Cafe with a dif­fer­ence

Cockburn Gazette - - BUSINESS -

WITH a cafe on al­most ev­ery Fre­man­tle cor­ner, it can seem like each coffee is just the same as the last.

But the Cap­puc­cino Strip is not the only place you can grab a good cuppa.

Tucked away in North Fre­man­tle, the new Cafe Isth­mus boasts some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent from your av­er­age Fre­man­tle city cen­tre cafe; an amaz­ing view over the ocean on one side and the Swan River on the other.

As well as Fre­man­tle’s sta­ple range of coffee, pa­trons can also en­joy an all-day menu boast­ing espresso French toast, Huevos Rancheros, duck salad and barramundi while look­ing over the pic­turesque Leighton Beach.

Cafe Isth­mus’s Car­rie Kelly said the cafe came out of the blue.

“We were look­ing at an apart- ment in the new Taskers de­vel­op­ment in North Fre­man­tle and by chance found the op­por­tu­nity we had been look­ing for be­cause the Taskers de­vel­op­ment in­cluded plans for a cafe, but had no op­er­a­tor,” she said.

“We were struck by the beauty of the lo­ca­tion, which has an in­cred­i­ble vista over the har­bour, river and ocean – a per­fect lo­ca­tion for a cafe.

“We have only been open for a few short weeks and are con­tin­u­ing to see busi­ness grow as peo­ple dis­cover us.

“We are not only get­ting fan­tas­tic pa­tron­age from lo­cal res­i­dents and ten­ants in Taskers apart­ments, but are also see­ing peo­ple drop in from around neigh­bour­ing ar­eas.”
