Bench is a pleasant little coffee shop in Hay Street down towards Victoria Avenue, quite small, but comfortable inside –with the requisite benches, too! They also have a couple of sidewalk benches with stools and on a sunny winter’s day in Perth that seemed to be a good place to sit and watch the world go by as I sipped on my coffee.
The coffee proved to be very good – creamy and with just the right amount of bitterness – warm but not too hot.
They also do a range of cakes, muffins, wraps, toasties and soup – with the offerings changing regularly and written up on a blackboard.
The staff were friendly and welcoming, and service prompt and efficient. Good coffee, nice place all round.
