So the Broadsheet Cafe has closed after 11 bustling days of trade with our favourite cafe operators and coffee roasters. It was a lot of fun and everyone involved had a great time. So we wanted to say thank you to all of those who made it possible.
It's not an easy task to set up a temporary cafe in a small, gallery-like space in the middle of the city with no running water. For the duration of the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival we opened the cafe bright and early every morning at 7am and brewed coffee and steamed milk until 6pm. People came daily, or dropped in over the weekend to sample different beans. The response was fantastic across the board. We’re quite sad it’s all over to be honest.
While all good things must come to an end, you'll still be able to visit the cafes for coffees and your favourite beans all over town:
Dead Man Espresso
Other thanks go to Jardan for the furniture, mag nation for the magazines, LuxBite for the macarons, Earl Canteen for the sandwiches, Baker D Chirico for the pastries, Procal for the milk, Feel Good Foods and Spiral Foods for the Bon Soy soy milk, Biopak for the cups, and of course our friends at Studio Round for the design of the space and help along the way.
Where to next for Broadsheet and our collaborative projects you ask? You’ll have to wait and see. In the meantime, pick up a copy of the autumn issue at all of these above cafes and many other spots around Melbourne.
