Lewin Street Cafe

Bardon

In a leafy Bardon street, Lewin Street Café is a quiet refuge for those looking for a spot to refuel, reacquaint or relax. 

The site of this suburban cafe has seen some changes over the years. Roughly 40 years ago this was the local butcher’s shop before becoming home to a spiritual healer. What eventually  became The Lewin Street Store is now a quaint little cafe with a laid back and friendly vibe that is sure to keep locals and visitors coming back for more.

Tables and chairs on footpath

Lewin St Cafe is clearly a community hub with Mums, Dads, kids and friends gathering and owners, Michelle and Jess offering a warm welcome. The local community recently supported a Pozible campaign run by these two women, which saw much needed funds for rezoning of the site raised through community crowd funding.

Open for breakfast and lunch, there's a lot to like about the Lewin Street Store. Unassuming in appearance, the cafe offers friendly service, breakfast, lunch, tempting treats, good coffee and a great place to meet up.

Baguette sandwich on a plate

Bardon mums, Michelle and Jess use sustainable and organic produce and ingredients where possible. The combination of Allpress coffee (roasted in Burleigh Heads) and Barambah Organics milk is a winner and a great way to start the day. Organic breads come from Leavain daily and on weekends pastries from Crust & Co are available to enjoy with your chosen brew.

It's hard to ignore the Calmer Sutra Sticky Chai (from Melbourne) on the menu and the banana loaf with hand-churned butter makes the perfect accompaniment for this delicious drop. For something savoury try Pialligo prosciutto, buffalo mozzarella, tomato and basil on organic sour dough. The prosciutto is sustainably farmed and smoked in Canberra and is delicious. 

Piece of cake and pot of tea

The kids haven't been forgotten here with babycinos, milkshakes, smoothies and Streets ice-creams on hand to keep little cafe visitors happy. Perch on stools at the bi-fold window and beautiful timber bench or take a seat on cushion topped milk crates at one of the outdoor settings. Either way you’re in the perfect spot to sip and just watch the ebb and flow of the Lewin Street neighbourhood.

For customers' convenience both Barambah Organics milk and bread from Leavain are for sale daily at the Lewin Street Store. Whether you’re looking for a break from the daily grind or are just in need of delicious milk or great organic bread, head to the Lewin Street Store and say hello to Michelle and Jess.
