So, we are temporarily closed due to COVID-19. But that's definitely not the end. We will review the situation every week, and if we can develop a delivery model that protects staff and customers, and can continue to provide great coffee and take away we will kick off again.

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.

Staff are very friendly and helpful. The food was just what I expected. The cheeseburger with the handmade burger was a combination of melted cheese, bacon and jalapenos with just the right amount of sauce. My colleagues and I will definitely make Pitch Black our new local. See you again

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.
