Offering generous servings, packed with care and brimming with flavour, Peggy’s is a necessary pit-stop for anyone in Fremantle.
On a corner where the shops meet the docks and the beach sits Peggy’s, which has burst onto the sandwich scene with a succinct line-up of interpretations of classic sandwiches, all made on house-baked bread. Early risers swing by for cheese toasties on a sourdough tin loaf, spiced with kimchi salt, or an egg-sausage-cheese combo that’s everything the McDonald’s version should be. But mid-morning to mid-afternoon is when the menu shines.
Each bite of the Schnitty – from the tender crunch of the chicken schnitzel to the tangy dill mayonnaise to the crisp lettuce – is all killer.
Each bite of the Schnitty – from the tender crunch of the chicken schnitzel to the tangy dill mayonnaise to the crisp lettuce – is all killer. As is the Antipasti, which packs mortadella, ham and sopressa into a roll with provolone and picked vegetables, a new-wave conti if ever there was one.
What makes Peggy’s more than your regular sandwich shop, though, is the level of detail. Each element is scrutinised and formed into the best version of itself. What’s more, there’s true confidence in the simplicity; this is where chef Harry Peasnell’s time working under Andrew McConnell really shows. Add coffee from Community Coffee, the prospect of chicken-salted chips, and a breezy setting that’s as comfortable as it is cool, and it’s no wonder Peggy’s has fast become a Fremantle staple.
