A new café for locals to call their own.

Our client recognized a need for a café with family appeal in the burgeoning suburb of Cheltenham. The result is an honest café with an inviting interior that is contemporary and complements the simple food offering and corner publican style nature of the owner.

The space is split by a central kitchen and servery bar, featuring white brick and timber and is subtly lit by a custom black pendant wrapping the work space. Opening up the shop front with bifold windows creates immediate interaction with people passing on the footpath and allows natural ventilation throughout the venue.

Messmate timber boards, laid in a chevron pattern,  envelope the space with warmth and create a perfect canvas for the simple, yet elegant neon signage. Leather upholstery softens the floating timber banquette seating.
