Owners Chris Joannou and Chris Johnston have dedicated themselves to creating a shared space that provides a superbly designed environment offering good hearty food, a great cafe culture that is all anchored by a stunning raw concrete bar at its heart. The industrial chic space began its life as a Laundromat before becoming the hip bar scene that it is today, with beautiful cues from its heritage such as the steam press beer taps and gas tumbler lighting.
Sweet smoke scents the air from the kitchens wood fired oven, you can sit and eat with friends in a communal scene that is in keeping with the working roots of this town. The Edwards Cafe is proudly pouring coffee from our local roasting house Suspension Espresso and our breakfast, lunch and dinner has a consious measure toward sourcing seasonal produce from local suppliers and maintaining a strong knowledge of the origin of our produce from local suppliers and maintaining a strong knowledge of the origin of our produce.
