Situated a stones throw away from Leighton beach, The Shipping Lane (TSL) in North fremantle is a ‘casual beachside dining where sandy feet and furry friends are more than welcome’. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner 7 days a week. They are one of the most dog friendly cafes I’ve come across. As you enter, you can spot a whole jar full of yummy dog treats for your little furry member of the family.
The restaurant incorporates the clever use of retired shipping containers as part of their deco. Breakfast and lunch are counter service whereas dinner is table service. Either way, you’ll still get to enjoy the excellent service that TSL has to offers. We decided to have lunch there on a beautiful sunny day. The husband did a reservation online through their website (don’t worry, they reserve half their restaurant for walk-ins as well) and when we got there, we were swiftly seated and the little ones highchair was also already there. Menus were placed on the table and we simply just ordered at the counter. They have plenty of seats outside too for you to enjoy the sunshine and the sweeping view of the ocean.
They offer a kids menu which is very impressive. Best part, KIDS EAT FREE MONDAYS (from 6pm). Each of their kids meal also comes with a glass of juice. For lunch that day, Caleb really wanted to have fish and chips. However, when i looked at the menu, I noticed that it was only offered during dinner. I approached the friendly staff and she (Thanks Sarah) kindly made an exception and requested for it to be made available for lunch as well. Great service and great food was what we got to enjoy that day.
It doesn’t just end there. Great food and service is also accompanied by the GREAT VIEW of the beach! This place has got the trifecta! As we got there early, we went down to the beach to have a play till it was lunch time. It’s literally just across the road from TSL. There is also a huge grassy area where the kids can run free. Great for working off the lunch.
We had an awesome time at the beach and TSL. Looking forward to trying out their dinner menu next.
