Yelo was founded in 2009 with a vision to open its doors to the local community, providing quality healthy produce and a friendly welcoming service in a fun, vibrant location. Taking on the iconic run-down site that was to become Yelo Trigg, the owners Alex and Michael bought to life a strong passion to open a casual venue for the people.
Somewhere you didn’t have to dress up to go to, or book, or to pay through the nose for a specialty coffee. Combining a love of the surf, real healthy food and great quality coffee, the Yelo brand was born. Very quickly the Trigg community em-braced Yelo Trigg as the community hub to meet their friends and neighbours for a regular greeting whilst grabbing their morning coffee, paper or juice. The casual vibe, friendly service and quality produce became synonymous with the old surf shack on the beach that pumps out consistent quality coffee and homemade healthy food, all day from 6am.
The addition of Yelo Mt Hawthorn in 2012 saw Yelo take over another run-down, iconic site and bring it to life, as well as the Northern end of Oxford St. The Yelo brand expanded its mission to serve quality coffee, food and produce to the Mt Hawthorn community and still does today, everyday from 6am. In it’s newly reno-vated premises, Yelo Mt Hawthorn now has more space with an inside dining area as well as alfresco and courtyard seating. The once sleepy end of Oxford Street is now a bustling hub and quality dining precinct, with Yelo operating 6am -5pm 7 days a week, the Mt Hawthorn coffee and food scene is alive and well.
Since 2009, Yelo has been a coffee institution in Perth and still is today!
Yelo’s Brand is known for quality coffee and real, healthy food made fresh and ready to go. Yelo’s ability to create quality produce and consistent coffee fast, is it’s brand and the owner has designed systems to enable Yelo’s customers to text or pre-order and pickup, or to order and wait in-store.
