Many patients looking for the best organic suppliers ask me, “Where are the best organic cafes and shops?”. A naturopath’s foundation treatment really needs to pivot on a clean, nutrition dense diet, so here are my Top 15 list!
Perth’s organic food scene is noticably picking up momentum (compared to Melbourne and Sydney anyhow!) so I’ve tried my best to include the current best.
Here they are :)
15. Nature’s Harvest
Cozy and warm place. They often have products that you might not usually find in other shops. This health food shop and cafe is indeed serves juice, coffee, green tea while you shop.

14. Manna Health
Manna wholefoods in Fremantle was one of the first “real” organic experiences in Perth. Manna is an oldie but a goodie with a naturopath room at the back. Compared to Melbourne or Sydney, Manna was up there in a decade ago with their range and loose seeds, sauces and raw ingredients for your kitchen cooking needs. It’s still an awesome cafe and shop, although there are many more that have opened throughout Perth that rank higher up the Top 15 list :)

13. Solomon’s Cafe
As they say on their webpage, Solomon’s is based around catering for all walks of life regardless of beliefs and needs. This means you can be sure your friends can all enjoy the food whether vegan, vegetarian, raw foodie, paleo, allergic, food sensitives, GAPS follower or even a big meat eater. They are more “healthy” rather than strict organic.

12. Organic on Charles
This is probably the best stocked organic shop in Perth. If you have something on your list for your superfood cooking and can’t find it, these guys are sure to have it. You could consider this place a naturopathic pantry :)
The only complaint I have heard is that you walk out spending a little more than you expected due to the amount of great stuff!

11. Precious organics
It’s your one stop organic shop with everything organic that you’ll need just down from Garden city in Booragoon. Super close to the fish shop too so you can grab your seafood supplies in the same trip!

10. Perth City Farm and Cafe
This is a weekend-only market and cafe that offers fresh produce and awesome nutrition-rich, organic cafe food. There are gardens to stroll through and chickens to feed.
There is even a mulberry tree that the kids can climb on and get their clothes stained in juice if you are lucky to visit when the tree is fruiting.

9. Health Freak Cafe
There are now 3 locations around Perth, along the similar lines of Grill’d burger. Although not 100% organic, they are good for a fun, “healthy” meal out. There is currently one in Mt Lawley, Joondalup and Scarborough. Visit anytime for breakfast, lunch or dinner for you paleo style eating meals. Fresh salads, protein-rich goodness and smoothies and juices.

8. Organic Collective
This is a home delivery service for fresh fruit and vege naturopath needs. They are based in Hamilton Hill (South of the River). Although not a place you can check-out, they are a great source of organic produce to make some yummy dishes in your home, without the need to leave.

7. The Raw Kitchen
One of Fremantle’s (and Perth’s too) best when it comes to clean and healthy eating. They have become so popular that they moved to a bigger location. Staff are helpful and courteous, with a continuous flow of mouth drooling raw foods that will have you saying, “I didn’t think raw food
could taste so good!”

6. The Organic Circle
This little gem is up towards the hills in Armadale. It’s a business run with heart and a solid core philosophy of bringing real food to the community.
The shop includes a load of handmade produce glowing with heart and love that you can feel.
They even have raw food cooking classes that run throughout the year.

5. Dunn & Walton (f.k.a. Absolutely Organic WA)
A great variety of fresh and dry produce for people living near Doubleview. They even do home deliveries on Wednesdays in a chilled van to keep your organic goodies cool and fresh upon delivery.
It might be better to order your produce for delivery because if you go there you are going to spend more than you wish on the cafe temptations!

4. Alive Organics
This large shop in Morley have a really good range of everything organic. They have a cafe and you can order things online too for you convenience.

3. Loose Produce
Good prices for wide range of healthy products in Como. Loose Produce also offer Yoga classes 7 days a week for a truly holistic organic experience.

2. The Green Bean Store
Over in the east side of Perth, this store has your organic products plus a cafe combined. The food is really fresh and they have a great range. The cafe food includes an awesome range of raw food, vegan and vegetarian delights that will make your mouth water.
This place makes the number 2 position because they are truly organic and use seasonal, 100% organic ingredients (except for free range chicken and some bacon). Do yourself a favour and visit them!

1. Peaches Fresh in Fremantle
This is my all time favourite for a large range of wholefoods, quality foods and friendly staff. There is an excellent selection of organic meats and organic vegetables too at very affordable prices. There is a really diverse selection of snacks too for healthy children.
