In Subiaco, we are spoiled for choice when it comes to great food, excellent coffee, and vibrant arts and culture. Combining these exciting aspects of the Subi lifestyle in one place, here are some café art galleries showcasing the best from local artists while you relax with a coffee or café-style meal.
Jaffle Shack/ Rokeby Loft
On your next visit to Jaffle Shack, head upstairs to find a quaint gallery full of paintings, drawings and textiles from local artist, Karen Cavania. Known as Rokeby Loft, this little gallery is packed with personality and can be viewed over a delicious barista-made beverage (and jaffle) from the downstairs café. With its regular, guided art workshops and painting classes, this is a great space to meet up for some coffee, cake and creative expression with friends.
