Al fresco dining is a hallmark of Fremantle and the Cappuccino Strip is legendary for its many outdoor cafes and restaurants. The section of South Terrace from the corner of Bannister Street to Parry Street is renowned as the ‘Cappuccino Strip’ for the many cafés and resident barista’s that prepare an almost unending variety of coffee’s.
It’s the perfect place to stop and enjoy a glass of icey craft beer, Western Australian wine and indulge in a little people-watching, as the life and the action of the city flow by.
The strip is also home to excellent restaurants, pubs and breweries including the famous Sail and Anchor and the award winning The Monk Brewery & Kitchen. Visit our Fremantle story website for a list of places to eat & drink.
At night and especially on the weekends, the Cappuccino Strip is the centre of Fremantle’s entertainment precinct with hotels and clubs offering cabaret, open mic nights and live music until the early hours. If you have the energy, by the time you leave the clubs, the cafés will be open for a morning coffee.
Nearby are the lively and historic Fremantle Markets featuring more than 150 stalls offering fresh produce, tasty local treats, jewellery, souvenirs, fashion and home wares. Many of Fremantle’s famous street performers have started their careers outside the markets at the Henderson Street pitch, including renowned musician John Butler and The Bad Piper, earning their living from their ‘hat’.
