“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Good reliable savouries and treats. Sometimes the 'deconstructed' style can be a bit lazy/annoying though.

“Great location, worthy of much better service and food quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

Stopped going here after too many disappointing experiences. Have some friends who live in John St who have also given up on this one. maybe the problem is they are relying on the location rather than providing the level of food and service that brings people back?

“Gluten free options near Cottesloe Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

I always enjoy going to the John St Cafe - it has that relaxed beachfront feeling, with a gourmet kick to it.

As its very popular, get in early. Street parking isn't too hard to find.

The staff are super friendly, service excellent and for the gluten intolerant like myself, there were plenty of options which made this a very enjoyable experience.

“Lovely cafe in a quiet street near the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

John Street Cafe is an institution for locals. Good breakfast and lunches, nice coffee and friendly staff.

The only down side is that it does get busy. But if you can find a table out the front under the towering Norfolk Pines you will be in such a nice little spot to share the lovely ambiance of this great little cafe.

“A solid go to breakfast spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

You've got to wait a bit in the summer, as it's really popular, but the food is good, staff know what they're doing and it's a nice venue. An easy go to if you're not keen to risk a crappy breakfast!
