Cafe & The Merri

Update: Tuesday 27th January 2015

We know you are all waiting with bated breath for the new Café to arrive – as are we!

Following a late discovery of a sewer easement, which required some re-jigging of the Café design and placement, we are pleased to present the most up-to-date plan for your perusal.

For the first part of this year we will work with McAllister Alcock Architects Pty Ltd as they prepare detailed designs and construction documentation to present to Moreland City Council. We expect construction of the new Cafe building to commence in July.

We will update you throughout the year as developments occur. Please direct any questions and comments to:

"Expect the unexpected" applies to all CERES site improvements and the cafe rebuild is no exception! A sewer easement lies under the footprint of the planned new building and this discovery has slowed us down.

In the meantime CERES Excursions is very pleased to make use of the old cafe deck as a very welcome shelter for school groups over the cold and windy winter. Visitors are also invited to make use of the decking in Melbourne's famously changeable weather. 

Our cafe play space is available and being upgraded all the time - Earthship Australia were here earlier this month building a retaining wall and fixing the roofing on "Djabril's Hut"

Update: Monday 28th April 2014

The CERES Organic Cafe has been a much loved institution at CERES serving us all delicious coffee and beautiful organic food; rain, hail or shine. After over 15 years of operation the CERES Cafe closed on Friday 18 April 2014. We would like to thank all of the CERES Cafe staff past and present who have worked tirelessly throughout the years to ensure that we are all well fed when we are at CERES. The Merri Table and the Market Coffee Stall are serving up fresh, delicious organic food including some old favourites every day of the week. And the ever popular "nature play space" by the old cafe is still very much accessible.
