If we had seams, they would actually be bursting because earlier this week we got a sneak peek of Moffat Beach’s newest cafe, One Block Back.
And just quietly, we reckon the Coast’s seen nothing like it.
It’s not open just yet, but if you can hold onto your wide-brimmed hats until Saturday, all the fruits of your waiting will be revealed—and they’ll be super tasty, promise!
So what can we tell you without giving too much away? Well, One Block Back is the creation of Jasmin Smith, the entrepreneur slash local lass behind the totally coveted RAWR Foods, stocked in over 20 eateries across our region and beyond. Having turned her passion for raw foods into a full-blown business in under 18 months, we’re totally backing her newest venture.
Tucked away in Moffat Beach, away from the main village, One Block Back is a cafe inspired by those in big cities like Melbourne and Sydney (Grounds of Alexandria, we’re looking at you). Housed in a fully solar-powered warehouse, Jasmin along with a dedicated crew of helpers have transformed the mammoth space in under 12 weeks.
There’s plenty of spots to down a healthy brekkie bowl or tap away on your laptop inside (yep, there’s wifi), or you’ll be able to nab a spot on the deck at an oversized picnic table on the deck overlooking the bush.
Selling sweets from the RAWR range (which you’ll be able to see being made through big glass windows that look into the RAWR kitchen), there’ll also be deliciously smooth coffee, and a brunch menu that’ll rival any you’ve seen this year—think housemade granola, pesto smashed peas on ciabatta, chilli chorizo folded eggs, and a first for the Coast, charcoal acai bowls—we’ve no doubt there’s gonna be a line up to get in to this place all summer long.
But, back to right now—One Block Back will be throwing open its doors this Saturday for the first time EVER and they want to thank YOU for stopping by with a free coffee between 7am and 9am. We’re betting you’ll find it near impossible to steer clear of grabbing something for brekkie, too.
Already got plans for the weekend? Don’t fret! We’ll be doing a big reveal of the magic that is One Block Back next week so you can get a taste of this new Moffat gem—so keep your eyes on Metropolist. We gotchu!
