We all love Freo, but what about its neighbour to the east? Here are just a few of our favourite spots in the 6158.
A neighbourhood wine bar, kitchen and bottle shop? Any time we hear that combination, you can count us in – and Young George is no different. A globally inspired menu designed to share with mates is pretty tantalising, but add in a cellar of this calibre, plus a low waste approach, and we’re totally sold.
Ethos Deli + Dining Room
As if Young George wasn’t enough, the team has ventured down the road to open up Ethos – a zero-waste, Eastern European-leaning neighbourhood deli and dining room. House made charcuterie and small goods and killer sarnies are just the tip of the iceberg, with the bar’s offerings just as exciting a prospect.
Duke of George
Freo and blues go together like bread and butter – so the Duke of George just Makes Sense. Nestled in the lower levels of the historic Brush Factory (itself converted into a creative hub), you won’t be able to resist having a boogie – or their New Orleans inspired fare. Doesn’t a whiskey sour sound good right about now?
We consider it a personal failure that we didn’t make it to Eugene’s Pizzeria sooner. This neighbourhood pizza spot is slinging pies six nights a week that are unpretentious yet high- quality. We’re talking 72-hour fermented dough and local ingredients – and what’s better about a pizza than that?!
While you’re strolling through East Freo, taking in all the heritage buildings and general charm of the neighbourhood, you’ll obviously need to fuel up… Make sure you stroll past Plympton’s for your morning cuppa. This hole-in-the-wall coffee spot is serving up quality brews and even better vibes.
The Left Bank
