Mono is a creative hub bringing all the good things in life together in the form of a Coffee Bar, Store and Workroom. We are nestled down a laneway off the main street which opens up into a walled courtyard where we grow our own herbs in a pallet garden. Look out for the fabulous wall mural done by local Jack Brommel. We did the fit out ourselves with the help of family and friends in 2014 focusing on a monochromatic theme using ply, black painted pallets, white walls and concrete floor, with the aim of creating a relaxed and contemporary vibe.
Whilst we are a Coffee Bar, not a cafe, we do have a pretty impressive cabinet stocked with Brekky Buns, Chia Pots, GF Berry Granola pots, Salads and Toasties if you are looking for something a little more substantial. By the way, as an owner of 2 dogs we are happy to have your dogs join you for a coffee in our courtyard (as long as we get to have a cuddle!)
We use Crema Coffee which roasts an organic blend just for Mono. We pride ourselves on our coffee making skills and in making sure you get your coffee just how you want it. Add one of our homemade cakes or raw slices and you've found your perfect match.
Our Store area is a collection of contemporary items which are ever changing. Currently stocking Status Anxiety, MRKT, OliClothing, Clean Slate, Smith & Co., Urban Originals, Ucon Acrobatics and Hammered Leatherworks to name a few.
Our Workroom is a combined space where you are welcome to sit and chat over a coffee, work on your laptop or join in on one of our creative workshops.
We opened our sister store next door in the laneway called LeafLove in September 2016 after we found our plants were taking over Mono! We lovingly call it our 'jungle'. Indoor plants, pots, hangers, planters, stands, cacti, succulents, terrariums and plant styling and advice is our focus. We have a couple of tables in there too so you are welcome to bring in a coffee from Mono and relax amongst the plants. We also run plant related workshops as part of our Mono workshop program.
We are pretty active on instagram for both stores so if you would like to see more of what we do:

Come and say hi when you next visit:)
