Forget greasy fast food, we like our take-away a little more gourmet in the Swan Valley. Think perfectly brewed coffee, delicious gourmet ready-to-go meals, artisan breads and fresh produce. Enjoy them at home or over a picnic in one of the many picturesque parks in the region. Whatever you're on the hunt for, here are our favourite options for food on-the-go in the Valley.
We’ve all had those mornings where you’re running late and desperately need a caffeine pick me up. Never fear, there are lots of cafes and venues offering takeaway coffee in the Swan Valley. Get your bean fix at Mondo Nougat, Taylor's in the Valley and Oakover Grounds, which is also home to Fiori Coffee. Can’t be bothered getting out of the car? Opt for drive through at Yahava Koffeeworks, The Naked Fox (formerly Little Albion) or Joey’s Swan Valley Diner, which mercifully stays open later than most cafes. In Guildford, Willing Coffee is the place for quality beans and batch brews. Don’t forget a take away hot chocolate for the kids.
