This is a critical role in the Store6 space - preparing food, planning menus using seasonal and local produce and overseeing other staff. We pride ourselves on offering an inclusive menu with ample gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options providing delicious and ethical refreshments for our visitors.

We are a newly established, independent business looking for a motivated, talented and hard working foodie who wants to become part of a successful team over the years to come. This is an exciting opportunity for a chef / cook to utilise their own ideas and offerings.


We are an independent business that is passionate about colour, fun, creativity and community. We are part cafe and shop - offering all things colourful from pencil cases to roller skates. We also believe art and design is for everyone - we stock lovely pieces to help you have a go at your own creations such as sculpting clay and screen printing kits. We have a collaboration corner which is open to local young artists to take over and display their creations!

Our food offering is consciously designed to be inclusive - offering vegan alternatives to nearly every dish on our menu.
