Photos I took this morning of two well-known Freo cafes. The shadows are at the Carriage cafe on the Esplanade and the arty entrance is of the Moore&Moore cafe in Henry Street.

Fremantle has a lot of hidden little gem cafes, so go out and explore!

PERFECT CAFE FOR HERITAGE WEEK

Posted in cafe, city of fremantle, food, heritage, hospitality, tourism, Uncategorized by freoview on May 18, 2018

 

 

Very Freo to have coffee in the former Municipal Tramways building in Fremantle’s historic West End.

Chalkys cafe also has some interesting murals depicting the trams, Roundhouse and maritime history. The food, coffee and service is great!

The perfect spot during Heritage Week for breakfast and lunch I reckon.

BIG GROWERS GREEN MARKETS TODAY!

Posted in city of fremantle, community, food, growers green markets, Uncategorized by freoview on May 6, 2018

 

 

It’s the first Sunday of the month, so the Fremantle Growers Green Farmers Markets will be extra big with the addition of art and craft stalls today.

The Growers Green is loved for its family and dog friendly community ambience where friends catch up for a chat over nice breakfast and good coffee while browsing for fresh produce, fruit and vegetables, breads, pastries, cakes, etc.

There is live music, face painting and more. It’s the perfect and relaxed way to start a Sunday morning.

It’s open from 8am till midday at the Fremantle College, Lefroy Road, Beaconsfield.

It feels like summer has returned to Fremantle so the Under the Bridge Foodtrucks are doing the same and will be at the East Street jetty today from around 5-9pm for the last time this season.

Great food and great community vibes, plus stunning sunsets at the port.

NEW FREMANTLE MUSIC MURAL

Federal Hotel art

 

Good to see the owners of the Fremantle Federal Hotel beautifying the laneway wall with a large mural by local artist Art by Destroy. It is still a work in progress but very Freo

Walk down Paddy Troy Lane to get the best look at it, and check out the hotel’s daily specials.

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.

BEN FRENCH COOKING UP A STORM IN HEAVEN

Posted in accidents, city of fremantle, community, food, Uncategorized by freoview on April 10, 2018

 

Ben 2

 

I am deeply saddened to hear that that beautiful man Ben French, co-owner of the Eat No Evil foodtruck has died.

Ben had a terrible scooter accident on Koh Samui in Thailand and was flown to Perth after a huge crowd funding effort, but sadly to no avail.

Ben was a really nice guy with always a smile on his face and foodies around town will mourn for him for a very long time.

My sympathies are with Ben’s family and friends. May he rest in peace and cook up a storm in heaven!

Congratulations to Fremantle’s Clancy’s Fish Pub which is celebrating its 30th birthday!

During my good old drinking days I spent many hours a week at Clancy’s drinking Guinness and wine and eating lots of fish&chips, whitebait and fried mice.

I danced to exhaustion on the great music of the Zydecats almost every Sunday night and attended many festivals Clancy’s organised in Princess May Park.

The Clancy’s crew are the best people and the family atmosphere in the pub makes sure there are very few occasions of the odd bad drunk.

Melbourne Cup at Clancy’s was a really day out where I caught up with friends at 11am to stagger home early evening.

Clancy’s is a truly Freo icon that looks after children as well as it looks after grown ups.

Happy birthday Fisher brothers and all the staff and thanks for all the good times!

GO FRENCH AT THE FREO FOODTRUCKS TONIGHT!

Posted in city of fremantle, food, health, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on April 2, 2018

 

 

It’s a beautiful warm final day of the long weekend, so after the street arts don’t forget to go to the Under the Bridge Fremantle Foodtrucks at the East Street jetty from 5pm today.

Great food, great sunset at the river and port and also the very important fundraiser for EAT NO EVIL co-owner Ben French who had a horrible life threatening accidents in Thailand and needs our financial help.
