden Bakery. From the precision of pastry rolling to the artful assembly of fillings, the team are dedicated to crafting pies that embody nothing short of excellence. Opt for a beef classic, or add a little spice with a Chicken Curry Pie. It’s more than savoury goods here. The Bee Sting sponge cake filled with fresh whipped cream and custard, topped with glazed almond flakes, is incredibly moreish.

Miss Pickle’s Lunch Bar is hidden in an office building at the western end of Herdsman Business Park, yet it is worth the find. Why? It’s wholesome dishes from their house salads and nourishing bowls with sunshine rice, crunchy chickpeas, spiced sweet potato and eggplant with Japanese dressing to sandwich selection (the Tradie Roll doubles for a breakfast bap). The focus is on seasonal produce, with their sell-out frittatas changing daily.

Though Seafresh Innaloo requires a quick border cross, it’s worth the trip for caught-that-day fresh sushi, poke bowls, and their noteworthy chunky seafood chowder – a rich and creamy broth full of flavour and loaded with fresh fish, prawns, and squid. The best bit? The condiment stacking – spring onions, fresh lemon, red onion and ground pepper. They even give you a slice fresh of Mary Street Bakery bread for dipping. For a takeaway, a pack of their signature seafood spring rolls work wonders in the home air fryer”.

For fresh pizza and pasta with good wine to match, settle into a seat at Casa Nostra Caffe. This European-inspired cafe is tucked inside European Concepts, a haven of Euro home design concepts. Its sunlit alfresco area is a go-to in summer, with a cosy undercover dining room ideal for all seasons. Their daily chef’s specials are popular with the locals, like the Marinara pasta or Diavola pizza, which hit all the right tasting notes. Coffee is a highlight, as are the gluten-free zucchini slices and salads made daily. Alex Serra’s meatballs are truly sensational.

Festival India brings the complex flavours, rich aromas, and vibrant colours of South Indian Cuisine to Osborne Park. An extensive menu of warming curries are all tempting. However, it’s worth also trying their signature Dosas, a unique South Indian pancake made from a fermented rice batter and black lentils stuffed with lightly cooked potatoes and seasonal vegetables to dine in or takeaway.

Friday specials 

Mane Specialist Bottle Shop is now fixing everyone’s end-of-working-week food cravings. Each Friday from 3.30pm, they host taco purveyor El Taco Guro in their Osborne Park kitchen. Tuck into authentic Mexican flavours with Carne Asada and Pork Carnitas, all wrapped in locally crafted corn tortillas. The team at Mane is no stranger to holding adventurous food pop-ups and kitchen takeovers, so be sure to check their socials for upcoming events, which typically run on Saturdays.
