Where to eat and drink in Fremantle


Set inside the heritage-listed Moores Building, which used to be a merchant's warehouse, this creative cafe is a delight. There's a contemporary art gallery for emerging artists near the entrance, and a bright courtyard out the back. 

The food is wholesome - we chose the Vietnamese Pulled Beef Burger (pictured), which arrived in a sweet brioche bun with spicy sriracha aioli and Asian veggies on the side. 

They do breakfast and lunch set menus too. Take a look at their website for more info.


With a vast menu and prime location on Fremantle's South Terrace, Benny's is fairly priced with people-watching opportunities outside and a large inside space. It has more of a 'pub' vibe in the evening and it can get quite loud, but we were really impressed with the food so we would recommend it for a hearty lunch. 

Find the menu and more information here.


We doubt there are many people in Freo who haven't been to Little Creatures. Take a brewery tour, indulge in some sharing plates and try some of their beer straight from the steel vats.

All concrete floors and rough furnishings, stepping into this place was like revisiting one of our East London favourites. The atmosphere isn't so hip that you start to wonder whether you should get a tattoo or grow your hair after all. 

We drank two different wines from Tasmania that were recommended to us, and both were delicious. Aside from the great service, we received a bowl of crunchy pretzels. Who's interested?


A sophisticated little place tucked away in one of Freo's side streets. The menu quotes William Butler Yeats: There are no strangers here; only friends you haven't met yet. There's a vast wine list and a seductive snack menu (which can be viewed here) so add this one to your bar crawl.
