The Venue

The Café is a brand new opening in the Lower Blue Mountains, 10 minutes away from Penrith and 2 streets away from a train station. It will be bright, with a beautiful light and modern fit out with indoor and outdoor seats. These guys are all about their specialty coffee!

They are getting a high-end, specialty coffee blend and single origins to bring a premium coffee experience to their area. Paired with Artisanal Donuts, and freshly made gelato, everything will be in-house, artisanal and delicious.

The Role

You will be focused on the day-to-day running of the Café and taking ownership of the space. The owners are a husband and wife team looking to grow this business, and they are seeking a Café Manager with a passion for coffee to come in and help launch the venue.

Your day to day will be opening the venue in the morning, getting ready for service throughout the day, and leading a small team of baristas and all rounders throughout service whilst interacting with customers, working with the head chef and managing the venue. Other responsibilities include writing rosters, cashing up, ordering and accounting.

The owners are after an operator who will take the reins of the venue so they can focus on opening their next series of cafes… with their new one on the way in the next couple of months. They are after either a strong Café Manager or a Venue or Restaurant Manager who has the barista knowledge to come in and lead the team and run the show.


The owners are looking to open 5 days a week to start, and hopefully expand once things are running. You will start in the morning and work until the early afternoon. You own all your nights! It will be up to you to manage the rosters and your hours, anticipating 40-45 hours for the opening.

The Perks

This is really the opportunity to run a venue yourself and have the opportunity to get the exposure to the business strategy. You get to put your stamp on a well set up, well-planned and beautifully designed Café, with all the hard work and construction down and get the ball rolling.

Great renumeration with a salary range of $80K-90K+Super.
