Whether it’s hole-in-the-wall bakeries or more OTT brunch spots, cafes in Parramatta are continuing to up the ante. Joining the list is a brand new spot that’s bringing a bit of history, tradition and very good coffee to the suburb. Set in the historic Female Factory, which operated from 1821 to 1847, Havenstone is an ideal breakfast spot to soak up some history, have a lazy brunch and indulge in some people-watching all while enjoying a slice of the past. The cafe is spearheaded by head chef, Anthony Doueihi and will be open 7 days a week.
Havenstone Cafe, Parramatta
Following a careful restoration project in North Parramatta, the cafe has now officially swung open its doors. Locals are invited to sit back, sip, and watch the centuries go by.
Menu offerings include satisfying dishes such as the mushroom bruschetta croissant, house tea smoked salmon and elderflower pavlova. The surroundings and decor are classic with a touch of modern aesthetics.
Celebrating its opening in style, Havenstone is inviting the local community for a special lunch on April 1 from 12pm-2pm. There are picnic hampers, live music, games and autumn sunshine to enjoy in the alfresco space. Restoration of the heritage Female Factory site also includes the Western Sydney Startup Hub, a co-working space for entrepreneurs and businesses.
