It Just Has To Be Delicious

Freeman’s is a cafe at Leighton Beach in North Fremantle and is named after it’s location at Freeman Loop. There’s plenty of parking, and we didn’t have any trouble finding a table. The waitresses were really helpful in settling us in for brunch and organized coffee quickly.

My coffee was good, but I drank it quickly because it was lukewarm, and it was quite a mellow blend. Coffee, like wine, is very much a personal choice, but I think that a bolder blend would probably be more of a crowd pleaser.

The menu was full of many tempting options like vegan granola, raspberry pancakes, and eggs benny, and I almost chose the dumplings in szechuan sauce, but eventually opted for the banana pancakes with maple syrup and bacon.

The flavours were nice but overall the dish was very sweet. The bacon was nicely flavoured and a salty contrast to the sweetness, but it could have been crispier. The bananas were nicely caramelised, and I think that if the caramel sauce had been provided in a jug, I could have poured it as needed, but it was all too much and I couldn’t finish the dish.

One of my friends chose smashed avocado on sourdough with halloumi and rocket.

This was beautifully presented and she thoroughly enjoyed it, but said that the chef had been a bit heavy handed with the balsamic vinegar.

Another friend chose a bacon sandwich with hash brown and chips. He loved the sandwich and the chips, but the chips were really salty.

Another member of our group chose the full breakfast with chorizo, tomatoes, poached eggs, spinach, bacon, hash browns and bread. He enjoyed his meal – a good all round breakfast.

Freeman’s is in a great location and the seating looks out onto the ocean. The food is nice, and the menu sounds lovely, but some of the dishes are not quite right, and they could be so much better if a little more care was taken with tasting and seasoning. The cafe has strong competition from Bib and Tucker nearby, and if Freeman’s are going to survive they need to step up their game. The ingredients are good, just a little more care with flavours and the balance of their dishes, and they will do well.
