Closed Monday 22 October

Next Monday we are replacing our kitchen’s mechanical exhaust canopy and fan. This will ensure that the air quality inside our kitchen and our cafe is clean and comfortable for you to enjoy coming into our busy spring and summer months. However, because it’s going to be quite a big job – removing the existing system from the kitchen and lifting a three metre long canopy into its place, we will need to close for the day to make sure it all goes smoothly. This is because we will need to move and unplug various equipment (including the coffee machine) in order to be able to do this.

Why are we doing this?

You may have noticed that our little cafe gets a little stuffy inside sometimes. The air is filled with the delicious smell of food and coffee, but sometimes it’s a little too delicious. That’s  because our poor exhaust system can’t keep up! So in order to have a cafe with great atmosphere and great air quality, we need to install a larger system.

Also, without an upgrade, our poor staff will be working in a stuffy kitchen in the summer and we can’t have that!

When will the cafe be open as usual?

All going well (fingers crossed) we should have the old system out on Monday morning, and the new one in by Monday afternoon and Little Hawk Freo will be open for trade as normal from Tuesday morning at 6.30am.

Thanks for your understanding and support!
