A great bustling breakfast joint on the growingly popular south end of the strip. The food is well done café style that comes in at the regular ‘Freo’ cost ($15-21 for cooked breakfast. Good coffee and service. Interesting décor (recycled=on the cheap!). A great meeting point for leisurely Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Should have gone in before now, I've been missing out big time. Lunch with friends today was fab. We admired the interesting decor, fascinated over the novel way the juice was served in mini jugs, pondered over a concise menu and drooled over the puddings. Love the imaginative way my friends salad was served. My chicken burger was stuffed with healthy green stuff too (not usual lettuce!). All clean plates on our table. The biggest chunk of crumble (with decent cream) was shared amongst us and declared delicious. I would have liked to have had a coffee, but quite frankly didnt have any room. Embarrassing moment, when someone on our table said to the person serving our juice 'I like your jugs'! And yes I know, the green stuff in my burger was spinach! Looking forward to going back. A gem. I'm not sure how much the bill came to, the company paid

I had the Chocolate Banana Pancakes with Caramel Sauce and Pecans. Heaven. Literally, heaven. I'm a huge pancake fan, and these were the best I've ever had! As well as the awesome food, the fresh juices were also really tasty! You could mix the flavours together at no extra cost, so I had Orange, Apple and Lemon. Yumsk! Plus they come in these cute mini jugs with a straw. My friend had the sourdough toast with avocado, and that also tasted ah-mazing, it was just delish!

The interior is typical Freo; hipster-ish, trendy, and totally cool. The cafe has random pieces of retro and vintage furniture - almost every table and chair is different, the lights are hung up in jars, and there are awesome pieces of art on the walls. Like most places in Perth, it's quite pricey, and for pancakes and a juice it cost around $24.

A gorgeous hip, funky "huge" cafe/restaurant in Fremantle! The decor is very much Freo with style, its set up is very functional and easy to dine in.

The food is very healthy but you can order food that has delicious dressings and fabulous cake!

Its such a popular place now, so busy and thriving when you walk in. Thongs to suits! Any attire fits the setup.

Take away coffee bar is excellent.

Because they are so busy and popular now parking is a bit of an issue. Same with timing from ordering to serving. But totally worth the wait.

I just love the food and the old bikes up lining the ceiling, the glass jar lights, huge dining area and long bench space if you fancy that type of seating.

Fantastic little place - the crowds let you know it has a grand reputation. Food is always fresh and tasty. No table service but the atmosphere makes up for that. I have eaten or otherwise been here at least 20 times in the last year - I will go back.
