Additions and Alterations Night 2012

Hello lovers!!

Well guys, last Friday we celebrated our second annual Additions and Alterations Night and what a night it was!! For those of you who don’t know, Additions and Alterations  night is a big party we throw once a year at the cafe to celebrate the cafes anniversary and our major mid year menu change. We make 100 invites and hand them out to every regular customer that we see until they run out. First in best dressed style…obviously we didn’t have the room to invite every single one of you so we decided this was the most fair way to handle invites so we didn’t have to pick and choose. DON’T MAKE US CHOOSE  WE LOVE YOU ALL!

The beer and sparkling vino was flowing, we had fabulous entertainment from Cam “LifeKoach” and Brooke and the whole cafe had a great party vibe. Our superstar chefs cooked up a storm of all the new menu items and our gorgeous front of house babes bought them around to the hungry masses with flourish! We all got pretty merry, in fact there may have even been a little dancing on the bench tops… oh it was such a fun night!! So good in fact that there have been whispers and suggestions that maybe once a year isn’t enough.

To those of you that made it, we hope you had a blast! I know we said it on the night but we will say it till we are blue in the face if we need to, we cannot do this without you! You guys, our fabulous, amazing customers, you make Cafe 140 the place that it is. Without you embracing our craziness we are nothing, we appreciate the shit out of you all and every single one of us is grateful to be able to work in a venue that is so full of fun. Keep it up and we will too!

Please enjoy a few photos from the night and if you came along and took photos, pretty please upload them to our facebook page or just tag cafeoneforty in your on Facey, Twitter or Instagram.

Love and bacon, Caz and the 140 crew!

 

You got social media? So do we!

If you are a regular to the cafe you have probably noticed us taking photos and tinkering around on the 140 iPhone, now you may think that we are awfully rude and are texting our boyfriends but you my friends would be wrong because what we are doing is keeping you guys as up to date as we can with everything Cafe 140 related!! Now let me tell you how to find us!

Got Facebook? Go ‘like’ our page and find out what daily muffins, soups and tasters we have available. This is also a good place to ask us questions that don’t require an immediate response.  We only check Facebook a few times a day so anything you need to know urgently you should call us on (08) 9721 2254.

Maybe Twitter is more your thing? Follow us!  Updates from Twitter get sent straight to our phone and if we aren’t busy we will reply, but again, urgent requests? Call us instead! We update Twitter with the same things as the Facey page!

Facebook and Twitter are also the place to keep an eye on if you are interested in working with us because job openings are generally posted on those two sites before they show up anywhere else!

How about Instagram? Our handle is @cafeoneforty. Our Instagram account often gets a workout during the day and it is the place to go if you like seeing behind the scenes stuff, latte art and general Cafe 140 shenanigans!

That’s all folks! Come find us and share us with all your friends!

Love Caz and the 140 crew

Cafe News April 2012

Hey guys!

 

Can you believe it is already April? I swear we were only just saying Happy New Year and now I am surrounded by Easter eggs! Time has certainly flown by and it has been a busy year for us all at Cafe 140. We have been training up our new Baristas and that takes a lot of time. All our girls have been doing so well and there have been many proud mama moments when they finally get their milk silky and their rosettas defined. If you have liked our page on Facebook or follow us on Twitter you will probably have seen the photos of their progress. It is exciting to watch them grow and waiting for that moment for it all to click into place and they suddenly turn from trainee barista to barista and then eventually to super barista!! Mel is off her training wheels and is getting closer and closer to super, while Emily and Ali are both just a hair away from ditching their training wheels for good too. Soon all the girls will be smashing out award winning coffee!

 

Speaking of award winning coffee…..we just found out that we won Lifestyle Food’s I love Food Awards Favourite Coffee award for Western Australia!! EXCITING!! You probably heard the squeals of joy that erupted when Kristy called me to tell me the news. We are so proud of our girls and so grateful to all of you for voting for us and helping us to make it! Who knows, next year we might take out the national award! We love food and we love Cafe 140!!

 

Well that’s all for now, hope to see you soon around the cafe, until next time don’t forget that our weekday frittata is now always prepared gluten free and is the perfect option for a quick lunch!

 

Love Caz and the 140 crew xoxo xxxx
