The shopfront on Charles Street looks narrow, but you’ll be surprised to discover that the cafe expands into numerous dining sections – a huge main room, a secluded back room, a front room that can double as a meeting room and even a sunny courtyard.
“The demographics of Seddon means that there are lots of young families, so we work hard to make the cafe family-friendly (and pet-friendly),” explains Kevin. “Parents groups come and visit us often because we have a large dining area with lots of room for prams, a spacious grassy courtyard and even toys and books for kids to enjoy.”
Local residents working from home also like to take advantage of the airy meeting area, with a communal table, high benches looking out onto the street and free wifi. There’s a readily available supply of coffee, biscuits, pastries and even gelato.
On the menu proper you can expect cafe standards with an occasional Asian twist. Currently their most popular dish is a Japanese prawn pasta, a perfect light meal for warmer months. The kitchen garden even supplies the parsley, lemon and spring onions as garnish.
