Barque

10 August, 2016
Barque - Breakfast Perth

Recently I was invited to try the breakfast at Barque in East Freo. This little pocket around George Street is bursting with some great eateries! Barque is located down the end of the street and has a great set up. There is a huge outside dining area with distressed timber furniture and loads of cushions for comfort. Plenty of shade means dining outside in summer won’t equal third degree burns. Inside is a little smaller, but the heavy timber theme continues with comfy…

Young George

Young George

George Street in East Freo is this little foodie hub tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the main city of Fremantle. There’s a handful of cafes and restaurants that are all worth visiting, but on this occasion I was there to dine at Young George. Set in a typical heritage style building, this restaurant has a warm vibe and friendly staff to match. The open kitchen is great for watching the magic happen or to salivate from food…

May Street Larder

May Street Larder

I think I am the last blogger in Perth to go to May Street Larder. When the crew behind Bib & Tucker  spread their wings, people took notice. As expected, there was loads of hype about this place when it opened over a year ago. My excuse for not going was that I had just had a baby! I look back now and think it would have been much easier to go with a new born who sleeps in a pram,…

Bathers Beach House

Bathers Beach House - Breakfast Perth

I have never heard of a maccas closing down until it happened in our own port city. The glow from the golden arches cast a romantic light over Bathers Beach for young lovers necking after smashing some illusions shakers at Zanzibar, or Harbourside… or whatever it was called last.  Thankfully what has replaced it is much more snazzy than a mickey D’s! Bathers Beach House opened late last year and has offered Freo goers a place to eat, drink and be…

The Shipping Lane

The Shipping Lane Outside

Remember when Leighton Beach used to be the next crappy car park up from Port Beach? It has looked a bit more flash than that for a while now but I still feel like it is a foreign place when I drive around the windy roads with manicured gardens and towering apartments one can only hope to ever afford. The benefit to this development is the opening of nosheries that take advantage of the view and serve more than hot…

Chalkys

Chalkys

What images conjure in your minds eye when you think of the West End in Freo? Is it divey bars? Walls built by convicts? Or are you thinking “where’s the West End?”. It’s not last century anymore – west is the place to be in Freo and Chalkys cafe is one of the reasons why. Sitting under the looming shadow of the historic Round House gaol is this clean cut cafe and it doesn’t get more West End than that.…

Bluewaters Cafe

Blue Waters

It’s a lot of pressure picking a breakfast place for a catch up with friends when you do this job. You want to impress them with your choice; show them that you know what’s good in Perth for the morning meal. I picked Bluewaters Cafe for a morning out with hubby and friend Belinda after looking at their website and seeing pictures of tables with white table cloths and a plethora of awards and accolades. They were a finalist in 2013…

Bib and Tucker

23 October, 2014
Bib&Tucker

Again and again I am left disappointed with restaurants on the beach. I end up leaving thinking “well all I really paid for was the view because the food was rubbish”. What was I going to get at one of Freo’s most talked about restaurants named after a couple of scallywag bushrangers? I had promised my mate Ben that we would go to Bib and Tucker together and we had the perfect excuse for a group brekky  – to meet his…

The Attic

The Attic 1

There are parts of Fremantle that are frozen in time and I’m not talking about from when the convicts were hanging out on High Street. Walking down the cappuccino strip is the same now as it was 20 years ago. It makes me roll my eyes and think “really? How are these places full?”. Some are charging in the high $20’s for food that your local shopping centre cafe could do a better job of. People should be heading to…

The Roasting Warehouse

The Roasting Warehouse

A guest review from the "Bitchez Who Brunch"! For us inner city slickers, a trip to Fremantle seems so far that it might require a packed lunch. Call us lazy, but with so many of our favourite brunch places within walking distance, we often feel like it might not be worth the mini road trip. However, when we were asked to write a guest blog for the Breakfast Confidential, we decided to fuel up the car, load our iPod…
