Last Saturday, in desperate need of a break from house-hunting in 38 degree heat, we stumbled across 9 Seeds, a cute café/juice bar/restaurant. It’s located on Marmion St in East Fremantle, just between Coode St and Wilkinson St. A tiny island in a suburban sea, 9 Seeds appears to enjoy a steady stream of business – ice cream-hungry kids in their bathers, friends chatting over coffee, or passers-by like us looking for a quick bite.
The bite was not only quick, but surprisingly delicious. My chicken, Gouda and avocado sandwich was to die for, especially when washed down with a yummy juice concoction of passion fruit, pear and pineapple. The coffee was just so-so, unfortunately. But all was forgiven upon realisation that the bookshelves lining the walls of 9 Seeds were filled with used books for sale. This might be my new favourite café!
