A big congratulations to Liz, her team in the kitchen, and the rest of our staff on receiving 3 stars (best in class) in the Good Food Guide. That means we scored somewhere between 18-20 out of 20. We are real happy with that!
Our new Bathysphere mugs. Available to purchase for $12 with a free Drip coffee. We will also now serve all our drip coffees in the mug.
The other night we organised a dinner and show at Wide Open Road and it was a terrific success! An intimate show with Sodastream that was streamed live to the world. It was a bit of an experiment really to see how it would go but by all accounts it was worth it. More to come.
We've been serving the Bathysphere as a drip for a few days now and it's going down real nice! Nice new addition to our coffees on offer..
The Fair Foodstore opened it's doors less than three months ago and now we can boast another great cafe with our coffee in it's capable hands. Sarah Masney(Movida among other places) runs the ship and Dave Masters (Ora Cafe in Kew) is taking care of the foodside of things and doing a spectacular job of it. The space is not only smart but stylish, and it's feel is welcoming and warm. Already they are getting rave reviews and getting busier and busier by the day.
Small Victories have been open since may and we have loved watching them do great things from day one. Dane Johns who has been working with us on and off for a few years has joined forces with Ben Farrant(Gills Diner) and Aldric Hansen (Crimean among other places) and they are doing amazing things at this North Carlton site. The food is incredible and the coffee ain't half bad either! Using the Bathysphere on a custom La Marzocco and running rotating single origins they are doing us proud. And as of very recently they are doing nights, so we thought it a great place to go for a staff dinner this friday night.
Don't listen to me, check out what Broadsheet has to say..
Almost unbelievable to anyone who has done a major build we completed it on time! We're all really happy and relieved with how well it has come up and are looking forward to finally being able to say this is it. This is Wide Open Road!
