We went to The Attic for tacos last weekend and we think you should check it out as well. Banister Street is just off the main strip and it’s worth taking those few extra steps towards the West End. Most of you will already have had lunch and breakfast there and now you can eat tacos. The venue is also licensed so you can have a beer or a glass of wine with your meal.

Love Freo’s new favourite lunch spot is slightly hidden, but once you’ve been there you’ll return for sure. Leake Street Cafeteria is located in a narrow courtyard, which – with its metal staircase – reminds of a bit of New York. You enter the courtyard through the ‘Kakulas Sisters’ shop, just walk to the end of the shop and you’ll see where to go.
The best burgers in Perth are on our doorstep.
Yes really and they’re only available Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings at The Mantle. The menu is small but you don’t need variety as these burgers are pretty much perfect. Brioche buns, Kraft cheese, crunchy pickle with hand-made burgers served medium-rare. You can even get a generous spoonful of mac ‘n’ cheese in there. Seating is really limited so there’s lots of people standing around eating. Be prepared to queue and watch the staff grill up a storm while you wait.
Where: The Mantle, 1 James St, Fremantle WA 6160
When: Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 6pm
It’s that time of year, the Summer is almost here so it’s time for the Sunset Markets, HURRAY. Want to see what’s kind of stuff is going on? Check out last year.
Mayor Brad and some City of Fremantle Councillors will be turning on the cliff lights at 7pm just as the sun goes down.
Last year there was a curry craze in Freo, this year we’ve seen a load of new pizza places open up, all of them pretty good. The latest is Crust, which is just out of Freo on South Street. We don’t often write about chain food places (mostly because there aren’t many) but Crust pizzas are something a bit different. We dropped by there just after it opened and tried out a Moroccan lamb pizza (delicious) and a black forest gateau pizza, which is even better than it sounds.
It’s Friday, the weekend is here, perfect timing as a new pop-up restaurant is serving up delicious American style bar food in North Freo.
This Little Piggy opened up shop last weekend in the Short Black Sheep, which is a café by day. We got there about 7:30pm last saturday night and we were greeted with big happy hellos and glass of wine and a beer. We scored the last three portions of wings, served with blue cheese (of course) and chipotle sauce. We also put away some delicious soft tacos with pulled pork and halloumi.
From the people that bought you Ootong & Lincoln comes another great cafe with an unusual name. In the space that used to be occupied by Gourmet on Wray, the Ootong team have wheeled their great blend of coffee up South Terrace and marginally closer to where I work… which will be handy on the rainy days. Everything is made fresh from scratch either here or in the bigger kitchen up the road, which means great salads, sandwiches, cakes and all the rest that you’ve come to expect.
Last thing Fremantle needs is another pizza place. Wrong. Box Pizza is probably the best pizza I’ve had outside Italy. It’s really good. I wanted to order another one when I finished eating the first one, but that’s just greedy.
It’s relatively new and it’s set up shop where the Sardine Café (RIP) used to be. It’s back to basics and the hand-made vibe runs though the whole place with pallet furniture and re-purposed wine bottles as drinking glasses. You can eat in as they’ve set up some seating outside. Pictured is the parma ham and fig, delicious. Excuse my amateur food photography.
