Things move at a different pace in the Port City, but Freo is still fuelled by fast-paced coffee and delicious eats – check out just a few of the best cafes in Fremantle:

Best Wishes

Killer coffee? Holy Bagel Co bagels? Best Wishes keeps things simple, but boy does it pay off. Since opening their doors in 2017, this crew has built up a reputation as the best place in Freo to pick up your daily coffee – and in spite of their super-cool branding and merch, you’ll find no pretension here. Genuine smiles, and genuinely good coffee. What’s not to love?

We were breathlessly waiting for Peggy’s to open – and boy, we weren’t disappointed. The Market Street sandwich bar has been a fast favourite, drawing fans from north and south for their next-level sandwiches and coffee (filter only!) just as good. (We’ll continue to breathlessly wait for the return of the Cubano, though).

Hinata Café

Absolutely adorable. That’s the first thing that comes to mind stepping into Fremantle’s Hinata Café. The plant-filled, rustic space serves up cosy Japanese home-style plates – with the main star their monthly rotating brunch sets: a plate of nourishing goodness straight out of a Studio Ghibli film.

Good Things Fremantle

Good Things was already a firm favourite for the Mossie Park massive, so news they were venturing south was welcomed with gusto. Having taken over the former Attic site on Bannister Street, you can expect some of the café’s most popular menu items (like their signature chicken and hotcakes or chilli scramble), now in that iconic Brian Klopper building.

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?

68 High Street, Fremantle

Bread in Common

We’re all about a romantic dinner at Bread in Common, but you don’t need to wait for date night to head to Bread in Common. Drop by the bakery counter for a quick coffee pit stop from 11:30 each day and just try to resist the cabinet filled with fresh rolls, sandwiches and pastries. Don’t forget to pick up a Common loaf to take home with you!

43 Pakenham Street, Fremantle

The Cool Room

Slightly further afield towards East Freo lies 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 coffee and food that can rival Perth’s best.

Little French Nest

Get a petit taste of Paris at Little French Nest. The charming café opened at the start of the year, and has earned legions of fans already with its decadent crêpes, croque monsieurs, home baked pastries and other French treats that will have you saying “ooh la la!” in no time.

Kokomo’s by Livid

The excellent Livid Skate Cafe has practically become a part of the Scabs furniture, and the crew have now expanded their easy-breezy empire with another cafe in Freo’s new FOMO precinct, Kokomo’s. The new location continues the celebration of skate culture and great coffee, with the added inspiration of Japanese architecture and the friendly vibes of the Port City.

FOMO Freo, 46 William Street, Fremantle

Chalkys Espresso Bar

Practically nestled underneath the Round House, Chalkys is a favourite of Notre Dame students and Freo locals alike. Perch on a stool and soak up the sun outside, espresso in hand, or treat yourself to an indulgent breakfast – like pork hock and hollandaise, chilli scram or an old-school big brekkie!

Moore & Moore

Whiling away an afternoon in the picturesque courtyard of Moore & Moore is a true treat – especially when paired with their delish all-day brunch! After you’ve devoured your sage and burnt butter pumpkin mash, poached eggs and dukkah, or your crumpets with torched banana, coconut maple and bacon, head next door to the Moores Building Art Space and check out some local artworks!

46 Henry Street, Fremantle


We’ve been celebrating the rescue of a historic, 140-year-old Fremantle fig tree… But that’s not the only treasure on High Street! Underneath the fig tree’s mighty branches, pint-sized Coccolicco is serving up Japanese-leaning cafe fare – from nourishing sandwiches and wraps to comforting veggie-packed miso perfect for cooler months.
