Fremantle, WA – Western Australia’s port city of Fremantle has been going through a transformation of late…. And boy was it needed. Leading the pack is a warehouse bakery called Bread in Common.
Bread in Common is known for its bakery goods – But this café / bar / restaurant comes into its own after dark, with an electric vibe of nattering foodies and bustling waiters complemented by some incredible food and drink.
The point of difference here is Bread in Common manages to achieve what I like to call the ‘GOLDEN TRIANGLE’ – they nail the three aspects of atmosphere, food and service; a rare combination.
For food, the set menu is an ever-flowing, prodigious array of sorts… It just keeps coming with dishes like pulled pork with mushrooms, lamb pie with house made brioche pastry and smoked asparagus with slow poached eggs.
All food is sourced locally from small sustainable producers and the menu is every evolving depending on the season (or the day). The drinks menu continues the theme of supporting local with some magnificent beers from the likes of Eagle Bay brewing company and Two Birds in Victoria (their Golden Ale is a cracker!) Bread in Common should be a staple for Perthites.
Give it a go if you’ve never been, or go back if you have.
