There is a reason why the Margaret River Region has earned the reputation of being an epicurean’s paradise, with its abundance of food and drinks choices dotted throughout.

Whether it’s a casual café or fine dining restaurant, this is a part of the world where you will always find fresh, local produce that you can take-away and enjoy on the beach for a spectacular sunset, a picnic in the forest, or in the privacy of your own home.

We’ve compiled a list of our Top Takeaways in the region for coffee, croissants, bread, burgers, fish and chips, and Asian cuisine. We’ve even found the best spot to stock up on picnic provisions.

Best Takeaway Coffee

Commonage Cafe, Yallingup

This is the place to stop by if you are after freshly roasted coffee to take away with you on your travels through the south west. This specialist roast producer offers ethically sourced single origin and blended coffee beans from Colombia, Ethiopia, Brazil, Peru, Costa Rica and Mexico.

Yahava, Margaret River

For those times when you need a coffee on the run, head straight to the drive through window at Yahava. While it can get busy during peak times the staff are incredibly efficient at keeping things moving, without you ever having to get out of your car. And of course, it goes without saying that their freshly roasted coffee is delicious.

Gourmet Food Merchant, Cowaramup

The beautiful Gourmet Food Merchant store, located just off Bussell Hwy in Cowaramup, is perfect for ducking in to grab a coffee but you have been warned – the selection of local gourmet produce is incredibly tempting and it’s hard to leave without adding a treat or two to your shopping bag. Think a selection of cheeses made just down the road, fresh sourdough, and a range of jams and chutneys that will zhoosh up any meal. Coffee is by Margaret River Roasting Co.

Fishbone Wines, Wilyabrup

This boutique winery is renowned for its Japanese-inspired cuisine and its sushi-to-go.

The vegan Yasai and Inaki Maki rolls available at the restaurant are a particular favourite.

Best Takeaway Burgers

Burger Baby, Margaret River

The crew at Burger Baby sure do know how to put together a seriously epic burger. The classic flavour combos are all on the menu for the purists among us, or branch out and try their Japanese-inspired burger featuring karaage fried chicken, slaw, kewpie and pickled zucchini. They also offer the option to swap out the meat in any of the burgers for an Impossible patty, so that everyone can enjoy. All burgers come with chips (because, yes, we do want fries with that), and there are some great sides to add to your order – the sriracha butter wings are life-changing.

Normal Van

Normal Van is a popular food truck absolutely worth hunting down while you’re in the south west. American-style burgers made with fresh local produce is a winning combo, with chef/ owner Rob drawing from his experience working at some of the best restaurants in Canada to bring us authentic flavours that you’ll be dreaming about long after you’ve finished that last bite. Check out the Instagram page to find out where they will be parked up.
