Yep you read that right – beloved Fremantle cafe, Duck Duck Bruce is set to close their doors for good this July.
What? When? Why? So many questions, such little time!
Duck Duck Bruce will sadly be forced out of their Collie Street outpost after a seven-year residency, and owners, Charlie, Woody, and Sean took to Instagram to break the news.
“This isn’t an announcement we had anticipated to have to make, but Duck Duck Bruce is coming to an end, with our last service set to be Sunday July 16th,” the trio wrote.
“Our landlord is not renewing our lease. After researching other sites that didn’t feel like home, we’ve decided to celebrate going out on top and give ourselves six months to let the dust settle.
“We’ll take the opportunity to have a Sunday lie in, pour our love and energy into Lions And Tigers, and make significantly less late-night carrot cake before we make any big calls on the Bruce’s future.
“Duck Duck Bruce has been an adventure born of, and sustained by love on all sides. We couldn’t be prouder of what we have made or more grateful for everyone who has worked alongside us or come in for brekkie over the past seven years. Absolute legends each and every one of you.
“Let the four-week feeding frenzy commence, we can’t wait to feed you up on all the good stuff and share a laugh one last time.”
All good things come to an end, so they say, even your favourite local.
The converted cottage cafe is local produce-forward, and serves up sublime coffee and a good balance between sweet and savoury fare, along with freshly squeezed juices.
Perch up in Duck Duck Bruce’s homely garden dining space, surrounded by local dogs aplenty, while you can – sad reacts only.
