Address: 77 West Rd, Bassendean WA 6054

This is our founder Kelly’s top pick—their favourite part is that you can text your coffee order through so you don’t need to wait in line (and the line is usually a long one!).

Last Crumb Cake Co. is famous (at least around here!) for its exceptional cakes and pastries, so much so that on weekends the queue is often mile-long up the street! Nonetheless, The Last Crumb Cake Co. is our team’s favourite spot when we’re chasing a sweet treat. Located riverside at the bottom end of town with plenty of parking, it makes for an easy stop for a quick coffee or a leisurely afternoon enjoying their famous desserts. Although, if you want to be in with a chance to score one of their incredible donuts, be sure to stop by before 10am (they sell out almost every day!).

  • Opening Hours: Wednesday to Sunday, 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM; Closed Monday and Tuesday
  • Outdoor Seating: Minimal, focusing more on a cosy indoor ambiance

The 5 Four Store

Address: 54 Old Perth Rd, Bassendean WA 6054

Our whole team love this spot for its story; the 5 Four Store is named after the reference numbers ‘54’, which are in the Bassendean postcode. The locals like to say “are you heading into the 54?”, when they’re asking if you’re going into the town centre. Deb & Michelle (the owners of 5 Four Store) decided this was the perfect name for their little cafe!

More than just a cafe, The 5 Four Store is an absolute hit among our team. Featuring not only delicious homemade food (with the menu always changing!) and incredible coffee, you can also shop for unique gifts, local crafts, artisanal products and some regular pantry items at this hidden gem of a convenience store. Just up the road from Palmerston Square, it’s a must-visit next time you’re in town.


  • Opening Hours: Monday to Friday, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM; Saturday, 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM; Closed on Sundays
  • Outdoor Seating: Yes
