Laid back style, easy going feels and a mischievous personality make Duck Duck Bruce a different kind of cafe….
What’s in a name? A few word put together to allow others to identify something, or perhaps it can be more, words evoking feelings or memories of better times… Duck Duck Bruce – I read somewhere that this is a combination of the owners favourite children’s game and their favourite movie character, the shark from JAWS. What a wonderful play on words to give you a glimpse in someone elses world!
Duck Duck Bruce is fantastic cafe with a menu that provides so many tantalising treats for the tongue and for the mind. My breakfast favourite is Beans Beans Good For the Heart, I wont finish the song but safe to say it made me chuckle!! The dish itself was a tantalising blend of housemade beans, bacon jam, poached eggs, toast and a Gruyère crisp.
Simply delicious!! It was soo good that I simply had to come back for lunch with my wife! The lunch menu, whilst staying true to their mischievous naming ways has a decidedly sub-continental theme, I ordered the Papadum Preach whilst my wife ordered the Luke I Am Your Vada. My dish had the most amazing beetroot cured salmon through it, paired with puffed spelt, lemon labne, papadums and a bunch of other delectables. It was perfectly portioned and left me satisfied but willing to have more! My wife’s dish was sweetcorn and coriander potato cakes, with scattered pomegranate and a spectacular saffron yogurt. The potato cakes were packed with flavour but the saffron yogurt elevated this dish to the next level!!!
We will definitely be back, I am dying to try the We’re Going to Need a Bigger Boat – a supersized big breakfast and I also want to sink my teeth into The Morning After the Night Before – a decadent pretzel layered with everything you want after a big night.
Duck Duck Bruce can be found just off Fremantle’s High St at 18 Collie St, it is set up in a beautifully restored old homestead.
Its opening hours are 6:30AM TO 3:00PM, 7 days a week. Breakfast ends at 11:30 and there is a 30min intermission whilst the kitchen preps for lunch.
Duck Duck Bruce is not licensed yet, but they are full BYO!!
We love the changing landscape of Fremantle’s cafe scene and a thrilled that Duck Duck Bruce is now apart of it!!
Treat yourself to a fun filled breakfast or a lazy lunch, Duck Duck Bruce will not disappoint!!
