Moore & Moore Cafe - Fremantle

Very few people would disagree that Fremantle is bursting at the seams with gorgeous scenery and inviting eateries. It’s one of those places that instantly picks up my mood. My recent trip to Moore and Moore was spurned by the need for a long drive and cup of coffee after school drop off. Never mind the mountain of work I have sitting at home, sometimes a break is the best motivator. Having had a very unpleasant morning, I returned home in a very positive and reenergised mind.

We usually go to Fremantle for fish and chips but a short stroll away from the water and you’ll find yourself at the Moore’s building which includes an art gallery as well as the gorgeous Moore and Moore Café. There’s ample ticketed parking off Henry St and Marine Terrace. Some kind soul had folded their paid parking ticket with two hours to spare in the booth as a gift. First positive sign of the day. The people down this way just seem nicer, I swear it.

The café has indoor and outdoor seating and as I had my three year old with me, we chose to sit outside where there is a small kids area hidden to the left. I missed it on the first walk around but the amazing staff were kind enough to point it out as I ordered. The absolute best part about our visit was the staff. I cannot fault them. Everyone seemed genuinely happy, attentive and friendly. I will go back time and time again to any place where the staff make me feel at home.

The three year old went with a brownie and babychino, which was delivered to him as he sat in the kids area and which he scoffed before I could get photos. I take that a good sign. For myself, the usual dessert for breakfast craving kicked in and I ordered a mocha as well as an Almond Croissant dish off the menu.  This is no ordinary croissant – it was incredibly filling but not overly sweet or heavy. The multitude of different flavours blended well into each other and my only disagreement is with the lashing of cream which seemed quite dull is comparison to everything else on the plate.

My coffee was a mocha, with ample chocolate dusting on top. I loved that there were actual notes of chocolate in it. It went down well with the croissant. Some other eateries in Perth seem to think dumping a teaspoon of chocolate powder into or on top of a coffee equals a mocha. I strongly disagree and it sure didn’t have that horrid flavour. A smooth cup of coffee was exactly what I wanted.  

The shaded courtyard in which we sat was incredibly beautiful with a rustic bohemian vibe.  A coffee mug water wheel was to my right and walls of tomato paste tins, greenery and even a little street art all complimented each other. On a weekday, it was busy but not overly crowded.

Moore and Moore is distinctly Fremantle. I’ll go back for the ambiance alone, though I probably won’t be able to pass up their lovely menu.
