“It’s called Hills Bros. It will have a fair influence from Reuben Hills but it will be a new venture,” says Reuben Hills’ roaster Reece Cooper. The cafe will provide the same high-standard coffee as Reuben Hills and PCP with what Cooper calls “approachable” food.
“Stuff you can eat every day,” he says, “but there will be a few rich treats with some influence from Reuben Hills, and there might be a few classics in there.”
The menu is yet to be developed, but Russell Beard, Reuben Hills and Paramount Coffee Project’s owner, says it will be catered towards takeaway, with salads and bento boxes.
Beard has been working with architect Alana Cooke to create a cafe that will meld into the lobby while still invigorating the space. Building, which has just started, will finish in late February or early March, with the current cart continuing to run until the cafe’s ready. “The building already has a lot of people in there. They are our customers, so there'll be a transition to the full concept,” Beard says.
