Whilst Sirona Capital appears to be struggling to sign up tenants for their FOMO retail and hospitality hub at Kings Square, that is still totally empty, Silverleaf Investments is doing a whole lot better at the redeveloped Manning Building.

Another new tenant has been announced, with SHORT ORDER opening a burgers, shakes, fries, beer and wine bar on the corner of the High Street Mall and William Street, opposite the Townhall.

It was so nice to see so many people at the Freo Farmers Market this morning. It is a real community market with great ambience.

All those dogs, kids, parents, prams and so many smiling, relaxed and happy people. It is very good for the soul to be part of the great Fremantle community. I love it!

The Mexican Kitchen restaurant on the Fremantle Cappuccino Strip has given itself a facelift at the back of the building and it’s looking great and colourful.

It would be lovely to see that whole lane changed into a work of art, so what about it Roma, etc?

TREASURE TROVE FREMANTLE

Posted in cafe, city of fremantle, food, hospitality, Uncategorized by freoview on July 22, 2020

 

Pasta Addiction

Ghetto Blaster

 

Freo is a treasure trove of unique shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and pubs. Well worth exploring, even for those of us who have lived here a long time.

Two unique places in Fremantle’s historic West End. Pasta Addiction in Mouat Street keeps receiving great reviews from happy customers about their home-made pasta and sauces. During the winter months they often have soup as well. Go and try!

In Pakenham Street the small hole in the wall Ghetto Blaster cafe stands out with its black wall. Great coffee!

I am delighted to hear reports back from food traders around Kings Square that the 1,750 staff of the Communities Department are making a positive difference.

Several operators told me that their lunchtime trade  has picked up considerably since the state department moved to Fremantle.

When one thinks about it, it is quite a milestone in the war against the Covid-19 pandemic that 150 small businesses re-opened in Fremantle today. The FREMANTLE MARKETS is open for business again!

I could feel the happiness among the stallholders that they are finally back in business, and already many people were visiting mid morning.

The Fremantle Markets started operating in 1987 so it is an iconic Freo institution. Go and support all those small businesses. They need and deserve our support!

Fremantle Markets

 

The very popular Fremantle Markets will re-open tomorrow-Friday July 10 at 9am and will initially be open Friday to Sunday from 9am to 6pm, with the food hall opening one hour earlier for those who want to buy fruit&vegetables.

The 150 small businesses in the market were severely impacted by the closure of the markets, which was due to the Covid-19 pandemic, so go and say hello on the weekend and support them.

Ajay of the Lucky Elephant clothing stall is delighted that things are returning back to normal.

But even in the markets it is essential to be aware of the social distancing rules, so look after yourselves and your fellow markets visitors and operators!

FANTASTIC FISHING BOAT HARBOUR PIAZZA

What a fantastic new public piazza has been created in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour, between Cicerello’s and Joe’s Fish Shack!

The Bon Scott statue is now in an elevated position on a stunning recycled jarrah deck with lots of seats around it.

There is also an amphi theatre with a lot of seating around the grass area, so a real improvement to what was there before.

Eating fish&chips has suddenly become a classy five star experience. ;>))
