Culley's

 

Fremantle’s most famous pie cafe CULLEY’S is now open from 7am.

The High Street mall tearooms have been operating for over 80 years and are very popular with Freo locals and visitors, and the kids love the party pies.

FREO-SUCH A BEAUTIFUL CITY

 

Freo 1

 

Some Fremantle impressions I took yesterday. A tiny hole in the wall cafe, two bookshops combined in a reflection, the Fishing Boat Harbour early morning, and lots of bikes at another cafe.

Freo is full of hidden treasures and surprises. Explore it!

POPULAR FREMANTLE CAFES

Posted in cafe, city of fremantle, food, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on March 25, 2018

 

Sunday breakfast

 

I really like the courtyard of the Fremantle Moore&Moore cafe in Henry Street with its heritage feel.

It was packed full this Sunday morning and I even spotted TV reporter Elly Cormack sitting at the door.

Great to see that so many Freo cafes are very popular and people coming from far and wide.

The M&M came fourth for the best coffee in Perth last week. Well done!

VERY HOT COFFEE AT PORT CITY ROASTERS

Posted in cafe, city of fremantle, coffee, Uncategorized by freoview on March 20, 2018

 

roasted

 

Customers of the Port City Roasters in South Fremantle can expect some potent strong coffee in the next few weeks.

The company roasted just a little bit too much this morning and set the chimney on fire. No major damage was done and it was trading as usual on the corner of South Terrace and Little Lefroy Road.

VC 2

 

Cruiseliner Celebrity Solstice arrived in Fremantle Port this morning and is an impressive sight at Victoria Quay.

The 317 metre long ship can accommodate 2,852 passengers and cost $ 750 million to build.

The Express Lane cafe at the B Shed Rottnest Island ferry terminal did a roaring trade with lost of people heading off to the island while a strong easterly was blowing in hot air.

FREE ALFRESCO MIGHT JUST HELP

Posted in cafe, city of fremantle, hospitality, local government, Uncategorized by freoview on February 23, 2018

 

I do realise that money is tight at the City of Fremantle because of a small ratepayers base and a big new civic centre project, but it would be good if Fremantle took the example of the Town of Vincent and introduced a free online applications for alfresco areas.

Vincent will introduce a free instant approval of alfresco, based on self-assessment and self approval by the applicants.

There will be some traders who will find it very hard to survive in Fremantle during the Kings Square Project construction, so anything that will support them will be a good thing.

The free alfresco could be limited to traders directly affected by the Kings Square Project and encourage them to put a few tables outside without adding cost to their business.

FREO EXPECTING THE BIRTH OF COS BABY

Posted in cafe, city of fremantle, coffee, food, Uncategorized by freoview on February 17, 2018

 

 

Some people will say that the Fremantle CBD needs new cafes like a hole in the head, but here the announcement of yet another caffeine provider to open on Monday.

COS BABY will open on the corner of Pakenham and Bannister streets and also has a parklet, which makes it the fourth parklet in Pakenham Street.

It looks nice and uncluttered inside, so check it out when you walk by.

FREMANTLE GREAT RAIN OR SHINE

Posted in cafe, children, city of fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on January 17, 2018

 

cosy mm courtyard

 

There is still a bit of rain around, but it is pretty warm, so no excuse to not enjoy one of Fremantle’s lovely cafes.

This is the cosy courtyard of the Moore&Moore cafe in Henry Street, that also has a children’s playground, and it is next to the Paper Bird children’s book shop, so the perfect destination during school holiday.

 

…and rain drops in my little backyard.

Posted in cafe, city of fremantle, coffee, Uncategorized by freoview on January 10, 2018

 

 

After a well-deserved festive season break CHALKYS, one of my favourite cafes in Fremantle, re-opened today.

For those who have not discovered the little gem yet it is at No 1 High Street in the far West End of Fremantle and just 50 metres from the historic Roundhouse jail.

CHRISTMAS COFFEE IN FREMANTLE

Posted in cafe, city of fremantle, coffee, Uncategorized by freoview on December 25, 2017

 

There are only very few cafes open in Fremantle today, so it was a nice surprise to discover that both Galogero and the Roasting Warehouse in South Fremantle are open.

The excellent double espresso, served with a glass of mineral water, at Galogero only cost me $ 3.50 so no surcharge.

South Beach was already packed full at 10 am with parking spots at a premium.

In Wray Avenue the new Mod cafe was the only one open and in the Cappuccino Strip Ali Baba. Just around the corner in Essext Street the Istanbul is open as well.

Enjoy your Christmas day and consume coffee in moderation. ; >)
