Foodie Faves in Palmyra

The leafy suburb of Palmyra is less than 10 minutes to the centre of historic Fremantle, five minutes to the Swan River and 10 minutes to stunning North Fremantle beaches. Better yet, this suburb is in the middle of an up and coming food, cocktail and coffee culture, making East Fremantle one of the best places to meet family and friends.

For the fans of gastronomic delights, have a read of our favourites below and start ticking them off your list this weekend…

Sweetwater Rooftop Bar

Leisurely sit on the sunny rooftop and take in views of the beautiful Swan River whilst trying one of the many Asian inspired dishes and cocktails. Known for their amazing Yum Cha, why not try their eight-course yum cha brunch with a three-course cocktail tea service?

Young George Bar and Kitchen

Drive down iconic George Street and you’ll easily spot a neighbourhood favourite. This late-night bar and kitchen has delicious house-made charcuterie and cheese boards. Feast on their global inspired menu, perfect for sharing, partnered with local wine, beer and cocktails. This is a weekend must!


Sitting conveniently across from our Carrington57 apartments, is a coffee and acai lover’s dream (with a Lebanese twist). Known for its generous smoothie bowls topped with treats like peanut butter, granola, fruit or better yet…their homemade baklava. Their savoury options are just as amazing, our favourite is homemade falafel and fresh salad.

May Street Larder

Open for breakfast and lunch, you can expect an ever-changing menu, seasonal salads, raw treats, pastries and a buzzing atmosphere. The community vibe makes for a perfect meeting spot, nestled in thriving East Fremantle, they have something for everyone. Strawberry Fields French Toast, breakfast burrito or a super greens salad for brunch?

Tradewinds Hotel

This stunning heritage listed building was recently refurbished and takes in sweeping views of the Swan River. Offering a relaxed atmosphere in the courtyard and a more formal restaurant option, you can grab a bite back from the beach or take someone out for a special occasion. Open from breakfast through to dinner with seasonal events, accommodation and function spaces, this place really has it all.

Gratia Organic Café

Embracing the plant-based diet, this café is a vegan hot-spot. The live music in the courtyard on the weekend showcases local acoustic artists and adds a buzz to the East Fremantle foodie scene. There’s nothing better than knowing your fresh juice and organic superfood bowl have been made with love!

Bicton is a short hop from Palmyra, but we feel this amazing family owned and run restaurant couldn’t be left off the list. A sociable share style menu with Italian flair – all the pizza and pasta lovers need to check it out, especially when all their bread, pizza dough and pasta is made in house.

The Left Bank

One of the most iconic Riverside Pubs in Fremantle, The Left Bank sits right on the Swan River and has amazing sunset vibes. Enjoy their daily breakfast, lunch or dinner menu or simply pop in for drinks with friends. This is a place everyone loves!

Misto Food and Coffee

A short stroll around the corner from Carrington57, this neighbourhood favourite serves up fresh and delicious meals with an affordable price tag. With very little social media, this secret local fave is a hidden treasure. Make sure to pop in and grab a coffee and stay a while – you won’t regret it!

Want to live in Palmyra and make these your local foodie faves too? We don’t blame you! Carrington57 has a few apartments remaining, but be quick – they are selling fast.
