The latest Devon Cafe opens its doors [gallery]
Devon Caf has opened its newest venue at Sydney’s Barangaroo.
The new caf offers brunch dishes including breakfast with the Sakumas, eggs blini, and little lost bread French toast.
Incorporating a pan-Asian influence, Devon Caf Barangaroo also includes a dedicated made-to-order Japanese sando sandwich bar, with fillings including bacon and ebi katsu, KJI fried chicken, and eggplant parmi.
Working alongside head chef Morris Baco, executive chef and owner Zacharay Tan created the sando bar with the local corporates in mind.
“We really wanted to produce something easy to take away for our customers, but we both don’t like the idea of pre-made sandwiches sitting there for hours. So we decided to make sando fresh to order,” said Tan.
Approached 18 months ago by Lendlease, owners Derek Puah and partner Noni Widjaja said Barangaroo is an ideal location for their latest opening, which swung open its doors on 14 November.
“Barangaroo is where all the action is,” Puah said. “I always wanted a site in the city, and this is an opportunity for the Devon brand to grow as a whole. If we expand into Asia Devon Caf Barangaroo will be our flagship caf.”
Seating 75 people, the space was fitted out by Matt Woods Design and takes inspiration from the former shipping yards of Barangaroo.
Devon Cafe Barangaroo is open Monday to Friday from 6:30am to 4:30pm and on the weekends from 9am to 4:30pm.
