Ootong and Lincoln

South Freo: a place where people cycle barefoot, artists are a dime a dozen and sand-covered dogs live the good life. John Butler calls it home, so it must be crunchy. Think Freo – but 15 years ago.

Nowhere is this old-school Freo charm more evident than at Ootong & Lincoln. This breezy café is perpetually packed with locals enjoying a post-beach chill-out. Some come for the food, which is all made in-house using fresh local ingredients. Others come for the live music Thursday and Sunday arvos. Me? I’m there for the chai pancakes.

The décor is nostalgically whimsical. Tricycles hang from the ceiling, bike helmets make for lampshades and gran’s laminex tables dot the floor. The air holds an unmistakeable yearning to hang out just a little longer – which is probably why everyone does.

So lose your shoes and head south. And order me some pancakes, will you?

      Hi Fatcow (ooooh, would you prefer I called you something else?!),

      Thanks for stopping by! I’ve only visited exhibitions at Moore and Moore, but I’ve never eaten there. It’s on my must-try list!
