“Cafe on waterfront in Mandurah”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

The Merchant is an upmarket cafe on the waterfront serving excellent coffee and tea etc. Wonderful position sitting under an outside umbrella to watch the birdlife and dolphins on the waterfront Mandurah.

“A place you can always rely on.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Everyone says you cannot get good staff in Mandurah; The Merchant and Cicerellos don't seem to have any problems....why?? the managers are close to the action all of the time. Good coffee, good service, food is above average and although the seating needs some $$$ spent on it (dump the long seats and replace them if not already done so) the ambience is fine. Great outlook over the water...not sure about allowing dogs at the tables though- certainly NOT allowed in most other states in Oz.

“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We visit The Merchant once a month for Breakfast. It is always the same. I think this is a good thing as there is no disappointments. Beautiful, sitting at the waters edge. Average prices, so affordable. Very good coffee and service.
