Escaping to Wolf Lane amid a busy day’s work is quite delightful, and The Wolf Espresso is your landing place. It’s got such a wholesome feel that if you don’t make it your regular spot for the stellar coffee, you definitely will for the chilled, homely vibe. A great spot to go with coworkers for a quick coffee break, to hang out for lunch, or to read the paper in the morning, The Wolf is an absolute diamond in the rough.

As the name might suggest, Standing Room Only is not the place to go if you want to sit and catch up on emails. But, it’s definitely the place to go if you want some of the best coffee in the Perth CBD in a hurry. Keeping things fresh are their guest beans, which are brewed to perfection by the very serious baristas who have only one concern: keeping the corporates caffeinated. Speed through on your daily walk to the office, or grab-n-go when you’re shopping Murray or Hay Street malls!

Tucked into the Hay Street end of Shafto Lane, Hopper Espresso makes for a quaint little inner-city escape from the daily grind when you need that coffee fix. Offering up Single Origins from Humblebee Coffee Roasters, these guys also please crowds with their tight little morning special—$10 brekky burger + coffee!

If coffee with a serious twist is your thing, Little Angel is your new favourite spot. But, if things like liquid nitrogen affogato aren’t your thing, don’t worry: their Five Senses Coffee brews come in more traditional and still finely crafted forms too. With a spacious seating area and a welcome atmosphere, Little Angel is a good choice for coffee meetings and catchups too!

Barrack Street

It can be seriously hard to tell the riff from the raff on Barrack Street sometimes, but don’t let that stop you from visiting Milktooth Coffee Dealers, who are brewing up some very fine coffee from Toby’s Estate beans. Their $8 coffee + breakfast wrap deal on Fridays is also something to behold—you’ll be hard pressed to find a better deal than that on your way to work. Enjoy!

Extremely hard to miss, perched brightly on the corner of King and Hay Streets, Graffiti is keeping the busy bees of the Perth CBD happy with quality coffee and seriously tantalising takeaway food. There might be lots of places to get a good coffee in the city these days, but at Graffiti you can get your coffee with a flippin’ Portuguese tart alongside it—which is pretty hard to beat. BTW, your Portuguese tart fits perfectly on your cup lid, so it’s the perfect caffeine/sugar hit for peeps on the go!

Bringing the sweet smell of coffee beans roasting down to the eastern end of Hay Street is Bench Espresso, who offer up espresso and filter mostly takeaway. Enjoy your quality cup with a great view of the recently finished mural by street-artist Rone just across the road.

Wolf Lane

Sourcing their beans from Melbourne’s Proud Mary Coffee and Perth local’s Loaded Craft Coffee Roasters, Telegram Coffee's central location isn’t the only reason this place keeps busy. Sip on delicious coffee from your pretty pink cup (these babies are a reference to the building’s history of housing the GPO, from where many an important telegram were sent), then wander through the iconic Postal Hall to start your day out with a good dose of beauty.

So before you settle for another too-hot, bitter excuse for a coffee with burnt milk, here are all the places to get the best coffee in the Perth CBD.
