More exciting news for Fremantle! Benny’s bar and cafe on the Cappuccino Strip is extending out into Paddy Troy Lane with an alfresco area that will be served by a bar in a seacontainer. Art by Row is working on a large mural.

Owner Ivan Dzeba told me they hope to open the new area before Christmas, so stay tuned.

Paddy Troy Lane could well become a great new hospitality offering for Fremantle with the development of the Manning building, the opportunity for the Newport Hotel to also open up the back, and the Federal Hotel already having extended its alfresco there.

There is also the Kebab cafe and Grumpy Sailor cafe, so Fremantle Council might like to consider developing the lane into a real asset with better lighting, planter boxes, seats and trees, and only allowing service vehicles in the lane before 11am and no private cars.

FACELIFTS AT THE FISHING BOAT HARBOUR

The refurbishment of the Kailis Fish Cafe in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour have been completed and the popular fish&chips destination is open to the public again, with a raw fish bar added.

Down the road the sterile HELM bar at Little Creatures has been gutted and the old Harbourside bar has been brought back with cosy launches and armchairs. I much prefer it that way!

THE REAL FREO MARKETS RIVALRY

Posted in city of fremantle, food, markets, tourism, Uncategorized by freoview on September 30, 2019

 

 

There is a bit of healthy rivalry going on between the two markets in Henderson Street with the Fremantle Markets pointing out they are the REAL market.

All that because the True Blue Markets opened a few weeks ago just opposite, so more choice for visitors to Freo.

The new markets specialises in Aboriginal art and craft while our great Freo markets offers a wide range of goods and foods, so check them both out today!

The colours of the Mexican Kitchen restaurant on the Fremantle Cappuccino Strip stand out

Freo’s only Mexican restaurant has been there for a very long time, so it must be doing something right, and it is open every day of the week.

CHANGES IN FREO’S FISHING BOAT HARBOUR

Posted in city of fremantle, fishing boat harbour, food, hospitality, tourism, Uncategorized by freoview on September 17, 2019

 

 

Quite a few changes are happening in the popular Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour.  Kailis is changing their concept with a new 80s style fish cafe that will have a raw fish section and will feature the cheaper fish such as mullet, herring, etc.

The Helm bar that opened upstairs at Little Creatures in November last year was something I  and many others never liked and it clearly failed because now they are going back to the past and the old Harbour Bar will be recreated.

The demise of Sweetlips was very disappointing but there is work going on and signs stating that a new concept will open in that space soon, so stay tuned.

FREO’S FANTASTIC FACELIFT

 

Facelift 1

 

It is really exciting for me that there is so much going on in Fremantle and that good old Freo is getting a well-deserved facelift all over town.

At Kailis in the Fishing Boat Harbour work has started on the new 80s cafe that will feature more affordable fish such as herring and mullet and will have a raw fish section. I love sashimi so I’d better win Lotto so that I can become a regular at the raw fish bar.

In gorgeous High Street another heritage facade is being restored while at ground level the Breaks cafe is being renovated.

And at Kings Square the raised tree beds are being removed so that the new pavement can be put down.

Fremantle’s rejuvenation has been a long time coming but I hope and believe that brilliant times are the future of our beautiful city.

TOO WET FOR ALFRESCO FISH?

Posted in city of fremantle, fishing boat harbour, food, tourism, Uncategorized by freoview on August 30, 2019

 

 

I don’t think I have ever seen the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour so quiet at lunch time, as it was today, although the weather is quite pleasant after the heavy showers early this morning.

Empty tables at Cicerello’s and Kailis, so not much fun for the seagulls either.
