No. 68 on Commercial Road is a comfy and homey cafe from a pair of Sydney ex-pats who sought an opportunity to put their hospitality experience to the test in an area that was crying out for a cafe with a strong identity and focus. With recycled furniture aplenty and space to move, this family-run business is looking to put a unique spin on Newstead’s foodie scene. Both a breakfast and lunch menu features, with a selection of dishes infused with Asian-inspired twists featuring. Vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free eaters are amply catered for, and patrons can bring their dogs and dine on the outside deck while sipping on coffee from Parallel Roasters or tap beer from All Inn Brewing. The coming months will see the introduction of nitro coffee, healthy meal preps for those that are too busy to cook, and a menu of cheap and cheerful specials for anyone seeking an inexpensive dining option.
