IN DEEP SH.. FOR FLUSHING THE TOILET

Posted in cafe, city of fremantle, coffee, food, Uncategorized by freoview on June 7, 2018

 

I know one should not chuckle about other people’s misfortune, but this is actually quite a funny story.

Imagine using the upper floor office toilet at No 1 High Street late on the Friday of the WA Day long weekend, and without anyone noticing the toilet keeps flushing when the staff leaves, which results in the bowl overflowing.

Still not a disaster, but the drainage in the restroom is also blocked and now all the water drips down to the floor below, where it gets into the power box and short circuits it.

Imagine the owners of Chalky’s cafe in Fremantle’s High Street coming back from down south late on Monday and just checking that everything is alright on the historic day, to find all the power in the building out, so they need to rescue all their food stock from fridges and freezer in total darkness.

They make mad dashes to Target for big plastic containers and to the service station for bags of ice, and even buy a deep freezer to store and preserve the food.

There was still no power on Tuesday, so a loss in trade as well, and now hoping that the insurance of the office above with the leaking toilet will cover it all.

Sometimes flushing the toilet can put you in deep shit. ; >)

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.

MORE PARKLETS FOR FREO’S WEST END

Freo 3

 

The FPOL Committee of the City of Fremantle will on Wednesday decide if it will allow two more parklets in Pakenham Street.

The one in front of the Natural Light cafe has been removed and the shop is now on Marine Terrace, but the operators of a new gin distillery, bar and restaurant want to put a new parklet there.

The owner of the Ghetto Blaster hole in the wall cafe also wants a parklet in front of his business, so if approved that would make it five parklets in Pakenham Street.

MANY REASONS TO CELEBRATE

MANY 2.0 birthday party

 

 

Fremantle retail incubator MANY 2.0 is celebrating its first anniversary in the new location in the former Spotlight building in Adelaide Street this Saturday with a party from 5-8pm.

MANY had to move out of the former MYER building at Kings Square last year to make way for the redevelopment there.

Go check out all the lovely shops and the cafe and support our local small businesses.

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.

POPULAR FREMANTLE CAFES

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.

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.

An early reminder that the lovely Fremantle GROWERS GREEN FARMERS MARKETS, have relocated back to their old spot at Lefroy Road at Fremantle College.

The market has been a great meeting place for locals and beyond and is the perfect place to buy fresh produce, bread, and lots of other yummy things, as well as delicious breakfast and coffee.

There is live music, the animal touch farm from Farmer Damian, face painting.

It’s lovely to sit on a rug under the trees and engage with your local community.

Open every Sunday from 8 am till midday.
