Moore & Moore Cafe, Fremantle (and win an iPad mini)

For a true “Freo” cafe experience, you can’t go past Moore & Moore Cafe.  Tucked away in a side street, this warehouse conversation in the historic Moore building means that there is enough space for more than a cafe. A big area is reserved for exhibitions that the Fremantle Arts Centre operate.

From now until 5 July, the Professional Photographers Exhibition is on, and it is fantastic.

Whether you like to watch the world go by from a pavement table, get cosy on a couch cupping a coffee, sit a big wooden table with your nearest and dearest, or soak up some sun in the court yard out the back, there’s a space at Moore & Moore that you will just love.

My only criticism is the order at the counter service. I do prefer to be waited on.  On the flip side, if you are going with a group, everyone can pay for their own at the counter so that makes bill splitting unnecessary.

I love the courtyard for relaxed meals, and the front room for business coffee meetings.  Moore & Moore isn’t a loud clanky cafe like so many in Fremantle are. It’s important to hear what your loved ones and friends are saying over a meal or a coffee, but doubly important to hear what a new client is saying too. That’s why I choose to meet a new client at Moore & Moore the other day, because I knew I’d be able to hear her! And of course because their coffee is legendary.

Don’t you just loathe it when you in are in a restaurant and you can’t hear your dining companions talk, so a conversation becomes a necessary shouting match?

Moore & Moore Café is situated in the heritage listed Moores Building in Fremantle, Western Australia. It’s decorated with odd yet funky kitsch furniture and bizarre light fittings. The Café is also a gallery.

The breakfast menu is great and had interesting choices like 7-grain toast with avocado or home made baked beans with rocket and cherry tomatoes which is what I had. It was delicious!

Best of all, their coffee is gooood.

It’s a real “Freo” experience.

Fourtyseven Kirwin Street Cafe, Floreat, Perth – review

Fortyseven Kirwin St is a busy and buzzy cafe tucked away in the streets of suburban Floreat. It is comfortable and has an airy cafe feel.  The coffee was good – so important to get that right.  The staff were attentive, even if we had to pounce to ask if my second cappuccino was on its way.

The food was quite good.  My African baked eggs with chickpeas, goats cheese and basil sounded unusual, so I had to try it. Verdict: it was tasty although I would have preferred the egg yolks to be runny, but it was still tasty and I ate it all up.

My lovely friend opted for poached eggs on multigrain bread with tomatoes and spinach.  It looked great and she also happily ate it all up.

Wonderful way to start a Sunday morning – breakfast at a great suburban cafe that serves good coffee with lovely company.  The staff were happy for us to while away a couple of hours chatting despite the busy Sunday morning cafe trade.

There are no views to speak of – it is a little far from the beach, but if you are around the area, I can recommend Fortyseven Kirwin Strett.
