Say hello to Three Williams, the best café on what used to be the wrong side of the tracks. Triple-cooked chips, a naan bread Ruben hybrid that will melt your mind and loads of whimsical touches like stripy straws and old school milk bottles are what make this so much more than a neighbourhood diner.
The sparse, urban interior
Gentleman extraordinaire Glen Bowditch leads the floor team at Three Williams and a flock of highly strung baristas knocking out Single Origin goodness, the service is as good (or better) than many white linen joints at a fraction of the price.
The greatest Ruben in the world
The café itself spans a generous 280 square metres and offers free WiFi and power points dotted around the venue. Seating up to 60 people at a time, and able to fit over 100 people cocktail style, Three Williams will be fully licenced in just weeks and offers a fully flexible event menu including canapés, share platters, buffet-style, alternate drop and a la carte.
