Christmas has come and gone and the weather forecast here in Perth is expected to be around 39 to 41 degrees for the next few days to come, we never thought summer would arrive after a very cool November and December. How could I ever have doubt, it sure is warm in the Western Australian capital. The scorching sun during the day keeps me either inside in air conditioning or in the water.This morning we opted for the comforts of air conditioning at the beach!
Very few places are open on boxing day however Barchetta surely was, it is located at North Cottesloe Beach (next to the Blue Duck) and perfectly positioned for one to soak in that beautiful view across the Indian Ocean. The cafe is nicely positioned on the sand dunes, a perfect spot for coffee after a walk along the beach or a dip in that refreshingly cold water. The beach directly below is patrolled by fit looking Aussie lifeguards.
We sat on the terrace and ordered a few coffees, having consumed far too much food on Christmas Day we skipped the food menu on offer.
I could not fault the coffees at all, they were strong and temperature hot. The speedy service made us very happy customers as we both were eager anticipating for our caffeine fix. The staff were fantastic and even though we were only stopping by for a coffee, they made us feel so welcome. I can say as a result of the service today I do plan on returning to try the breakfast menu very soon, thank you!

Barchetta is open 7 days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I noticed they serve wood fired pizzas – a perfect dish for a hot summer day! Breakfast is served until 11.15 am. The cafe is fully licensed which means you can enjoy an Australian wine or beer watching the sunset or heck a champagne over breakfast.
Free parking is available along Marine Parade.
