GET YA FIX
“I think you have to be different, these days – you can’t just be a normal cafe,” says Get
Ya Fix co-owner Kev. Trust us: he’s definitely ticked that box. The cafe-slash-bike shop
(slash council headache, due to its hybrid vibe) opened in September with $1 pre-paid
coffee cards, uber-zen neutral sofas, minimalist bare bulbs, and a store stocked with
streetwear and on-trend fixed-gear bikes. But it’s not just for riders. “We’re trying to
make the place accessible to everyone,” Kev says.
1/471 William Street, Highgate.
Sure, there’s a crowd of regulars that descends on Third Wheel – but it’s not the long
mac-sipping, Lycra-clad cyclist packs owners Georgia and Tom anticipated when they
opened their doors. “We get a lot of local customers, and we also get a lot of people
walking up from the dog beach,” says Georgia. The cafe’s also popular with browsers at
next-door South Beach Cycles, and fits right in with South Freo’s tres-chill beachy vibe.
408 South Terrace, South Fremantle.
With its communal wooden table, casual jars of native flowers, and striking black-
and-white mural, Workshop Espresso is surprisingly pretty for a cafe attached to an
industrial-style bike shop. Owners Felicity and John have found that customers seem
to agree. “We thought we’d be this cafe full of Lycra-clad men, but it’s completely
the opposite,” says Felicity. “We get heaps of locals, heaps of women coming in for
afternoon tea. It’s totally different to what we’d anticipated, which is really nice.”
206 Cambridge Street, Wembley.
TREND ALERT: CRUMPETS
We’re not talking the shop-bought variety: these delightful, spongy breakfast staples
have gone gourmet. Leading the charge is Mr Drummond’s Foods at the Subi Farmers
Market, where ex-MasterChef contestant Wade Drummond whips up his now-famous
chewy treats with a range of toppings, including caramel popcorn (pictured). They’ve
also been spotted around town at Architects & Heroes (Subiaco), Aliment (West
Leederville), Gusto (South Perth) and The Other Side Cafe (Cottesloe).
We are soup-er excited that Suppa Club is providing some chilled options for the long, hot
summer. Cold soup, you ask? It’s actually delish. The word soup comes from the Latin word
suppa, meaning bread dipped in broth, so the name and seasonal recipes are a no-brainer.
“My dream is to revolutionise the fast-food industry by bringing one of the oldest recipes
known to man back to the forefront, and showing the world that sustainable healthy eating
doesn’t have to be hard, time consuming or at all costly,” says owner David Kane. “All produce
is sourced from local farms south of Fremantle, and organic produce is used where possible.”
Strawberry and rhubarb, asparagus, gazpacho, blueberry, and peach are some options they’ll
be serving for summer. Suppa Club is currently touring regular markets around town, but keep
an eye out for a shop in early 2016. Visit the Facebook page for locations and menus.
