The Kiwi Connection

Every now and then one can walk into a café and feel totally welcomed and appreciated. Two new owners Natalie Doyle and Perry Seymour of The Lonely Café in Midland indeed understand the concept of hospitality.

In fact, once people realize this café, although small is ready to make ones stay special, Natalie and Perry will wish they had bigger premises to match their ever-growing list of customers.

Indeed, endeavouring to create an environment that brings the community together is a focus of The Lonely Café. Local workers, mums and bubs, tradies, long lost Kiwis, or those simply wishing to chill out, this café is a place to visit.

Quality coffee is supplied by award winning Sparkes Coffee Roasters with a selection of homely snacks available that will satisfy one’s tastebuds including a claim they make the best toasties this side of the black stump.

There is a real soul and amazing degree of compassion and understanding underneath the ready smiles of these two genuine owners especially for those that are doing it tough. They have adopted the concept of Courage Coffee. The Lonely Café acts as a safe place where those suffering the effects of depression deserve a cup of courage in the form of a coffee.

Midland now boasts a great triangle of community-based cafes The Lonely Café, The Crooked Spire, and Bolt Coffee with a common theme in all apart from their great service, food, and drinks, and that is live music. The only difference is that The Lonely Café size inhibits live music on site, but Natalie and Perry have their own seven-piece band named EnQue pumping out reggae, RnB and even Funk.

The Lonely Café is located at 9A The Crescent, Midland WA 6056 Mon-Fri 6.30am-2.30pm Sat 7am-12.30pm
