Decided after having coffee here many times it was time to go for breakfast. It was busy, and many tables were reserved. We ordered and our food arrived quickly with a smile and was scrumptious. Thoroughly enjoyed our coffee and meals. Top notch. Thank you Canning River Café!

Canning River Cafe is a wonderful companion to the Kent Street Weir. You can sit inside or outside, plenty of seating. Our pet dog was allowed to sit with us at our table and was provided with his own bowl of water. Service was great, coffee was good and cakes are fresh and tasty. A good thing would be a... More

We paddled from Shelley to the weir and decided to have a coffee. The service was prompt and the place was crowded. Interesting selection of cast iron teapots were for sale. The coffee is very good.

Told the teller that if was too hard to accommodate a simple request not to worry about... More

Wanted to try something different so yesterday I googled cafes near me & this was where I ended up for a late breakfast on a Monday morning, the location is lovely, I sat outside under the shade sails facing the park (which was only off putting due to the flies) The initial service was ok, seemed as though the lady...

My wife had the calamari, and I chose the hamburger, but the white creamy sauce was not for me. Dining is outdoors, so cold days are not recommended. Prices tend to be high for a cafe.

Spent about an hour there enjoying the view and atmosphere. will be back in the summer time to try it again. Service was friendly and... More
