Food treasure tips for Fremantle

The West’s Hermione Stott with Rob Broadfield have put together this great summary of the perfect day grazing Fremantle’s best venues. I think they did pretty well. There is a fun video on the link too.

FOOD TREASURE TIPS FOR FREMANTLE

You’re in Freo. You’re hungry. You’re thirsty. It’s hot. There are people everywhere, spilling out of cafes, bars, juice joints … where do you go?

Like everywhere in Perth you can’t just rock up to any old place and expect top-notch nosh with a side of wow.

You’ve got to know where you are going, whether it’s for an oh-so-healthy acai bowl or well-constructed negroni.

For the most important meals and drinks of the day, and with some expert help from local hooch slinger and bar owner Darcy Travers from Strange Company, food critic Rob Broadfield and yours truly have sourced new, off-the-beaten-track finds.

MORNING CAFFEINE INJECTION

Third Wheel, 408 South Terrace, South Fremantle;open 7 days 6.30am-2pm, and 7.30am on Saturday and Sunday

Set up by a young local couple and delivering simple, affordable fare, delicious coffee and mouth-watering sweets.

Bottega, 87 Market Street;open 7 days 6.30am-6pm

Awesome and delicious for lunch (and breakfast). House-baked bread, tasty rolls, and delicious Italian fare. It’s also a classic Freo experience to sit on the cafe strip and people watch.

MID-MORNING COFFEE HIT

Blink Espresso, 19A High Street; open Monday-Friday 7am-2pm

Blink and you’ll miss it. If you’re in a hurry Serge won’t keep you waiting. If you have a moment he’ll chew your ear off.

Studio 37, 22 Pakenham Street; open Monday-Friday 7am-4pm and 8am-1pm on Saturday

A favourite local meeting spot with great coffee.

LUNCH

Modern Eatery, 6/124 High Street Arcade; closed Monday, open for lunch 11.30am-2pm except Tuesday and dinner 5.30-9pm

Some of Fremantle’s best sushi and a delicious showcase of Japanese cuisine. Little known fact, it also has beer on tap.

Coccolicco, 185 High Street;open Monday-Friday 7am-3pm

Huge, simple and delicious sambos from $7-$9. Good coffee to boot.

A local haunt for cheap Vietnamese.

Short Order Burgers, 1 James Street; open Thursday-Saturday 6-10pm and 5-9pm on Sunday

Best damn burgers in the Port City.

POST-LUNCH TIPPLE

The Local Hotel, 282 South Terrace; open Monday-Friday 11am-late, Saturday and Sunday 9am-late

The pub that does what it says on the label. It’s not unusual to bump into any number of Fremantle locals enjoying a boilermaker or glass of rosè.

Norfolk, 47 South Terrace; open 7 days 11am-midnight

New chef and a new smoker in the courtyard. Great drinks and great food, great vibes to meet friends for a bevvie and snack.

PRE-DINNER TIPPLE

Strange Company, 5 Nairn Street; open noon-midnight 7 days

New menu at the moment. Head chef Ricky is back from a recent trip to Spain and Italy and his dishes are thus inspired, using top-quality local seafood, heirloom tomatoes, local carrots and an all-Australian cheese list.

DINNER

Manuka Woodfire Kitchen, 134 High Street; open Tuesday-Sunday 5-9pm

Heavily spruiked already but worth every word. One oven, woodfired, that’s all.

Holy Smokes, Shop 8, 17-23 Collie Street, open Tuesday-Thursday 4pm-midnight, Friday and Saturday noon-midnight and Sunday noon-10pm

Serving up food that’s healthy for the soul, if not the heart.

Little Lefroys, 310 South Terrace, South Fremantle; open Monday-Wednesday 7am-3pm, Thursday-Saturday, 7am-9.30pm and Sunday 7am-1pm

This little local gem is a find. Does great brekkie, lunch and dinner. Lovely staff, rocking menu and great wine list. Ticks all the boxes.

La Sosta, 85 Market Street;open Monday-Thursday 5pm-11pm and Friday-Sunday 11am-11pm

Authentic Italian fare at fabulous prices.

ONE-FOR-THE-ROAD COCKTAIL

The Odd Fellow, 47 South Terrace;open Wednesday-Sunday 7pm-midnight

Live music, adult drinks, simple food.

Miss Chats, 59 High Street; open noon-midnight 7 days, 10pm Sunday

Classy, unpretentious joint with rocking tunes and great cocktails.
