Decided to try this little Cafe for lunch today. I must say we quite happy with our meals. Good price (not too pricey), good meals, big portion. We had spicy beef soup and spring rolls prawn on a bed of rice vermicelli. They both were rich in flavours and fresh. If you planning to come at lunch time you may... More

Have been going to 55 since 2008 and not once have I been disappointed. Their BunBoXao is probably the best in town and is always consistent and fresh. When its Winter, I always go for the Laksa and CanhChua soups. They are awesome! Dont think they have moved their prices in about 5 years so excellent value for money. See... More

Café 55 is at 55 High Street in a slightly decrepit part of Fremantle, opposite the Fremantle Buffalo Club. The café is open from 7:30 am to 3 pm. The food is a mix of Vietnamese, Southeast Asian and traditional Australian. The coffee is good and moderately priced by Western Australian standards. The laksa looks good and my caffe latte...

Situated on High Street, this Vietnamese café provides consistently good food. Not flash, but adequate. Good range of food from curries to soups, and my absolute favourite Pho Ga. Quick service and takeaway.

I used to have lunch here every day! I love it and since I came back to my country i've been dreaming about your food pretty much every day. I hope I can come back some day. I suggest pretty much everything! Cafe 55 rocks!

If you are in Fremantle at lunchtime and looking for a cheap, satisfying and delicious Southeast Asian-style meal, look no further than this busy cafe. It ticks all those boxes and more. Don't be put off by its fairly modest appearance. The Laksa and Pho Bo are superb (both $11.50), service is quick and the meals a good size. You... More

I go here regularly for a quick lunch. I always choose one of the freshly cooked hot dishes. The place is very popular with Notre Dame students, as it offers great value for money.
