We ordered the Blue Burger, Tandoori Burger and Smashed Avocado meals and generally they were very nice. I found the chicken in the Tandoori burger quiet tough and this distracted what was otherwise a rather nice... More

Ootong (where did they get the name?) and Lincoln is a great little retro cafe in south Fremantle. Best coffee, great food and friendly staff. Definitely worth the trip from cappuccino strip. The free cat bus stops close by.

Every time I visit I enjoy my lunch immensely. The salads are delicious and the choices of food changes regularly. Everything is so tasty, especially the great variety of cakes, the brownies are the best in Perth..

We came in early afternoon, not many people in there and we ordered 1 coffee 1 shake, 2 pieces of cake and sweet potatoes fries, it took a while till our order arrive on our table and they forgot our shake. The sweet potatoes are delicious but the service? I'm not in hurry to go back there.

Stopped by a 'doesn't look busy outside' breakfast location and stepped inside to be greeted by a large and occupied quirky decorated breaky cafe. With furnishings found off the road side pickups the food surprisingly came out quick. Tasty and cooked well eggs with a lovely porridge my wife gave two thumbs up to.

Very busy. Very helpful..great coffee and food. Obviously the place to be on a Saturday morning. Looks like a good selection of take outs too and homemade ice cream. Great place..but not a quiet coffee at least on a Saturday

Thank williamsps18
