You may be on holiday mode, but we at Scoop know you’ll be needing that caffeine fix to energise yourself for a day of cycling, hiking and snorkelling with the family. Rottnest Island has a quaint selection of quirky little cafés serving up frothy cappuccinos, creamy lattes and full-bodied americanos for all you busy holiday-makers. Our picks are situated at various spots across the island, so you can rest easy knowing a cuppa is always within reach.

The Lane Café

Jump straight off the ferry and head down the lane for a quality brew made with freshly roasted beans. The baristas at The Lane Café take their art seriously, so you’ll be sure to savour every sip. While you’re there, why not enjoy a wholesome bowl of their toasted coconut granola?


Lexi’s on Rotto

For those who love a bit of retro charm, Lexi’s is a 1970s refurbished caravan parked up near Wadjemup Lighthouse. Start your journey down the Wadjemup Trail the right way, and enjoy your coffee with feel-good hippy vibes infused into every cup.


Geordie Café

Pump yourself up for the swell at this breezy spot located right by the famous Geordie Bay. This café is also home to the Geordie Bay art gallery, so you can enjoy a cup of 5 Senses coffee as you admire the brushwork of local artists.


Dome Café

An institution of Rottnest, Dome Café has been serving up reliably good coffee and family-favourite smoothies since its establishment. Open every day of the week, appreciate the café’s unique location by sitting alfresco overlooking the Thomson Bay foreshore.
