Taylor's Art & Coffee House is a great place for breakfast, morning tea, lunch or afternoon tea when you're in the Swan Valley.
Jude Taylor is a practicing Western Australian artist who reinterprets the essential character, strength, tenacity and beauty of West Australian wildflowers into bright, vibrant and dramatic hand-painted lino-cuts.
Inspired by the ability of Western Australian wildflowers to sustain life in a hostile environment and the hardy Australian bush women, who were both able to flourish in a harsh West Australian environment.
Now working with women in Indonesia, Jude has expanded her art into fabric and just like the wildflowers her products are a wonderful show of beauty and abundance.
When you visit the cafe, feel free to wander through the grounds and view Jude’s work in the adjacent gallery.Established lino cut print artist Jude Taylor exhibits her stunning West Australian wildflower and landscape artworks in the cafes adjoining gallery. More recently she has branched out into fabrics and wallpaper which is an exciting new medium for the renowned local artist.
Fourth generation silversmith Beth Linton produces unique bespoke jewellery and silverware from her studio located on the grounds.
At Taylor's Cafe we are passionate about fresh, organic food and quality coffee. We pride ourselves on offering great hospitality in a uniquely Australian setting.
Our menu and home-grown produce change with the season so there are always new dishes to enjoy.
A great place for breakfast, morning tea, lunch or afternoon tea, we provide the best locally roasted coffee and food around. We are continually improving our garden to try to sustain the cafe, composting our scraps for the worms and sourcing local fruit and vegetables to supplement what we grow.
Michael is the eldest of the four Taylor children. His natural ability for illustration and sculpture took him through a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Curtin University.
In his early 20’s Michael decided that his mother’s art gallery could do with a bit of extra energy and at the time there were very few places to get locally roasted coffee and thoughtful food, so he built a café. He probably didn’t realise at the time how well it would be received and just how much work it would take.
Michael’s ideal for a sustainable café has seen him planting vegetables on the 4.5 acre family property. The garden is increasingly providing much of the cafes daily produce and is a constant source of joy for Michael and the staff.
Owners Michael and Caroline Taylor, a brother and sister duo, were raised in the Swan Valley along with their two other brothers by their artist mother and scrap metal dealing father.
A visit to Taylor's is a must for a true taste of the Swan Valley.
