While Manjimup isn’t exactly a Perth suburb, we wish it was, because it would be up there with Fremantle, Cottesloe and Subiaco as among our greatest. Its towering forests, untouched coastline, pristine rivers and amazing food and wine, mean there’s truly something for everyone in and around this pearl of Western Australia.
On the foodie dimension, surrounded by lush pastures and some of the most productive soils in Australia, Manjimup is fast becoming known as the “food bowl of WA”. A diverse range of high quality produce surrounded by a pristine environment makes Manjimup a must do on anyone’s culinary bucket list.

“What a great cafe to have in Manjimup. We enjoyed our delicious, healthy and fresh meals (Tuscan eggs and hamburgers were delicious). The coffee was just perfect and the kids meals were a hit. Wish we could pop back in for more of the amazing short breads, they are delish! The only thing better would be if you could open another Blue Tiger in Perth. We’ll definitely be back, we loved our visit.” – Claire Ryan.

Once in town, it’s soon pretty obvious why little wonder why this region is a foodie’s paradise. And with Blue Tiger Cafe as one of its jewels, we here at Perth Cafes are starting a movement to up & move Manjimup much, much closer to our CBD.
