Description: The site Barchetta now stands on has been serving refreshments to the locals and tourists for almost 50 years. First as a kiosk where children could get ice creams and beach-goers cold drinks and snacks. It then evolved into the North Cott Cafe and was "the" place for breaky by the beach. It became Barchetta in 2002 and now has a flourishing food, wine and coffee trade lasting from dawn until dusk.

“Great view overlooking the ocean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

We visited on a cold, wet and windy afternoon. Sitting behind the full glass wall, watching the crashing ocean, the perfect way to spend some time. We had coffee, with a rosemary & garlic pizza. Great coffee, even better pizza. Worth a visit, if only for the view.

“Barchetta by the beautiful beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

The "pork hock" Tuesdays is fantasmagorical. Like a moth to the light I am drawn to Barchetta at least once a week for an evening meal, and I am a lone travellor, hoeing into this mighty
meal.
Wonderful food, also, most nights, specials with a glass of
wine (you can order more!!).
Good for coffee mornings too.

“Great location, views, food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Stopped here for a coffee and muffin during a bike ride mid morning on a weekday. Enough people were dining both inside and outside to create good atmosphere. Weather was nice which always helps. Friendly service, no pressure, delicious lime and coconut muffins with coffee.

“Best Male Toilet View in Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Have been going to this cafe for the past 20+ years and it generally always provides really good service and food. The view across the ocean from the male loo is beautiful - perfectly framed by the little corner window - a perfect place to stand and contemplate the scenery and beach activity! For those unable to get into the loo you can always sit on the balcony and enjoy the vista from that vantage point instead - well worth a trip.

“Great view and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

My wife and I recently came here for dinner to celebrate our anniversary. There was a great sunset so we opted to sit on the balcony with the heaters. The atmosphere was really inviting and our waitress was polite and attentive. My wife had the Goat Pappardelle which looked amazing and tasted fantastic and fresh. I had the Whiting which was served with a tasty pear and parmesan salad. The whiting was cooked perfectly and the salad was full of flavour, while the home made chips added that beach side style that I have come to love about Barchetta each time I come to Australia.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is in Perth and the Cottesloe region as the view is incredible any time of the day. You can even have a casual drink on the balcony and just enjoy the view, no need to order a full spread.
