New Marrickville Library cafe operator announced
Thursday, 8 August 2019
Popular Inner West business Double Roasters has won the tender to operate the cafe at the new Marrickville Library.
The new Library, on the corner of Livingstone and Marrickville roads, which has a 29 sqm cafe space on the ground floor with outdoor seating, will open to the public on Saturday, 31 August.
Inner West Mayor Darcy Byrne said the cafe would be yet one more reason for locals to visit the new Library.
“If there’s one thing the people of the Inner West love as much as a good book, it’s a good coffee,” he said.
“With reputable baristas like Double Roasters on board at our magnificent new Library, they’ll be guaranteed both,” Mayor Byrne said.
James Brown, Director at Double Roasters, said the new cafe will have a big focus on local food producers and providores.
“Double Roasters was born in Marrickville many years ago and we have always had a strong connection to the local community,” he said.
“So when the tender came up we thought it was an amazing opportunity.
“Then on our first walk though we were completely stunned and besotted with the building. It is an incredible building and we knew it would be an amazing hub for the community.
“Our vision is to create a cafe that will be the first point of call for library staff and users of the library for exceptional coffee and healthy, delicious food,” James said.
The cafe’s trading hours will be 7am-7pm, Monday-Sunday. It will be closed on public holidays.
