In Detail

Overlooking picturesque Russell Square in the heart of cosmopolitan Northbridge is Opal Cafe – a classic, urban oasis reminiscent of the big-city neighbourhood cafes you so often see in the movies.

Since opening in April 2007, the cafe has become a favourite among inner-city residents and workers alike. With most regulars popping in for breakfast, lunch or coffee four to five times a week, it has secured the role of community hub. Situated amid apartment buildings, offices and small businesses, Opal Cafe has a relaxed vibe – the perfect antidote to a busy lifestyle.

Modern, urban-style furnishings fill a light, airy space and customers can choose to sit at the sleek white melamine tables – some with booth seating – or in the chic lounge area complete with leather couches and funky armchairs. All of the furniture can be easily moved into different configurations to suit private functions. Because the venue doesn’t open during the evening, functions at Opal Cafe are a great idea as hosts can have the entire place to themselves. The cafe can accommodate up to 70 people for a sit-down event or 80 people for a cocktailstyle function.

Head chef Erik Hughes has created a delicious menu featuring cuisine best described as modern Australian. For sit-down events, hosts can design their own set menu, choosing an entree, main and dessert, while cocktail-style functions lend themselves well to platters of finger food.

Should you have the venue already sorted, Opal Cafe offers a catering service, ideal for boardroom meetings, seminars and product launches – they can even deliver to your office.

The cafe is open from 7am to 4pm, Monday to Friday; and 8.30am to 3pm, Saturday and Sunday.
