There is a quirky little Italy-inspired café hidden in Perth’s northern suburbs, offering oldschool service, great coffee and a huge range of gourmet food.
*Update: Passione read the review and surprised me with a delicious taster platter! Scroll to the bottom to see it.
Everybody’s talking about Passione Gourmet Deli Cafe that’s located in Kingsley, a northern suburb not far from the turn off at Mitchell Freeway. Seriously, this place is gaining a cult following and for good reason. With their high quality in-house produce, impeccable oldschool style customer service and the finest delicacies imported from around the world – this cafe will make you feel like you have stepped into a piece of Italy while stuck in Perth.
I went there for the first time the other day and loved, loved, LOVED IT! The fun decor, gourmet food and sandwiches on display was so inviting and homely. Supporting unique and local Perth businesses is what my Perth Girl blog is all about, so naturally I wanted to tell you guys about this place. Check it all out below.
As soon as you walk into Passione, you get the feeling you could be in Italy. From the black and white ceramic tile floors and quirky layout, to the hanging prosciutto and salami and other homemade foods on offer; this little cafe deli is full of charm and infectious personality!
They have a deli display, gluten-free and nitrate-free salamis on offer, in-house baked hams, imported Italian and Spanish prosciutto, specialty cheeses including some amazing truffle cheeses, marinated antipasto, homemade dips and chutneys.
Passione does breakfast (shout out to their ham and cheese toasties), lunch and dinner. They are also apparently one of Perth’s biggest selections of cheeses, meats and antipasto, providing specialty groceries to help with your cooking.
Passione started with a small team in 2010 with a vision of providing Kingsley and the surrounding area with quality food, gourmet ingredients and fresh espresso style coffee. It is owned by David, a food-loving Sicilian, and Scottish-born Sandy; both coming together to serve fresh, quality homemade food and coffee.
The customer service here is awesome and oldschool. They strive to know customers by name and what their customers like.
Wonderful smells, delightful treats – there is such a great selection of cold meats available here.
Everything is presented so nicely here. The continental rolls are a popular choice here, as are their muffins and flavoursome salads.
Let’s talk coffee. Roasted fresh daily in Perth, Passione’s signature Gran Caffé blend has dominant flavours, consisting of chocolate and cocoa. It’s always served as a double shot – round and decadent, with a soft velvet feel accompanied by Bannister Downs milk.
Passione is a busy little spot every morning, as many come here to get their coffee fix before heading off to work. I rate their coffee highly – you won’t be disappointed. It’s smooth and just right.
So next time you’re passing by the Kingsley suburb, drop into this charming deli cafe and help support local business in the suburbs of Perth. Highly recommended. Enjoy!

David (one of the owners) invited me into Passione after my blog review got published to thank me for my efforts. After having a great chat, he surprised me with a coffee on the house and this delicious taster plate below. Wow, so thoughtful. Thank you Passione for listening to your customers both in the real world and the digital world. All the best! From Tahnee.
