The Wharf, Port of Broome. Up-beat seafood diner with a good wine list and an out­door court­yard over­look­ing the port. Slip­per lob­ster, a rare find, is avail­able here.

The Old Zoo Cafe, 2 Chal­lenor Drive, Cable Beach. Cal­i­for­nian cool, across the road from Cable Beach.

Club Restau­rant, Cable Beach Club Re­sort, Cable Beach. A fine diner with a good lo­cal rep­u­ta­tion. Pearl meat is in­cluded on the menu. www.ca­ble­beach­club.com.

Matso’s Broome Brew­ery, 60 Hamer­s­ley St. Rightly renowned for its mi­cro-brewed beers and its set­ting, but the food and ser­vice are less in­spir­ing. Try the Smokey Bishop dark lager. www.mat­sos­b­roome­brew­ery.com.au.

The Ice Cream­ery, Carnar­von Street, Chi­na­town. The house-made co­conut ice cream is a spe­cialty.

Pearl Lug­gers, 31 Dampier Tce. Reg­u­lar tours and evening events in­clude pearlmeat tast­ing. www.pearl­lug­gers.com.au.

Broome’s busy Satur­day morn­ing mar­ket sells green paw paw, kaf­fir lime leaves, yam beans and as­sorted Asian greens. Those in the know get there early. The most pop­u­lar lines sell out quickly.
