Sure, we might have giggled as teens every time we went past a Cockburn sign – but when it comes to the food offerings in this great southern land? With so many quality eats, it’s no laughing matter. Here are just a few of our favourites in and around Cockburn.
We’ll wax lyrical about Bread in Common all day long – so when they expanded their offerings to include Coogee Common, we couldn’t have been more pleased.

This connection to produce is reflected in their menu, which is tangibly seasonal – a lot of it is grown on the Common’s doorstep, after all. Scallop ceviche, raw turnip and coastal herbs is just one feature of the springtime menu, while mushroom tagliatelle with ricotta makes use of the garden’s greens.

It almost seems unfair how many ace eateries are along this one lil’ strip in Cockburn… As if the last two weren’t enough, it’s also the same place that you’ll find Congee House. This Asian
