Eat and Drink in Fremantle
When taking a stroll around Fremantle, it’s essential to have a coffee in hand, a bite to eat, or sit down for a casual lunch at one of the many new venues that have opened around Fremantle. Lily’s Dumpling House uses only the freshest and natural ingredients for your midday dine in dumpling lunch, or grab some take away and enjoy them down at the harbour. If you’re wanting to dine at night, let us recommend the new French bistro, Angel House, where the incredible food is paired with an amazing French wine list. The newly refurbished Warders Hotel is a small boutique hotel standing within the old limestone cottages that once were the Fremantle Warders homes. If it’s a coffee you’re after, head to First Rule Café for one of their delicious brews and tasty treats. Staying along the tasty treats theme, Let’s Fika showcases some incredible Scandinavian treats which are all homemade and packed full of flavour.
