Ootong & Lincoln

13 April, 2014
Ootong & Lincoln

Ootong and Lincoln is a huge favourite amongst Perth cafe goers and if you think that getting there early for 8am means you’ll get a table easily – well think again. Sarah and I were surprised to find only one table left at this early hour but then we remembered it was Fremantle and not Mt Lawley. The people around there are up early to enjoy the beach, go for a bike ride or walk their beloved pooches. I love…

My list of places to visit and review is so huge that I can’t keep up anymore and it screams at me Fremantle Fremantle Fremantle!!!   It has been a long time since I have visited our port city and I was surprised to see how it has changed. My Gran worked for the Freo council in the tourist information office and we’d go and see her on some Thursdays  after school and have fish and chips at a pub in…

Little Stove

Little Stove

For years you guys have been telling me to check out Little Stove. I did make it there for lunch a while back with the promise to myself to return and it is only now that I have finally made it back for breakfast. I am sorry it has taken me so long! This cafe feels exactly like someone’s gran was looking over their shoulder as they designed it; they  were doing shabby chic before Mt Lawley even knew what…

THIS RESTAURANT HAS NOW CLOSED. The Wine Store is an independent bottle shop sitting in the old world wharfie streets of East Fremantle and the part we’re interested in is the Wine Bar. A wine bar for breakfast? Yep… in the last few weeks they have started to serve breakfast, which can be dangerous territory when there are so many other places in the area that people line up to get into. I feel like I am sharing  a secret…

Harvest

Going out for breakfast used to be a foreign concept to me until years ago I went to Harvest for breakfast and this is where my love affair with the most important meal of the day began. I sat there under the grapevines enjoying amazing coffee and perfectly made bloody mary’s and I was in awe that breakfast wasn’t just about bad coffee and soggy scrambled eggs. It’s been a long time coming, but I finally returned to Harvest last…

Cafe Lumos

When Cie from Pathetic to Pin Up contacted me on Twitter to see if I’d like to meet her for breakfast at Cafe Lumos, I was a bit dubious. A cafe in an old suburb like White Gum Valley competing with popular Fremantle? To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much. Oh how my opinion has changed! This is another example of a local cafe that can hold it’s own amongst the big players. As soon as we walked in, there was a…

As I walked inside I felt transported back to my great grand parent's house. It felt like it could be anyone's "Gran's" house. There was art on the walls in ornate frames, couches with floral velveteen cushioning and home made cakes filling the front counter. The friendly staff were all wearing vintage floral aprons that just finished the look of the cafe nicely.…

46 Henry StBreakfast served 7am – 12pm Weekdays & 8am – 2.30pm Weekends On this beautiful Saturday morning I decided to meet my friends SMC and Fudge in Freo for breakky. After some suggestions from readers I decided we should try Moore & Moore, which is down one of the many streets in Fremantle’s West End. I really like the West End area, you can get lost around there for ages looking in all the little shops down all the…

Maraschino

8 January, 2009

Maraschino Tea & Espresso Bar – Shop 8/21 Collie st Fremantle Breakfast served from 8am – 11.30am with all day breakfast on weekends. Licensed for BYO The first thing that struck me about Maraschino was the decor. It has a section of beautiful maroon suede seating down one side, the other side is box shelving filled with so many types of tea it will make your head spin, as well as other tea paraphernalia. There is a little corner that…
