Lunch and brewery tour @ Little Creatures Brewing – Fremantle

I thought it would be good to take J to Little Creatures Brewing in the gorgeous town of Fremantle. The brewery is split into a great hall, brew house, Creatures Nextdoor, and the deck so there’s plenty of space to find a seat and enjoy a beer. We entered the great hall holding several vats […] Read more…

Just past the Braidwood Bakery and behind Eureka Pizzeria, you’ll find a small cottage where DOJO Bread is located. The bakery is tiny and could […] Read more…

Fortunately, our hotel was very close to the Nishiki markets – a hubbub of activity with several restaurants and food stalls, also known as ‘Kyoto’s pantry’. Walking through the tight alleys in the undercover area was […] Read more…

We enjoyed […] Read more…
