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 apartment 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.”
