Mister Zen is as soothing as its name implies. The cafe was designed, built and named by the 2015 teams on Channel 9’s The Block. Husband-and-wife team Sam and Natalie Osborne (of nearby Piccolo Espresso) manned the coffee caravan that helped fuel the cast and crew; then were offered the cafe space when the show wrapped.
Since the September 2015 opening, chef Olivier Kohen (ex-Touchwood) and his team have worked hard to match the quality of their menu to the interior’s attractive mix of cool concrete and natural timber. Signature dishes range from pumpkin smash and prawn tacos to a vibrant four-grain, almond-milk porridge.
Make yourself comfortable with 5 Senses coffee and a pastry in the zen garden; or cosy up inside with a rug, a book and the sound of a humming cafe.
