Before I start, I agree with the poster below that Vermont maple syrup is the gold standard for maple syrup. This little cafe is very popular. We went Saturday morning and there were a few people waiting outside for tables and coffee. When we approached the door, a lovely lady took our name and told us the wait was about... More

The Tuck Shop (btw if you typo out the T in Tuck Shop its uck Shop - and this place is not ucky! better fix that) The coffee was smooth and not bitter, huge meals and quick friendly service, can see why its popular as the menu is very different with good variety.

I regularly eat at Tuck shop (4 to 5 times per week) and cannot fault service or food. It's always awesome service, consistent food delivery and they only use the BEST products.

Myself, my husband and toddler had a lovely lunch at The Tuck Shop on our holiday to Perth. The food was fresh and tasty and the service was fast and friendly. We ordered tea and on recognising our Irish accents the waitress asked us if we would like Barry's tea. We were pleasantly surprised and happily said "yes". It was... More

Went here for a birthday breakfast on a Sunday morning. Busy but had a reservation courtesy of my daughter. Very friendly and efficient service - coffee as a starter, like any good breakfast restaurant should offer. Three excellent meals. Pancakes were excellent and the maple syrup is as close to the real thing (Vermont syrup is the gold standard) as... More

Reserved a table here for a group booking which was essential as this little place has line ups out the door on the weekend. Food was good, service seemed a bit frantic and several of our coffee orders were forgotten. Otherwise it's a buzzing place (little noisy when full) for a tasty breakfast/brunch.

Small little joint for breakfast and lunch. Had a lovely brunch here recently. The eggs were superbly cooked and the side of chorizo was delicious. The sourdough bread though was super tough.. My friend had pancakes with berries and mascarpone and enjoyed that too. Fantastic coffees. Like most of Perth a bit pricey however good quality so worth the money.... More

I knew the coffee was excellent, and then I tried lunch a few weeks ago. I had the cod fish and it was terrific. I want to go back and try everything. Well worth it.

Finding a funky cafe in the middle of Perth is a big ask as they are few and far between, but just outside the city centre is a gem of a cafe. Just over the railway bridge, through the art precinct and just past the TAFE campus is Newcastle Street. Bingo - The Tuck Shop is right there. It may... More

Nice brunch place. Reasonably priced. Walking distance from the main William street. Ordered 4 mains: morrocan meatball, grilled black pudding, pancakes & smoked salmon with toast. All tastes good, especially the pancakes & the grilled pudding is kind of an unique main. However, all the toast are a little too tough. Like the specials options, and the coffee & pastries... More
