Cafe/Gift Shop

The Foundation’s Café and Gift Shop was opened in 1999 at King Edward Memorial Hospital, Subiaco. 


Located in the main corridor of the hospital the WIRF Café provides a friendly and warm atmosphere for mums-to-be, new mothers, visitors and staff to relax and enjoy the freshly made drinks and food on offer. Gourmet bread rolls and calzones are just a few of the fresh delicious choices made daily by our volunteers.
As well as a range of teas our baristas can serve up short blacks, flat whites and frothy cappuccinos and there's also a tempting selection of mouth-watering fresh cakes, pastries, muffins and decadent slices to choose from. 
The WIRF Café operates to the Healthy Options WA: Food and Nutrition Policy for WA Health Services and Facilities.
