MORE MOORE&MOORE

Fremantle Council approved a ten-year extension of the lease to Moore&Moore cafe owner Simon Naber.

I have been a regular visitor to the quirky cafe in the Henry Street art centre since it opened, and am very happy to know it will continue to operate under the same management.

The Moore&Moore has a cosy courtyard and a children’s playground, and a one-hole mini golf for kids, and was the first Fremantle cafe to build a parklet.

There are issues with operating within the art centre and with a tiny kitchen, but they could be addressed with a bit more flexibility from the City’s Fremantle Arts Centre management.

It is not very practical for example that the centre manager’s office is at the start of the building, when that area would be ideally suited to extend the kitchen and coffee service to. The art centre manager could relocate to one of the two artist’s studios at the back, to accommodate the need for the cafe to have a larger kitchen/barista area.

If the Fremantle Arts Centre has a need for more artist in residence spaces one or two of the Pilot’s Cottages at Captain’s Lane next to the Roundhouse would be well suited for that purpose.

The Moore&Moore cafe is a well-established and much liked cafe and function centre in the West End and should be more actively supported by Fremantle City.
