9 Perth Eating Spots To Take Dad This Father’s Day
Pop a reminder in your phone now – Sunday 2nd of September is Father’s Day in Perth.
Whether you know a new Dad, an old Dad or an absolutely crazy Dad – every father, pop and grandfather deserves a bucket full of love this Father’s Day. Or in our opinion, a big plate loaded with delicious tucker. And maybe a beer or two if he’s lucky.
So we’ve sent our hungry minions out to scour the city to find some of the best places to take Dad for a meal in Perth on Sunday the 2nd. Then again, we are sure a day at home with one of our Father’s Day Hampers would also make Dad one happy man!
Here’s our picks for great Perth eating spots for Father’s Day this year:
1. Steins and Bratwurst at Elmar’s in the Valley
The best bit about this venue is you can pay them to organise a present for dad too. Therefore, you’re taking him out to lunch or dinner AND giving him a present. Talk about truckloads of brownie points! Elmar’s Brewery in the Swan Valley is Perth’s largest German establishment and for Father’s Day they have both a lunch and dinner seating. For $65 extra they’ll wrap up a five litre mini-keg of Ein Stein Pilsner and two tasting glasses branded with the Elmar’s logo on and have it waiting at your table for when you arrive with Dad.
Places are strictly limited, so make sure to head over to Elmar’s website for further details and booking.
2. Free-Flowing Beer at Joondalup Resort
Seriously are any words sexier to a man’s ears than ‘free flowing beer’? The Joondalup Resort and Country Club is putting on a family carvery buffet with two hours of free-flowing beer, sparkling wine and soft drinks. Plus, there’s a chocolate fountain dessert buffet – who’s drooling right now?
If you’re wanting an earlier start, you can also try the Father’s Day Breakfast, with all the favourites like bacon, eggs, beans and hash browns, as well as a range of sweets and pastries. Whether you’re visiting for breakfast or lunch, there’s plenty of time to play a round of golf too.
