The cafe is not in the heart of Fremantle but already attracts many midweek lunch diners, who knows what will happen in the coming months/years.
My first impression on walking through the door was WOW….it was so noisy inside! There were a few free tables but I couldn’t wrap my head around the volume.We decided to sit outside so we could chat and enjoy the winter sunshine.
We took a look over the menu and had the choice between ordering from the breakfast or lunch menu..this of course made our choices a little harder.
I was torn between the Potato Cake ($19) from the breakfast menu and the Smoked Paprika Burger ($18) from the lunch menu but in the end, I went with the Potato Cake from the breakfast menu. I couldn’t turn down the option of hollandaise eggs and salmon…how could I?
Ms. C changed her mind on ordering and went with a daily special, Chicken Curry, from the display fridge inside.
We also picked up an English Breakfast Tea ($4) and a Latte($3.80) to drink. I was quite surprised that the tea cost more than the coffee considering the elements of each drink, but each to their own.
My coffee arrived and I loved it but it was quite small. Ms. C was happy with her English Breakfast also.
First to arrive was Ms. C’s Chicken Curry. She had a craving for a rice dish and was more than happy with her dish as she made her way through it. It may look like a small dish but it definitely was not small!
The chicken was tender, juicy and coated in a mildly spicy sauce. The dish was topped with thinly sliced zucchini and fresh parsley.
A few moments later, my Potato Cake arrived. I was visually attracted to the dish and the array of colours immediately. The potato cake was golden brown and packed with herbs and flavour. It sat on a generous bed of fresh green spinach and had beautifully fresh salmon draped over it. This was further topped with two perfectly poached eggs with a small coating of a creamy hollandaise sauce.
Honestly, I enjoyed every bite of this dish! Out of greed for the flavour, I wanted to order this dish again, however, I was full.
What a breakfast. Two very satisfied customers left Ootong & Lincoln and I hope to revisit.
If you are travelling from the city to Perth, I would recommend Good Things in Mosman Park.
