With the holiday season upon us, there are a plethora of cafes and restaurants around Australia, but how do you get one that takes on the same feel and the same style?
And, for those that are looking to start a cafe or restaurant in the heart of the city, there’s a new cafe and restaurant opening up in Sydney’s CBD.
Located at the former Lighthouse Cafe on The Bridge, Jenavie’s Cafe is a new concept that combines a coffee shop with a cafe.
The cafe will open in the next few months and is already selling coffee and sandwiches.
The new cafe will feature a different menu, with sandwiches on the menu.
“This cafe will be a different way of getting coffee, and it’s a cafe where you can actually sit down and eat, rather than just having your drink on the table,” Jenaview’s cafe co-owner Matt Smith told ABC Radio Sydney.
“I think we’ve got a bit of a new coffee scene in Sydney and I think it’s important to have a cafe with that in Sydney.”
Smith says the cafe will cater for both coffee and breakfast, with a selection of sandwiches and soups on the breakfast menu.
But, for breakfast, the cafe is offering a selection that is more like a coffee-to-sandwich ratio.
“We’re not going to be selling the coffee, we’re going to do the sandwiches,” he said.
“It’s not a coffee/sandwich type cafe, it’s really a cafe to get breakfast.”
While the cafe isn’t set to open until February, it will be opening with a bang.
Smith says there will be over 20 cafes and cafes across Sydney to visit.
“There’s a lot of coffee, it does need to be delivered,” he explained.
“A lot of cafes are already there, but they’re not as well known as Jenavieds Cafe, and we think that’s a good thing.”
Jenavios Cafe will open on February 1.
It will have a range of coffee and tea options, and there will also be a selection on the sandwiches menu.
It’s also being named after a Sydney restaurant, Jenova, which is based in Sydney.
The original cafe is currently in a former warehouse at the corner of The Bridge and Punt Road, which will soon be demolished.
