THE REAL REASON WHY WE ARE HERE
We are not going to lie. This is a business and like every other business we’re here to make a living.
But, every day we open our doors with intention: to prepare Ollie a strawberry milkshake, to serve Deb her weekly brunch Benedetto (and a green tea please) and to make sure legends like Cameron and Rebekah get their caffeine fix on their way to work.
We like to chat (let us know if we’re too intense LOL), we like to hear what’s happening in your life and share with you how we’re doing. We like to play hangman while you’re waiting for your coffee, teach your little ones some basic Italian words (other than pasta and pizza) and make sure everyone is in a safe, fun and respectful environment.
We love seeing your face in the morning, we love to know that you’re well and we feel like we’re more than just café owners when you reach out for our help.
Our aim is to ensure that you feel comfortable (and satiated) in our humble establishment.
Thank you for being part of Pane e Latte.
We like to get involved with the community, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you think of ways we can be of support.
Some of our current activities:
TIP JAR TO THE RESCUE: every second month we donate your tips to awesome community organisations and charities and match them dollar for dollar. Our recent recipients have been The Cancer Council, The Royal Society for the Blind, Catherine House and support services for Kangaroo Island Country Fire Service. Please contact us if you want to nominate any amazing organisation doing amazing things.
BAMBINI AL MUSEO: do you know of any schools teaching Italian? Fundraising is fun when we know our efforts can allow kids to visit the immigration museum, learn how to make pasta or connect with their overseas heritage. Get in touch if you’d like to organize something fun (and Italian) for your kids and their peers, or their class at school.
GAME AND QUIZ NIGHTS: pick a game or theme, pick a good cause and let’s have fun. Yes, Briscola night is on the drawing board and happening soon. Stay tuned.
SPEED DATING: we did it once, and we’re prepared to do it again. If you would attend a speed dating night with proceeds going to charity, hit us up and we’ll get match-making <3
