Conveniently located on Waratah Avenue, The Local is a place for all the family. 

Based in Perth’s leafy western suburb of Dalkeith, our restaurant, formerly Yabba Dabba, is a Cafe by day and a Restaurant at night. With all WA sourced fresh produce on offer, there’s something for everyone. Come dressed-up or casual — we provide a comfortable local place to wine and dine.

The Local on Waratah took over from Yabba Dabba in July 2018 and continues to be a restaurant and cafe for all the family - we changed the name to better reflect our relationship with the local community. 

Cafe by day. Breakfast is served from 7.00am to 11.30am Tuesday to Sunday. Lunch from 11.30 until 5.00 pm Tuesday through Sunday.

On Monday we open from 6.30 am to 12 noon, serving coffee, pastries and cakes. 

Restaurant at night.  Evenings bring a change of menu with table service for dinner.  Our dinner menu, using all WA sourced ingredients, starts at 5.00, with last orders at 9.00 pm - available Tuesday through Sunday.

Pizza.  Our extensive Pizza menu is available from 12 noon Tuesday through Sunday (except public holidays). Take-away available.

Kids.  We look after the little ones with a special menu for the under 12 year olds.  We have colouring books for these budding artists to create while dining.   

B Y O  Wine.  While our restaurant has a full liquor licence, with an extensive wine list, we do cater for those who wish to bring along a special bottle for Lunch or Dinner.

Enjoy Free BYO for wine only on Tuesday and Wednesday - we have a $10 fee per bottle wine only, on all other days.
