90 Maribyrnong Street Footscray 3011



This multi award winning cafe is one of Footscray’s best kept secrets. You know those places that you want to tell everyone about but also want to keep it all to yourself? Well There Cafe is IT!

Located in an old wool factory on Maribyrnong Road, this stunning cafe was created 2018 and was formally known as – “There”. This impressive space (223sqm) has been meticulously designed by Ewert Leaf, an award-winning architecture firm. Over $700,000 was spent on the transformation and the space they created is timeless, showcasing a balance of industrial edge and comfortable touches. There are two walls of floor-to-high-ceiling steel-framed windows complimented with a stripped-back fit-out. The furniture and fixtures are stunning with polished concrete floors, brass signage by Studio Tops, wall lights from Fat Shack Vintage, planters and pale timber tables plus huge vintage black factory lights from Amsterdam hang from the ceiling giving the space a very cool warehouse chic vibe.

The cafe is currently closed, however, when it was open it was highly successful trading for Breakfast & Lunch – 6 days. Currently the space is being used for photoshoots, pop up events and catering as it has two large commercial kitchen areas. One of the real upsides to this opportunity is to use the massive space to its full capacity, you can run a private event in the separate functions area whilst still operating the cafe in the front area. There is also a mezzanine office space which could easily be used as a co-working hub or private work area plus extra storage for the cafe. A purchaser has the opportunity to reopen the venue and continue running as a day focused cafe & function venue or alternatively there is huge scope and demand to convert the space into a night venue.
