A socially inclusive coffee hub, at which people from within the wonderfully diverse community that is the New Farm peninsula can come together over an excellent cup of coffee.

The New Farm Neighbourhood Centre has always provided a welcoming and relaxing place for people to meet and tap into local support services. The Cart Community Coffee extends that welcome by providing somewhere where people can pass time with friends in a safe and relaxing environment. It also creates employment opportunities for those without work by training them to work as baristas.

Neighbours, commuters, passers-by and other members of the community are invited to stop and share a coffee in the gardens or to pick up a take-away on their way past.

When you buy a cup of coffee you have the choice of spending a little extra to pay a coffee forward for someone who is unable to buy one.

Opening hours

The Cart is open every day 6am-12pm, New Farm Neighbourhood Centre, 967 Brunswick St New Farm.

The Cart Community Coffee is an initiative of the Patrons of New Farm and made possible with the generous support of Merlo Coffee and Communify.
