Renovated West End Cafe Offers Immersive, Full-Service Dining Experience

This West End cafe has never looked better. If you haven’t paid them a visit yet, then it’s time to check out the fresh look of Veneziano Coffee Roasters on Montague Road.

Veneziano Coffee Roasters has been serving up West End locals with coffee goodness for more than a decade now. And with the opening of its 80-seat Richmond cafe and the flagship espresso bar in Surry Hills in 2018, a West End venue update needed to happen; and so it finally did.

After a COVID-19 induced delay, Veneziano Coffee Roasters West End relaunched early this year with a revitalised look. The coffee joint now sports a new bright and airy space dotted with greenery that easily pops out against the all-white palette surrounding the space. Wooden chairs, marble-topped tables, and a vaulted ceiling complete the refreshed look. The venue can now accommodate about 50 customers indoors and another 16 outdoors.

An interesting addition to the shop is a glass window that offers diners an immersive experience as it provides a full view of the roastery from the dining space where they can see the shop’s behind-the-scenes operations. Another window gives visitors a view of the expanded training studio next door where barista and latte art training classes happen.

Along with the updated design, Veneziano Coffee Roasters likewise introduced its new full-service menu offering lunch fare with vegan and vegetarian options including Chilled Coconut rice pudding with seasonal fruits and dehydrated mandarins. There’s also vegan croquet with house-made cashew cheese and pesto and Montague Benedict or poached eggs served on zucchini fritters with a citrus Hollandaise and crumbled feta.

Lunch offerings include burgers, burritos and smoked ham with vintage cheddar, beetroots, grilled stone fruits and seeded mustard. Whilst sweet treats including Brioche French Toast as well as sandwiches and bagels will still be on offer.

As for the caffeine fix, espresso, cappuccino, latte and filtered coffee are among the choices. Other beverages like hot chocolate, chai, milkshakes and smoothies are also available.

Veneziano Coffee Roasters West End is open 6 am to 3 pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday; and from 6 am to 2 pm on Saturday and Sunday.
