Our collective job as a team and Reason We Exist as a business is..

To be the best part of peoples’ day.

Whether a memory with friends and family or a moment of escapism and relief; through the power of food, drink, and positivity, we make people feel good.

Our Mission

To make positive local change for global good. Through engagement with our teams, customers, suppliers and the communities where our cafes and restaurants are located, we will make incremental positive change to our environment, our communities and the health and wellbeing of all people we come into contact with.

We will do this with humility, never be preachy, and facilitate local change by offering choices rather than forced conformity or guilt-tripping.

Our Values

  1. 1) Be the best, create the best; We achieve great things by asking "is that the best?" as a
  2. benchmark in everything we do and every experience we create.
  3. 2) Kindness and celebration of diversity; We celebrate people's differences through kindness and understanding. We always seek to be kind as we can never fully know the back-story of our colleagues or customers' journeys.
  4. 3) Be humble and willing to improve; None of us know all the answers, but through humility and willingness we can always improve.
  5. 4) Accountable to our environment and those less fortunate; Our legacy will be measured not by financial success, but by the positive impact we leave behind and impact we've had on others.
  6. 5) Use the "power of everyone"; Greatness can be achieved through the collective intelligence, energy and contributions of all of our colleagues.
