Okay, we know Dome is a small chain out of Perth but we fell in love with it while in Western Australia. It made it very hard to go back to Starbucks in the states. The coffee is excellent -- lived on flat whites (which, by the way, are beyond anything you get in the U.S.). Family and friends told... More

First of all the staff: great 👍 Without exception over 1 week everyone one was polite,courteous, smart, efficient and had a smile - what a great team. If the middle aged gent behind the counter was a team leader- well done, he knew the business so well and got that queue moving so efficiently without a sharp word for dozens... More

We stopped by for lunch yesterday. Service was speedy and staff were polite. Cleared our table in a good time and was always available for assistance. The food is very basic but came out quickly and definitely filled the spot. Nice place to get out of the heat for a moment.

Sat outside, thoroughly enjoyed our fancy iced coffees and Dome provided a nice spot to sit and people watch and refresh before the trip back to Hillarys

We visited Rottnest on a stinking hot day, and really needed a place to get our 6yo and 8yo out of the sun during the middle of the day. Dome is a great place to have an enjoyable, cruisy lunch, with heaps of options on the menu for adults and kids. Possible the best fish burger I've eaten - super... More

Food is Ok but overall drink quality still lacking. Maybe they don't try hard because they feel they don't need to. Staff turnover is obviously high. It just feels like management only barey sticks to the McDonald's type model.

I always associate Dome Cafes with airports when I have little options to chose from for a quick fix, but the Dome Cafe at Rottnest Island I treat differently, despite the lack of competition and again, the absence of options. I love the new anti-seagull deterrents: the lateral chrome wires shielding innocents visitors from these unwanted, flying scourges! And I... More

Ordered coffees and scrambled eggs (still no gluten free bread on offer, despite other Domes having it). Not sure who made the eggs, but tasted like they were whipped with olive oil. Inedible. Sent it back. Coffee was luke warm. Two out of five is generous.

The day was extremily hot. We needed a shaded place. So go to the Dome. It is a kind of a bistro. You order at the counter and pick it up when ready. The salad and the BLT were good. But everything is expensive (as every where in Australia).

Thank B265
