Located nearby to their debut venue on Southampton Street, the new Bedford Street venue – called Uncle Zorro - will be split across two floors with a ground floor cafe with through-the-window street service and some internal seating and a 40-seat bar below that will be open until 12 am.
The cafe will have a focus on takeaway serving a specially-created blend of coffee as well as grab-and-go food options such as salads and hot sandwiches while the downstairs will have a 1970s influence and serve a range of Australian wines alongside natural and biodynamic wines from new and interesting producers around the world alongside a list of cocktails.
Antipodean and South American coffee house Abuelo was launched by mother and daughter Lynette and Cloe de la Vega in 2018
“Our approach to hospitality focuses on creating experiences and atmospheres through design, and we believe in meeting this with informal service and food style that feels cosy and friendly,” says Cloe.
“We believe this is how we can create places that become your 'go-to', not just somewhere you go to once or on a special occasion.
