Don’t you just love that name for a wine bar.
But firstly we did the rounds of the Secondhand antique dealers in the immediate area of Mrs Brown. Candy wallpaper is along this strip in North Fremantle also. I love wallpaper and have lots to show in a follow up post. We have so far papered three rooms and have two to go.
One antique dealer I overheard was not very happy with a client asking him what time he closed today, (Sunday) in a very huffy voice he said 5.3000000000 don’t think he wanted to be there. The buildings in the area are very interesting and one day I will investigate what they started life out as. After the Rotary Ramble it has piqued my interest in the matters of buildings and how they began

Mrs Brown is opposite Harvest Restaurant in North Fremantle. We haven’t been to Harvest for ever as it just got to hard to get into. I saw a write up about Mrs Brown’s wine bar in the paper, thought we should give it a go for a Sunday lunch
They have a small menu which is placed in-between the covers of Golden Library books (memories)
I don’t think I have any of these left any more I gave them all away to charity. I used to love selecting these with the girls when they were little. Very clever idea, they split the books to make a hard cover menu, the menu pages are inserted inside fixed with nail pins. The idea of the wine bar is vintage/retro, just lots of old furniture that, they I assume collected from roadside collections to give tables and chairs another go at life

The barman was very friendly, now I wish I had done my homework or read the article properly as I don’t think you can actually order lunch here. But you can and do order from Flipside burgers that is next door to Mrs Brown’s, they deliver to your table.
Burgers were good, fresh and healthy, sorry not as good as Grill’d
Nice way to spend a Sunday.
On another note, I now no longer feel smug about my few flowers on our standard Kay Paris of which I have 10, as next door have established Kay Paris plants, and more flowers than me, boo hoo. There is always next year right?
