Dôme is a franchise chain of European-style café restaurants based in Perth, Western Australia.

It has over 65 cafés in Australia, with most in Western Australia.[1] Dôme has also developed a number of locations in Tasmania and Darwin,[1] as well as internationally, including the United Arab Emirates, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Bahrain, and at the Hulhumale in the Maldives.


It was founded by Patria Jafferies and Phil May in 1990.[2][3][4] The initial outlet was established in Napoleon St, Cottesloe in 1993. By the early 2000s it was a significant player in the larger Australian market.[5] There are now over 100 Dôme cafés in seven countries.[6] The corporate headquarters are in Maylands, Western Australia.[7]
