Freshwaters is located overlooking the stunning Freshwater Bay, Peppermint Grove, features dog friendly covered outdoor dining and is located just short walk from a couple of off the lead dog exercise areas.
Dining along the Swan River doesn't get much more stunning than this. Freshwaters provides sweeping views of the Swan River from indoors and the front undercover dining area. There are dog bowls in both the outdoor dining areas (there is another outdoor area at the back but it's not covered and views or the river are obstructed here).
We popped in for a takeaway coffee, juice and doughnut (they have an awesome choice of delicious doughnuts) to enjoy as we walked along the river foreshore, but we have been told by a few people that the food here is exceptional, so we will be back to dine in soon. There is a big variety on the menu with an all day menu (that includes a morning & afternoon tea section), kids menu, mains menu and desserts menu.
The menu also features several pages about the history of the Freshwater Bay area. Complete with images, this makes for an interesting conversation over your meal and you can imagine all the old buildings and people relaxing and enjoying the area back in the day, as you gaze out over the bay.
There are two off the lead dog exercise areas just a short walk from Freshwaters making this the perfect coffee and walk combination. The first is across the road at Manners Hill Park. This park features a large pavilion which is perfect to take some shelter if there is a bit of rain about.
The second is a short stroll down the river towards the Scotch College Boat Shed. Your dog is allowed to walk along the river to this area on the lead. The off the lead dog exercise area starts at the dinghy storage area, features lots of shade as well as a water fountain and dog water bowl too. Here your dog can explore the river's edge, wander onto the jetty or have a swim in the river.
If you are looking for somewhere to dine with your dog, with exceptional food, stunning river views and somewhere to walk with your dog before or after you dine, Freshwaters Peppermint Grove is totally your place.
