Food as an art for Art’s sake

�The caf� is part of revitalising use of the Memorial Hall here, including having Iona Presentation College students doing drama classes in the day, and the idea is a caf� will generate a flow of people to go to the exhibitions and art in the hall,� caf� operator Renato Fabretti said.

Caf� patrons sit undercover, looking over the Luna at Camelot open-air cinema that operates alongside the Lochee Street hall in summer.

�Art�s as a name is a word play on Arthur, as in King Arthur and Camelot,� Mr Fabretti said.

Chef Zac Wilkinson has been busy making his own bacon, cold meats and chutneys, often with the help of WA Youth Theatre members who will be working at the caf�.

�The piccalilli is a �pimped� up version of a Jamie Oliver recipe,� he said.

Patrons� seating includes stools made by Andrew Christie from Fremantle�s A Good Looking Man Furniture, while North Fremantle-sourced Crema coffee will be served.

The caf� is open 7.30am-2pm.
