Vic Park Love
Gone are the days of schlepping all the way to
Mundaring for Little Caesars. Early February saw owner/
head chef Theo Kalogeracos open Theo + Co in East
Victoria Park, serving the exact same pizza as Little
Caesars – same dough, same toppings, same unreal
Sticky Fingers dessert pizza. Theo was immediately
taken with his new ‘hood. “People are so community-
orientated in Vic Park,” he says. “I’m shocked. I came
down here and was welcomed with open arms. We’ve
employed 18 staff from Vic Park, which is great because
it creates a real sense of community and family in the
shop.” 838 Albany Highway, East Victoria Park.
Freshly Baked Cafes
A round-up of this
season’s newest cafes.
Fremantle’s love affair with coffee continues with the
arrival of new coffee roaster-cum-restaurant Gesha.
We love the breezy warehouse dining room, polished
concrete floors, ample courtyard and spicy Gesha Hot
Dog. 59 Queen Victoria Street, Fremantle.
2. Jack & Jill
Kalamunda has become a bit of a cafe hotspot.
There are a dozen all up, with the newest addition
being Jack & Jill, owned by the same pair behind
neighbouring cafe, Haynes Street Larder. Both serve
hearty, organic, local fare worth climbing the hills for.
18 Haynes Street, Kalamunda.
3. May Street Larder
The new East Fremantle venue by Olympic swimmer-
turned-restaurateur Eamon Sullivan has us swooning.
We love the rustic decor touches, the relaxed-yet-
gourmet fare and the wickedly tasty, guilt-free
CocoWhip. 155 Canning Highway, East Fremantle.
There’s good reason new North Beach cafe Tropico is
one of Perth’s most Instagrammed cafes: quirky LA-
style decor, beautifully presented food, and a clientele
almost exclusively made up of gorgeous twenty-
something girls. 105 Flora Terrace, North Beach.
5. Willie Wagtail
Friendly service, excellent coffee and the cutest
name ever? That’s Willie Wagtail in a nutshell. We
love the inventive salads, naughty pastries and
hushed courtyard that feels a million miles from the
CBD. 131 William Street, Perth.
The Flour Factory is a carnivore’s paradise. The butchery
of epic proportions boasts black pudding, hotdogs,
duck terrines, veal tongue and – for fans of belly cuts
– pancetta, lambcetta and house-smoked maple belly
bacon. Charcuterie boards are the go at the restaurant,
though choosing from the imported jamon, prosciutto and
fuet is no easy task. That’s not to mention all the lovely
cheeses. It’s the kind of grazy food that goes perfectly
with a stiff drink. Our advice? Order a flight of fortified
wines – sherry, vermouth or aperitivo – and learn a thing or
two about the underappreciated tipple. Better yet, drink
said fortified at the venue’s aptly named rooftop bar, The
Sherry. The Flour Factory is the third venue that owner Andy
Freeman (of Varnish on King and Darlings Supper Club
fame) has opened in the last two years. Here’s hoping this
overachiever doesn’t take the breather he’s due for.
