The state government has announced six more local businesses that will operate at the new $75 million Yagan Square development, set to be opened next month.

Shy John Brewery and Yum Cha, Street Eats, Wheat Street café, Sue Lewis Chocolatier, Jersey Jack Gelato, and Honeycake will all be serving food and beverages at the new venue.

Wheat Street will offer Europe-inspired cuisine, Street Eats has street food from around the globe while Shy John offers fusion-style dumplings with local beer.

On the dessert side, Jersey Jack has handcrafted gelato, Honeycake specialies in Czech-style cakes, and Sue Lewis offers handmade chocolate.

The announcement comes after the government listed 10 Perth businesses that would trade at Yagan Square in September.

The new development, located within the Horseshoe bridge between Northbridge and the Perth CBD, is set to offer a range of experiences including food and drink options, a market hall, native gardens and a public art space.

Tourism Minister Paul Papalia said the development offered unique opportunities for small local businesses.

“The market hall will be a buzzing hub for commuters, tourists and locals and will be a very exciting place for morning coffee, lunch, fresh supplies or an evening meal or drinks with friends,” he said.

There are currently more than 200 workers onsite with an extra 80 subcontractors completing the final stages of the construction.

Planning Minister Rita Saffioti said Yagan Square would be a drawcard for families, tourists and locals.

“The delivery of well-serviced public spaces in close proximity to world-class public transport connections is supporting our Metronet plan to create connected communities for Perth,” she said.
