Bread in Common; Duck FAT Potatoes in Fremantle

Every so often, Dad and I meet over a cup of coffee. I love taking him to new places and he's always keen to step out of the zone of familiarity and comfort which is great. Today it was Bread in Common, a cafe and bakery on Pakenham Street in Fremantle.

The Bakery stocks the Australian favourites such as pies, sausage rolls and jam donuts. Did you know that ...
