Lonsdale Street Roasters
Cafes - Braddon, ACT
Lonsdale Street Roasters started out as a simple idea: source quality coffee, roast it, pour it; all under the same roof, right in the heart of Canberra.
After years of working in and around Sydney and Newcastle, Alastair Evans developed a passion for coffee that needed an outlet. That outlet had to be back in their hometown of Canberra, and it had to be on Lonsdale Street. In 2010 this became a reality.
Previously known for it’s car yards and petrol stations, Lonsdale Street was about to experience a revolution. Alastair had a vision to transform this street into what it is now- a thriving urban hub of boutique stores, restaurants and great coffee.
The focus has and continues to be on the coffee, but the arrival of Paul Hutt saw the addition of paninis and delectable pastries to the menu which won the attention of the SMH’sGood Food Guide.
