I’ve always heard great things about Moore and Moore Café in Fremantle, found in a heritage listed building on Henry Street. It’s in a beaut location, just around the corner from Bread in Common and a stone’s throw from the Fishing Boat Harbour, Esplanade Park, Round House and Cappuccino strip. Making it really accessible to pop by for a coffee whatever you’re doing in Freo.
Moore and Moore is very Freo – a little alternative, very artsy and boho chic. You’ll find the eclectic café in the Moores building, a beautifully rustic warehouse which is also home to a contemporary art gallery.
You can choose to sit out in the shady courtyard.
We chose to sit inside, in the cosy front dining space, which has mismatched furniture. It was a lot quieter in here, filled with uni students, from the neighbouring Notre Dame.
To our delight, they serve Karvan Coffee, which is excellent.
Everyone on our table (my parents and Little Chef) were pleased as punch with their food choices. The menu has a lot of options and locally scoured, organic produce. My Mum enjoyed New Zealand king salmon, with crispy skin, a poached egg, delicious dill creme fraiche and rocket with blistered cherry tomatoes on Turkish toast ($21).
My Dad loved the grilled gouda and parmesan potato cake, with runny poached egg, toasted broccoli and an organic sun dried tomato and cashew pesto ($19). He added bacon to the dish too.
I enjoyed an absolutely delicious grazing bowl. It was chock-full of so much flavour, there’s roast pumpkin, salsa, sesame avo and pickled veg, as well as some spicy pulled Harvey Beef! All that and gluten free too – I was stoked!
Little Chef chose a toasted croissant from the kids menu. Even this was beautifully presented with house made sauce.
For the kidlets, there’s not one but two areas in the back courtyard where they can play. There’s an Astroturfed kid’s corner for toddlers that’s full of toys and a blackboard.
As well as that, there’s a shady play area with sandpit and boat, as well as some brilliant climbing ladders that older kids will enjoy.
If you’re in Freo, Moore and Moore is an excellent spot to stop by for a coffee and bite to eat – even with kids in tow. The service is so friendly and I was really impressed by their brunch offering, it’s so good to see a café that is clearly very passionate about local produce and the food it sends out of the kitchen!
