About The Dept

The Dept coffee bar is located on the corner of Egmont and Devon Streets and it has carved out an enviable reputation for its excellent coffee and cabinet food. With much of the CBD’s economic activity moving west towards the Len Lye Centre and the White Hart precinct, The Dept enjoys the good vicinity. The team knows that there is an established cliental with a taste for The Dept’s Ozone Coffee and cabinet food, but we are more than just a regular the coffee bar. The menu is extensive, diverse and modern, with plenty of gluten-free, organic and vegetarian / Vegan options, all sitting alongside the old favorites.

Recently we have introduced refreshing Bubble Tea. Bubble Tea is originally from Taiwan but is now loved, prepared and enjoyed globally.

Our menu also offers freshly made Smoothies & Juices as well as some plant based options and some healthy shots.

Children are well catered for too, with an extensive list of drinks and food attractively priced – and they’re fresh, healthy options.

We have an express window which can serve coffee and cabinet food in a contactless way.

Excellent service - I asked for a soy latte and green smoothie, and they checked if I wanted the smoothie dairy free and offered soy or almond milk. Great environment with soft lighting that was nice on my early morning eyes!

Business lunch at The Dept. cafe was dynamic and fresh, the same as their food. Calamari were very light and possessed that pure taste of fresh seafood. Big breakfast was nutritious and satisfying. Staff were happy and warm and we were satisfied with the prices of our meals.
