It’s safe to say we’ve all missed travelling down south and weekend brunches, so why not combine the two and enjoy a sit-down brunch in Margaret River?
As cafes are still restricted by how many people they are allowed to seat, either give them a call to check availability, or get in early to avoid waiting for a table. The team at the Margaret River Visitor Centre are continuously updating its website with cafés, wineries and shops starting to reopen in the region. Check out here.
Here a few spots open during the long weekend allowing you to take a load off and enjoy your meal.
In the heart of the Margaret River town, the beautiful lime green Drift Café sits just opposite Memorial Park. Open from 8am-1pm every day, they have just brought in a new winter menu, featuring a goat’s cheese tart and ricotta hotcakes. There is also a kid’s menu available the little ones. Seating is quite limited and there is a 1-hour time limit for dine in guests, so give them a buzz to check availability.
