We’ve buffed your cheek marks and handprints from our windows and doors every Monday, but now your wails of despair down Reservoir Street are over… We’re finally opening Saturdays!
Once upon a time we were open on Saturdays. It was in 2004 and while very successful, culminated in us throwing a ‘Closing Saturdays’ party 8 months later due to getting too busy with wholesale and needing to do our espresso machine installs and deliveries on weekends.
Since then, there has been a handful of sneaky Saturdays and a strange Sideshow Saturday incarnation, but otherwise it’s been a sea of vacant Saturdays, much to the horror of uninformed locals and unsuspecting interstate visitors, while we’ve all merrily been off drinking coffee and eating breakfast at other cafes, playing golf, watching music vids, sleeping off hangovers, attending kids sport with hangovers, maintaining our 5 day a week work life balance ideals. (Luckily these days we have grown an epic team to handle deliveries, installs, trainings Monday to Friday.)
But now the time has come to open Saturdays once again!
We’re opening to meet and serve customers who don’t live or work near Surry Hills and have never had the chance to come during the week. We’re looking forward to showcasing our coffee, food and coffee for home to all the dwellers beyond 2010!
With our Botany roastworks espresso bar soon ready to open (news coming shortly!), we’re able to expand the team and retain a work life balance for those who don’t want to give up their golf and hangovers.
We’ll be doing what we do weekdays, slow brews at Sideshow included, and we look forward to seeing weekday regulars and to meeting their friends and family who haven’t been able to make it over the years as they work a distance away. Ditto with our friends, come on down! And anyone out there who hasn’t experienced our thing yet, we look forward to meeting you.
Saturdays 7.30am-3pm (kitchen closes 2.30pm) from March 22 onwards.
Odds on we’ll stay open this time round, but don’t delay anyhow!
