Breakfast and Coffee:
Fremantle, like any hipster town worth its salt has a lot to offer in the way of coffee. Speciality brews can be found at Hush or the Gesha Coffee Co. But with a jumble of sofas and armchairs and a courtyard bursting with plants and herb pots, Moore and Moore can’t be beat on ambience. There is an art gallery and often live jazz giving the place a fantastic vibe and somewhere you can feel at home. Try the pumpkin mash or the honeycomb affogato for real indulgence.
Fremantle is a port town so much of the interest lies around the harbourside. Looking out over sailing boats is Little Creatures Brewery, a huge warehouse with brewing tanks open for all to see. The food is tapas style, great for sharing and of course best enjoyed with one of their famous beers. Alternatively you have Bathers Beach House, now famous for being WA’s only licensed beach. Enjoy cocktails and fish and chips from the luxury of a beachside table.
For the best food and some delicious mood lighting head to Bread in Common for dinner. With its rustic feel, hanging lightbulbs and communal tables the restaurant is beautiful inside and out. Get a few plates combining flavours such as squid and watermelon and enjoy with their fresh bread and innovative dips.
Fremantle boasts many pubs around town, great for casual beers and a pool, but if you want cocktails it has to be Strange Company. With an exotic cocktail menu, huge array of ingredients and alcohol the drinks are amazing, Feel free to order off menu if you fancy something classic, or if you’re feeling bold, ask the staff to whip you up something of their own invention.
