With weekend markets and hidden laneways, it’s easy to see why Fremantle is one of Perth’s most treasured assets. Throw in some of the best chow around Perth and you’re in for a treat. So here’s my A-List of what’s worth eating around Fremantle.
Bib & Tucker is almost always a crowd favourite. And with amazing views and even better food, how could it not be. If you happen to miss out on Brunch here, the dinner menu is just as good, and the best part about it is being able to watch the sun set over the ocean.
TRY: Huevos rancheros. fried eggs, tortillas, smashed beans, avocado, feta, chorizo crumb, chipotle salsa, pickled jalapeño
Propeller is the perfect place for an early morning breakfast, or a lazy mid-week meal. After undergoing some renovations, this former bus garage is looking pretty fresh. The food here is a mix of Spanish and modern Australian, and the bar is fully licensed so you’re guaranteed a good time.
TRY: Za’tar flatbread with pumpkin, feta and dukkah egg
If you manage to find this hidden gem then you’re in luck, because they serve up some of the best treats around Fremantle. Grab a nice hot cup of coffee with a large slice of cake, and watch the day pass you by. You’ll feel right at home in this cosy little cafe.
TRY: Kale, brussel sprouts, charred broccolini, sugar snaps, beet hummus, avo, seeds, poached egg
Nestled in the Heritage Moores building, this cute cafe serves up everything from eggs to smashed avo and freshly squeezed juice in between. After you’ve checked out the artwork in the building, kick back in the sun-drenched courtyard, with a coffee (or two).
TRY: Sage pumpkin mash, burnt butter, spinach, poached eggs, turkish toast and walnuts
If the names of their menu items aren’t enticing enough, I don’t know what is. Duck Duck Bruce serves up some of the best brunch combinations you could ask for. And if you’re passing by around lunch time make sure you grab one of their salty pretzels that are sure to make anyone thirsty.
TRY: Vanilla pancake stack, sour cherry, orange maple cream, pecan praline, gingerbread crumb
No visit to Fremantle would be complete without checking out Bread In Common, unless you suffer from carb-o-phobia. The open kitchen sits alongside diners so you can watch the professionals carefully construct your brunch. The menu is designed to be shared and paired with their freshly baked artisan bread. #carbloading
TRY: Ricotta, broad beans, lemon, nutmeg, mint
Lined with greenery, Stacked Cafe will have you in terrarium heaven from the moment you step through those warehouse doors. This massive space functions as a creative studio, event space, concept store and cafe all in one. Good luck trying to leave without a new indoor plant.
TRY: Any of their baguette’s or doughnuts are sure to fill that hunger gap in your tummy
