As part of the City's Buy Local, Shop Local campaign, we're showcasing businesses that make the City of South Perth a unique place to live, work and visit. 

Finding the perfect gift for every special person in your life is no small task. Fortunately, an easy stroll down Mends Street will have you ticking off your Christmas shopping list faster than you can say "Santa".

After breezing through a unique mix of gift and homewares stores, fashion retailers and boutique sport stores, you will be left with plenty of time to enjoy a bite to eat at one of South Perth’s best eateries.

Refuel with a mid-shop pit stop

La Patisserie

What could be more festive than tucking in to a raspberry and chocolate crepe while shopping for Christmas gifts? Artisan bakery La Patisserie is the place to stop for a sweet treat or freshly baked pastry to go.  

Health Freak Café
If you’re saving your sweet tooth for Christmas day, stop by Health Freak Café for a delicious smoothie bowl, salad or toasted quesadilla. Their turmeric roasted cauliflower bowl with pulled pork is also a must-try.

Dolce & Salato
The ultimate satisfying bite to eat on the go has to be pizza by the slice from Dolce & Salato. Made from traditional Italian dough and topped with fresh ingredients, you will not leave this place hungry. 

Toast to a successful day of shopping

Rambla on Swan
Sipping cocktails is best done with a view and Rambla on Swan has one of the best in South Perth. Located right on the foreshore, their newly renovated deck bar is ideal for a celebratory post-shopping drink or two.

The Windsor
A heritage icon of South Perth, the Windsor Hotel is known for its top-notch pub food and gorgeous beer garden. It’s the perfect place to soak up the afternoon sun after a busy day working through your Christmas list.  

Miss Chows
End the day in style at modern Asian eatery and dumpling house, Miss Chows. Try their fluffy steamed bao buns, tasty pan fried dumplings or choose a traditional Chinese main with a modern twist. Share plates is the way to go here – you’re going to want to try it all.
