CAD Cafe now open on Haji Lane

CAD Cafe is now open on Haji Lane serving Toby’s Estate coffee.

The place is run by designer Chad Samson and business partner David Ahier. On the menu are coffees like espresso ($3.50), Americano ($3.50) and iced coffee ($5.50). To go along with the drinks, order up pastries from The Bread Project such as pain au chocolate ($4) and an apricot danish ($4.50). There’s also a food menu featuring toasties ($5) like mature cheddar and pickled asparagus, as well as mozzarella, red pepper and walnut pesto.

They’re planning to expand the menu to include more substantial sandwiches ($10-16) like smoked salmon on a sesame bagel with caper cream cheese, chicken bahn-mi, plus a spicy indian vegetable and paneer wrap. They’ll soon have an alcohol license too. So expect beers from BrewDog, Coopers Ale, Little Creatures and Saint Archer Brewery.

The colorful space is outfitted with cool pieces like a vintage television (which they intend to refurbish into a fish tank), stools upholstered with canvas coffee bags from Toby’s Estate and graffiti art (that’s also for sale).
