I always forget that The Monk has an indoor section as well as a big outdoor area out front. So on cold nights it looks like the place is a bit empty then you walk out the back and there’s loads of people.

We stopped by Little Stove the other morning for some breakfast. I felt like I was in someones kitchen. This is a good thing as we all know kitchens are the best places to hang out when you visit a friends house.
Everyone has sunk their teeth into a burger from Missy Moos/Gourmet on Wray/Flipside/Jus Burger but how about a hot dog for a change? At the lower end of South Terrace you’ll find Run Amuk: blazing a trail for hot dogs in a world of burgers.
We test drove…
The Rascal: bratwurst, coleslaw, cheddar, wholegrain mustard & smokey bbq sauce. $10
The Punk: bratwurst, bacon, caramelised onions, cheddar, wholegrain mustard, tomato sauce & smokey bbq sauce $12
Only three months old and The Cool Room is already our new favorite place for breakfast. Tucked in between The Hairy Hound dog groomers and Old Values vintage wares The Cool Room turns this row of shops on Holland Street into a little hub for the surrounding residents.
What’s really nice about it is that it’s quiet. There’s not a lot of traffic in the area so despite the fact that there’s a car park right on its door step it makes for a really relaxing place to hang out.
The breakfast menu is simple but interesting, expect goats curd (mmm curd), avocado, smoked salmon, sourdough bread. The coffee is good and the staff are genuinely friendly.

The Black Truffle is a welcome addition to North Fremantle. Previously Vanya’s, formally Latitude 9, was the only spot to grab some lunch and a coffee. Variety is the spice of life and multiple lunch options are always good.
Ever since the loss of Kelp I’m rediscovering Xwray. It kind of looks like a beach bar… but missing the water and sunsets. Still I like the leafiness and it’s a nice spot on a sunny day to grab a bite to eat. Then darkness falls the lights come on and the atmosphere changes and it’s a great place to have a few drinks.
You used to be able to order drinks at the bar but now it’s a sit down-and-order kind of thing, probably due to WAs licensing laws. FYI smokers: the smoking area is pretty nice and close enough to the main area so you can still hear the live music that’s on most nights.
Mumma’s is cool. It’s somewhere to go and meet people when cafés are closed and before restaurants are open. There once was a void and now it is partially full (cause Freo could do with a few more places like this). Went here for some after-work drinks on Monday and it’s a great day-time place. I was also there last night (Friday) so thumbs up for boozing on the weekend too.
Moore & Moore on Henry Street are getting ready for the summer and have expanded their dining area out to the front of the building. Very clever guys. We’re hoping they’ll start opening for dinner as well.
Franks of Wray Avenue, purveyor of pretty much any kind of meat, you name it they’ll probably have it if not they’ll order it in for you.

Jus Burger has been open for over a month now and you should stick your head in the door ’cause it’s rocking the best mural in the 6000s. The Greetings from Fremantle makes the place.
Jus Burger Fremantle is located at the old fish market corner at Fremantle Markets, South Terrace. Open 7 days: YEAY somewhere to eat on a Monday. Check out their new menu.
Update 5th July 2011: Walked by there last night to check out who did the mural and it was these guys.
