Feral Brewery is an oldie and a goodie. Known for its extensive beer list and warm winter shares, there's plenty of great reasons to make Feral's a day-cation. Choose from dishes like "trussed pork belly", "roast root veggies" and "beef-fat potatoes" (if you can) and pair with some tasty beers for an afternoon feast.
Miami Bakehouse is synonymous with trips to and from the south Western Australia region. It might not look like much, but this bakery holds the key to happiness in their pies and pastries. Located in Mandurah, Melville and on the Forrest Highway, Miami Bakehouse is famous in Perth for its meat pies and decadent cream-filled anything.
