    Café Series - Shop 225

    Café Series - Shop 225

     

    Meet Lorenzo Tron, the owner of Shop 225 that proudly serves St Remio Coffee! We sat down with Lorenzo to talk about his restaurant, his passion for food and of course, coffee.  

     

    Tell me about how SHOP225 came about?

    Roberto, my business partner and I, wanted a great pizza place next to our house so Shop 225 was born!

    What can guests expect when they visit?

    Our guests can expect great service, a warm ambient venue and incredible food and coffee. We strive to ensure our customers have a great dining experience.

    What inspired you to start your restaurants?

    The concept for Shop 225 came about when my wife and I turned vegetarian. My wife was also unable to digest gluten and lactose, so we started doing vegan and gluten free dishes. That way no one gets left out and everyone can eat together.

    What made you choose St Remio Coffee?

    We were looking for a local coffee brand with the Italian taste. We love our coffee and wanted it to be like back at home in Italy. There is nothing worse than finishing a great dinner with a bad coffee.

    What is your go-to coffee and how many do you drink a day?

    We mainly have it at home or at the shop (we are very fussy) some days we can go up to 8 cups!

    What is your signature dish(s)? 

    Zio Pino pizza and Lasagna or Alla Norma.

    What would you say to other people considering opening a café or restaurant?

    It is hard. Be prepared to put lots of hours in. You must have a passion for coffee, food and a love for people.

    What is your life motto or the best piece of advice you ever received?

    If you love what you do you will never work a day in your life.

    Café Series - Ovolo Hotel and Lona Misa

    We are so excited to be the coffee partner for the Ovolo Hotel South Yarra and Lona Misa restaurant. We spoke to Jaqui Rosenstengel the Food & Beverage General Manager to learn more about how the new venue and how the brand aligns with St Remio.

    What can guests expect when they visit?

    A fun & unique dining experience, great service, fabulous vibes.

    Ovolo South Yarra blends past, present and future. The hotel is a place where retro chic and pop art collide. Taking its design cues from the days of disco, rock gods and retro glamour. The vibe is bold, creative, and unpredictable. All mods, zero cons: Ovolo South Yarra brings a fresh injection of energy into Melbourne’s -hottest cultural destination.

    Lona Misa is a rebellious renaissance from root to stem. Enter a timeless scene with Latin loved persuasions to revel amongst friends, to siesta, or simply sit and pass the time. By day stop by for a casual bite, coffee, or fresh juice in the café. By night stay for something a little more, a lively Latin bar and dining experience boasting a heavily vegan menu with vegetarian options.

    What made you choose St Remio Coffee?

    Great quality coffee & broad range of products. Ethically sourced coffee beans & a company that celebrates the people behind their great product.

    Is sustainability important to you?

    Yes. Sustainability helps us to improve the quality of our lives and the diversity of life in our ecosystem. We should practice sustainable living and encourage others to do the same as well. 

     What is your go-to coffee and how many do you drink a day?

    Long Black – about 3 a day 😊

    How you can make a difference with your coffee cup choice!

    How you can make a difference with your coffee cup choice!
    We all like to help contribute to the sustainability of the planet and be a little greener where we can. So, why do most of us still opt for the disposable takeaway coffee cup when we grab our morning coffee? We know they are bad for the environment, we know that most of them aren’t even recyclable, but we still choose to use them all the same.
