Since opening Tiisch in the middle of 2016, owners Sarah and Sven Sander have been run off their feet. That’s to be expected when you smarten up a city block with a good-looking, sharply designed and environmentally friendly cafe. With the husband-and-wife team preparing to add Saturday brunch to the menu, expect things to get even busier.
“So many people told us they want to visit but find it hard because we’re in the CBD and only open during the week, so they never get a chance,” says Sarah. “We thought we’d open to all those people. We love sharing our passion for good food and coffee with as many people as possible.”
“The concept for our cuisine is simple, good food that makes people happy,” says Sven, the cafe’s chef. “We would like for people to feel like our guests and to be able to dine here daily and be better for it.”
Opened in June, Tiisch is located in a heritage-listed brick building in the city’s upwardly mobile west end. The cafe’s greenery-filled interiors are a pleasant contrast to both the building’s outer walls and the city. Plants are supplied by Little Leaf Co and Green World Revolution helped establish the windowsill garden that supplies some of the produce used in the kitchen.
“We wanted to create a simple yet relaxed and inviting atmosphere,” says Sarah of the cafe’s breezy aesthetic. “A bit of an oasis in the hustle and bustle of the CBD.”
On the brunch menu expect a combination of Tiisch’s most popular breakfast and lunch dishes including the matcha pancakes, avocado toast and the cafe’s popular pastas.
Those in a rush can stop in for an expertly brewed coffee served in Tiisch’s signature, Instagram-friendly blue takeaway cups.
