An epic Xmas and New Year. Holidays are over and kids are back at school. Make sure you enjoy some weekday and weekend chill out at PB. Great coffee, savoury and sweet snacks, light lunches and salads, or our special burger challenges. Don't be a stranger!

OK, no more excuses. Signs are up. Here we are, Pitch Black Cafe at Rivett Place, Rivett. You can see this sign when you fly in from the north!

We've had a soft opening, getting all the systems and procedures in place, training staff, letting our customer base grow organically. We decided to put some A frame signs out to bring a few more people in this weekend, and some big name-signs will go up on the fascia in the next few days - which...

Urban Industrial

Great coffee Not fast food, and not fussy food - we do not want you leaving hungry! V and GF options.

When we renovated the cafe it had been closed for nearly a decade. Everyone who passed the door stopped and looked in and said a cafe was just what Rivett needed. We've used the old security grills and doors as wall decoration and are trying the urban warehouse feel.  

We have a small continental deli section starting up with some really special stuff.

As we see what people like, we'll make it a bit more personal. We love our customers but we are not fast food, and our chairs are padded and comfy  - we do give directions to McDonalds at no charge! Bring your bubs, kids and dogs - we have 10 high chairs, and water bowls.
