19 Best Breakfasts in Margaret River

1. Willow Grill At Stay Margaret River

There are so many reasons why I love Willow Grill so let me try and cover them all. One of the main reasons is because it is located at Stay, Margaret River making it one of the few accommodation places in town with an on-site restaurant. So handy!

Most mornings a full buffet breakfast is served for only $25! This is the best-value buffet breakfast in Margaret River. In the event a buffet isn’t offered the breakfast menu has so many delicious options including my favourites‘ The Belgian Waffle’ and ‘The Willow Breakfast’. 

The restaurant is comfortable and cozy with both indoor and outdoor seating making it the perfect year-round choice. Bonus, it’s open 7 days a week!

Fondly known as Margs Bakery. The original Margaret River Bakery is iconic. You’ve probably been here a time or two over the years but if you haven’t… you must. They are famous for offering some of the best eats Margaret River.

3. Drift Café

Drift is a local’s favourite Margaret River cafe breakfast offering consistently superb breakfasts showcasing seasonal produce and locally sourced ingredients.

I love Drift Margaret River because it offers some of my favourite vegetarian dishes like its smashed pumpkin bruschetta and its bircher muesli with the tastiest apple compote I think I’ve ever tried. Not only this, but it’s also probably the best brunch Margaret River.

Australia Travel Planning Guide

🚑Should I buy Australian travel insurance?

100% YES! — Australia has “free” healthcare but it’s only for citizens and permanent residents. Foreigners visiting need travel insurance in case anything happens on their visit. I like SafetyWing – their Nomad Insurance starts at just $1.50 USD a day!

🚗Should I rent a car in Australia?

Yes — Renting a car is a necessity in most of Australia! If you want to go on road trips or adventures outside of the major cities, and even if you’re staying in a major city, you’ll want to rent a car. If you are visiting Margaret River, it will be even more important that you hire a car, you’ll need it to be able to get around and see all the great attractions and wineries!

🏨What’s the best way to book my Australian accommodation?

My go-to for Australian hotels is Booking.com. Pretty much all registered accommodation use Booking.com (but not necessarily any of the other major booking platforms), and even most of the holiday homes and caravan parks use Booking.com too!

If you’re planning a trip to Australia where you will stay at multiple locations, it’s super handy to have all your accommodation listed in one place, and accommodation owners like Booking.com because it’s easy to contact the guests using the messaging platform if the guest has an international phone number.

I sincerely hope you enjoy your visit to Margaret River!
