True to its name, The Lab is the result of great chemistry. It’s the creation of science-and-coffee-lover Jodi Duyster and David Tonellato, owner of @313, the medical placements building The Lab is housed in.

Chef Yani Theodoros (ex-Stanley Bridge Tavern) completes the formula. His all-day breakfast and lunch menu features cafe classics – eggs, smashed avo, burgers and sandwiches – alongside linguine, handmade gnocchi and Thai beef salad. A selection of sweet treats rounds out the offering.

Drinks include smoothies, juices and Mocopan medium-to-dark roast coffee served in glass beakers, pulled through a Nuova Simonelli espresso machine.

Timber tables and Scandinavian-inspired chairs add a touch of warmth to the cool white decor, which is peppered with test tubes, anatomy books and scientific artifacts. A small room for quick coffee meetings is hidden behind a periodic table.

Upstairs, @313’s separate function space can hold up to 150 people.
