8 Beaut Brunch Spots Around Fremantle
Everyone knows breakfast is the best meal of the day, and that means all day breakfasts are basically a gift from the gods – letting you have poached eggs on toast at 1pm after a hungover sleep in, or pancakes with a mimosa at 11am with your mates. Fremantle has endless cafes, and loads have tasty brekky options, but this list is for anyone looking for that perfect brunch spot. Just wait, soon you’ll get to while away the weekend, indulging in delicious food, strong coffee, and perhaps a day-time cocktail or two!
Chalkys Espresso Bar
Sometimes Fremantle can get a bit hectic on the weekends, and it’s nice to find a spot away from all the hustle and bustle. Chalkys Espresso Bar has a unique location in the west end of the city, sitting under the shadow of The Roundhouse, which gives diners a peaceful and historic view. Their all day breakfast menu includes all the classics you’ll be looking for, and a few unique offerings like pancakes with slow-cooked chai apple and date salted caramel, or chilli and feta scrambled eggs with black truffle aioli. Like any good Freo cafe, they also have solid vegan options like spiced eggplant and chickpea scramble, and baby pea and avo smash with confit mushrooms. Chalkys’ coffee is on point, so you can pair your feast with that necessary morning jolt!
4/1 High St, Fremantle
This heralded South Fremantle cafe is the ultimate brunch spot, with an array of slightly fancy brekky options, which you can pair with cocktails like mimosas or Bloody Maries. It’s the ideal place to go for a long, luxury brunch with your mates, where you can almost feel like you’re on the set of Sex & The City (but with more chill Freo vibes). Little Lefroy’s is run by a passionate team who take inspiration from every corner of the globe and love upcycling – the bar was built from an old bridge, the tables are recycled pallets, and the lights feature recycled wine bottles. Your brunch food choices include decadent dishes like the ‘Rustica Bene’ – potato hash, prosciutto, poached eggs and hollandaise – and the delish ‘pancakes of the day’ (some of the tasty toppings are peanut butter mousse with banana and salted caramel, or strawberries with mascarpone and chocolate drizzle!).

Moore & Moore
Moore & Moore has that classic Freo cafe feeling, with quirky decor and a unique layout (inside a heritage building, with various nooks and crannies, and a sunny courtyard), and a focus on sustainably-grown local produce. Head away from the cappuccino strip and into the quieter area of Freo and you can try some of the tasty (and ethical) brunch offerings at this cafe. One of the signature dishes is the ‘Pot Of Moore’, which has pasture-raised eggs baked in local tomato and capsicum sauce, with fresh basil pesto. Another intriguing option is the sage and burnt butter pumpkin mash with poached eggs, spinach and dukkah. This cafe is the perfect brunch destination if you’re a vegetarian, are on a health kick, or are trying to live a more sustainable lifestyle – but still want to enjoy a hearty breakfast dish.

It’s a little cafe just around the corner from the cappuccino strip, with cosy and inviting decor, and a cute upstairs area. The all day breakfast options here are very affordable, and include hearty dishes like a classic full breakfast (there’s a vego option too), eggs benedict, or a pancake stack with maple syrup and vanilla ice cream.

Duck Duck Bruce
You might have to wait to get a table at beloved Freo cafe Duck Duck Bruce, but trust us, it’ll be worth it. Started by a trio of mates, the warm spirit of friendship is imbued throughout Duck Duck Bruce. This is a place that doesn’t take itself too seriously… even if the food is seriously good. Taking inspiration Indian cuisine (they’re also the crew behind Lions and Tigers), their breakfasts are packed with flavour. This is the way to start the day.
18 Collie Street, Fremantle
The Cool Room
Slightly further afield towards East Freo lies the The Cool Room. At the crossroads of two suburban streets, next to vintage store Old Values, it’s hard not to feel pretty charmed by the mish-mash of retro Formica tables, plants and brightly coloured umbrellas. It’s as unpretentious as they come, yet out of their tiny kitchen they manage to serve up unpretentious breakfasts that can rival Perth’s best.

Hush Specialty Coffee
Hush has been a stalwart for Freo caffeine fiends for years, and it’s no wonder why. An unending flow of Five Senses coffee keep the morning coffee crowd happy, while those who are after a more leisurely experience can enjoy the crowd-pleasing yet considered menu. Jaffa French toast, WA mushrooms with truffle oil and sourdough, 48 hour beef brisket benny… we’re feeling pretty peckish, how about you?
