When my wife and I found this little place it immediately looked appealing to us. We found the food excellent and staff polite. Unfortunately we waited 35 minutes for our sweet to be told they had run out of what we ordered when the staff member had recommended this particular sweet to us in the first place. We chose an...

Had the most fabulous macaroni and chips from here, the Brown Sauce finished it all off. Gutted I was too full for a piece of cake but it just means I'll have to come back and try some! Lovely warm and friendly atmosphere and would definitely recommend! Thank you very much!

Went to small talk for the second time and it really is a hidden gem. The food is faultless, fresh and good quality. The scones are out of this world, the best and only white chocolate and raspberry scone I have ever tried! The staff were friendly and accommodating especially the man as he gave us suggestions on what to... More

Lovely frontage welcomes you in. Love the pictures on the walls and the tables - really interesting photos of old Perth. Food is excellent - best carrot cake we've ever had. Been a few times and always excellent service - nothing is too much trouble. Chef makes some of the best soups ever tasted too!

Returning to my home town for New year ( from Canada) my wife and myself saw Small Talk and decided to try it . We were immediately surprised when we were shown to a table and presented with menus. The decor has been tastefully done and clearly not done cheaply. Excellent quality of food (locally sourced) I had a cooked... More

Very traditional, with grand paintings and big mirrors - this old fashioned traditional tearoom is just what anyone wants if they want to appreciate the British culture, With a wide tea menu, lots of home baking and lots of hot food, this place clearly offers more than tea. The crockery is something else though - mismatched teacups, shiny teapots and... More

Stumbled across this tea room,and so glad we did . We only went in for a coffee but ended up having scones and cakes. The carrot cake was to die for ,it was so moist. Found out they also do meals ( which looked really tasty ). We will be back to have a meal soon.

We visited for lunch on a rainy Sunday afternoon. The host is absolutely excellent striking exactly the right balance of attentiveness. Lovely place with bone china crockery and silver tea pots. We had soup and sandwiches which were delicious. Soup was butternut squash with a hint of chilli. My husband was so impressed that he asked for the recipe -and... More
