The birthplace of Peoples Coffee, the Constable Street cafe was opened in 2004 by Matt Lamason. ‘The early days were small and beautiful,’ Matt recalls. Back then the entire business, including the roasting, functioned in those twenty five square meters. The community of Newtown embraced the small coffee revolution happening in their backyard as their own, with lines out the door on Saturdays. That sense of community lives on today, almost 20 years later, through a melting pot of coffee lovers– a number of whom have been enjoying Constable Street since those early days.
Over the years, the Constable Street cafe has seen many different managers and team members that have each left their mark and created the space that exists today. Our current manager, Tommy, is proud of the character & colourful community vibe of Constable St. Not only is it a great place to get an amazing cup of coffee, but it is a warm community gathering space– somewhere you’ll always be greeted by friendly and familiar faces.
