Walters River Cafe can boast about it’s beautiful location along the Swan River amongst Pine trees.  In fact it seemed most local families were here today having picnics, swimmings, playing volleyball and enjoying the Perth lifestyle. And nestled amongst the trees just metres from the waters edge sits Walters River Cafe with a wide alfresco area commanding beautiful views for diners.  The cafe has a very laid back and relaxed feel to it. Although there is some table service including waiting to be seated and meals bought to you, you still need to order and pay for your meal first at the counter.  I probably should also mention that directly to the left of the main entrance there is a kiosk where you can purchase drinks, ice creams and snacks and enjoy with your picnic or sitting on the provided wooden benches under the tall trees.

Walters River Cafe: Alfresco Dining

Without having made a booking we were lucky to be seated outside and over time the alfresco area was full of diners. The menu is quite simple and a little on the pricey side if I’m totally honest. I chose the Steak Sandwich ($27.50) which was cooked tender and perfectly complemented with the bacon and roasted tomatoes. The hand cut chips were divine; there is nothing better than fat, crispy coated soft potato chips tossed in rosemary salt.

My hubby chose the JD Club ($26.40) which was a definite 2 hand job to eat, not one for first dates! It  held well together despite the constant squashing to fit into his mouth and interestingly they used turkey instead of the traditional chicken in a club sandwich. His meal was also served with the divine chips.

The childrens menu sounded good but too much for our ‘Mr Almost 2’ so we ordered extra chips ($8.80) and thought he would eat some morsels from our plates. Unfortunately when the chips (not as good as the hand cut chips) arrived he declared them ‘mine’ and was not interested in anything else apart from our milkshakes. Our milkshakes ($7.70) were rather expensive and served in a tall metal cup which my hubby pointed out wasn’t even filled to the top.

Dessert was not an option after such a huge meal and our left overs were eyed greedily by a few seagulls brave enough to enter the alfresco area. I’d like to visit Point Walter again and walk the sand bar but i think we’ll take a picnic and use the kiosk next time.
