prickly pear is a cosy and timeless cafe in the heart of malvern, around the corner from malvern central and only a short walk from malvern station. our food, whilst health-conscious, is still decadent, and is made in our own kitchen using the best ingredients. our baristas use our own house beans to make truly great coffees. we offer fresh pastries and baked goods daily.
apart from our indoor space, we have a bright, lush, and peaceful courtyard in the back.
the owners greek-cypriot background is reflected in many of their menu dishes and specials. coffee-making has been in the family for several generations and helen, the owner/manager of prickly pear, owned another successful cafe in nearby carnegie, 'figjam cafe', before starting prickly pear. she has a passion for great coffee and great food and shares that passion with her family and her loyal customers.
