If you’re ready to take flight on your next great adventure, then don’t miss out on the opportunity to get onboard with this fantastic new venue, set to open late 2021 – early 2022.

This brand-new hotspot located in the beachside suburb of Hampton, will be café by day and hip lounge bar my night. Open from 6am to late, this is the local’s café that they feel they have discovered for themselves, but everyone knows the secret.

You will have the opportunity to design and deliver an on-trend menu with the freedom to showcase your talent and whatever drives your personal style. Part of your role will be staff development and training along with creating a ‘team mentality’ environment with a passionate energy and drive.
