My six-day five-night Perth trip in September 2015 sponsored by Tourism Western Australia and organized by Foodsion 食尚 truly allows me to discover more of the city. My series about Perth will be published on a weekly basis, focusing mainly on the plethora of culinary offerings in Perth’s food spots while also touching briefly on the travel attractions and accommodation.
Moore & Moore Cafe situated in the heritage listed Moores Building in west end of Fremantle is an interesting dining place with a gallery and arts space.
The cafe with a simple table and chairs set up is a pretty great outdoor spot to dine in on a chilly day, especially with heaters providing comfortable warmth. The atmosphere is very relaxing and unhurried.
The quaint size cooking cum coffee making area churns out plenty choices of coffee, iced tea and a nice spread of food.
Several interesting beverages on the menu worth checking out are the Spiced Pumpkin Latte (homemade pumpkin caramel syrup yum), Rooibus Latte (red latte, caffeine free), Honeycomb Affoga, and Dirty Filthy Chai Latte (with coffee and chocolate).
For those looking for more kick in the coffee, grab a cup of the Moore Kick in your Mac which comes with triple shot long macc.
Available all day, Moore’s breaky menu offers a handful of hearty choices, with simple ingredients and toast paired together nicely. Toast options include 7 grain, Turkish or gluten free.
We ordered a selection of choices from the breaky menu. One nice creation was the combination of burnt butter, spinach, sage pumpkin mash and poached eggs piled on warm Turkish toast with a side of avo.
For avo lovers, you will be interested to know that the menu also has avo served with pesto, sliced tomato, rocket and sweet balsamic on 7 grain toast.
For just $19.50, the plate with 7 grain toast topped with honey roasted beetroot, harissa yogurt, smoked salmon, and poached eggs, easily satisfy anyone looking for a salmon treat.
The dates and banana organic oat porridge with generous amount of strawberries, apples and nuts has a tasty combination – slightly sweet with a mix of fragrant fruit flavors.
Besides the breaky offerings, Moore’s lunch menu looks pretty interesting, with the choice of braised Puy lentil, with asparagus, brocolini and mushrooms. It sounds delicious and I wish I have the time to try it.
For those preferring to dine outdoors, do grab one of the alfresco tables at the entrance of the cafe.
Moore & Moore Cafe is open daily for breakfast, from 7am till 4pm in the evening. The cafe is just a brief walk from our place of accommodation Be. Fremantle and restaurants – Kailis Fish Market Cafe and Bathers Beach House.
