Ootong & Lincoln
A winner with South Fremantle residents from the outset, Ootong and Lincoln has become a part of Terrace life. From Anya Brock’s landmark mural on the side wall, to the promise of a $3 double shot from 6.30am, it has cemented its place.
Owners Nick and Leanne Ford took the former antique store and retained much of its charm with a mix-and match-approach to décor. Hence the ageing trikes and vintage phones that remind you of the days of rotary dial. The duo also co-owns Lenny the Ox.
Chef Karl Gibson is at the helm of the eclectic menu, which is built on an ethos of house made, from cakes to kimchi. Gibson is mindful of his Fremantle locale and ensures the veggie and vegan crowd are catered to with more than just tokenism.
He’s also got a keen eye on gluten-free, dairy-free and the myriad of dietary concerns that can tip or trip a place with diners. Fresh superfood salads, sandwiches and cakes offer a quick visual browse in the cabinet. From the menu you’ll find steak sangers, okonomiyaki pancakes and Gibson’s East Meets West burger; a spiced and seasoned chicken patty served with house kimchi in a bao.
