Perched overlooking one of the prettiest of Perth’s 19 metropolitan beaches, the Indiana Tea House is central to the iconic vision of Cottesloe Beach.
Walking in there is an old-world beach charm with white washed Georgina wooden window frames that draw the eye to the magnificent post-card view of the Indian Ocean. It’s divided into natural nooks and crannies thanks to bay windows and elevate entrance that steps down to the restaurant. The double-sided open fire place and lounge chairs positioned adjacent to it add to the warm and cosy seaside feel.
Our visit to Indiana Tea House was for coffee – and it was so good I had two! The interior of Indiana I’ve loved, but the food has had bad reviews in the past. All recent reviews on Urban Spoon have been positive; hopefully Indiana is on the up. My coffee was perfect, could not fault it – and I’m extremely fussy with my coffee.
The reason we opted for Indiana over one of the other many Cottesloe cafes and restaurants is because it is quiet and it was a business meeting. So hearing each other clearly was important. It was lunch time, about a third of Indiana’s tables were occupied, and the audible level was not noticeable – a good thing.
Don’t you just loathe it when you in are in a restaurant and you can’t hear your dining companions talk, so a conversation becomes a necessary shouting match?
