I have a slight obsession with Burns Beach Café! That’s where you’ll usually find me on a sunny day getting my afternoon coffee and ocean fix.Burns Beach Café is situated right next to Burns Beach and opposite a playground with a large grassy area.
It’s a popular spot for families, coastal walkers, beach goers and dog owners and although there is a large car park it can sometimes prove difficult to find a spot on a gorgeous day. The café is very rustic and serves a broad range of food, drinks, ice-creams and slushies. There is plenty of alfresco seating available. We enjoy sitting on the front tables which offer an unobstructed view of the ocean and are right next to a small grassy area which is perfect for the kids to run around.If you are accompanied by young children you could grab a takeaway coffee and an ice-cream and head over to the nearby playground which is just across the road. Unfortunately, the café doesn’t offer a takeaway food menu.It’s a great spot for breakfast. Indulge in a full breakfast, buttermilk pancakes with a chocolate orange sauce or a Spicy Three Bean Tagine with baked egg, goat’s cheese and sourdough. A kids breakfast menu is available which includes Hotcakes with maple syrup and ice-cream, a big kids breakfast or a mini ham and cheese croissant.The lunchtime menu is extensive and offers delights such as Duck Tacos, Bucket Tandoori Lamb Ribs, SA Coffin Bay Oysters, Slow Roasted Pork Belly with garlic mash, baby carrots and caramelised apple cider jus and Pulled Pork Roll, red cabbage and Apple Slaw with chips, to name just a few. You’ll also find a few daily specials listed on the chalk board inside.As well as a display cabinet full of delicious cakes.A firm favourite of mine is the Vineyard Platter, designed to share, which includes Margaret River Cheddar, King Island Double Brie, Smoked Leg Ham, Prosciutto, Chicken Liver Pate, Pickled onions, quince paste, hot mini loaf, seasonal fresh fruit and julienne veg. The serving is very generous and I’ve always found the food to be great!There is a small kids menu which offers Homemade Sausage Rolls and chips, Grilled chicken with a garden salad, Cheeseburger and chips or Snapper, chips and salad. All are generous portions and reasonably priced. I usually get one to share between my two children.
The café is extremely dog-friendly. Dogs are welcome in the front alfresco areas of the café and can even order from their own ‘Doggy Num Yum’s’ menu which includes treats such as Doggy Pupsicle, Porky Ears or a Beef and Vegetable Stew. All meals are served with a complimentary bowl of chilled water. Burns Beach Café opens in the evening from 5pm on Fridays and Saturdays. It’s a perfect spot to bring along a bottle of wine (the café is BYO) and watch the sunset on a ‘Perth-fect’ day. Bookings are recommended for the evening. Burns Beach Cafe is located at 35 Ocean Parade, Burns Beach.
