See a different side of Perth at restaurants in Highgate. Perth is a city that has never been short on space to grow and, as a result, most of its suburbs are spread out over vast swathes of land. Highgate, by contrast, has a bit of a cosier vibe. Narrow, walkable streets and an abundance of independently-owned shops, cafes and restaurants here give Perth Highgate a strong sense of closely-connected community. The area’s main artery, Beaufort Street, is crowded with storefronts you’ll want to drop into, including some of Perth Highgate’s best restaurants while side streets host plenty of quieter cafes and eateries.
