Freshly brewed St Ali coffee is available daily from 7am-3pm in the Habitat courtyard.

A fire at Barrio Eatery & Bar last Friday has seen the two-year-old business close its doors for repairs.

Staff at Barrio are currently waiting for more information on how long it will be before they resume their normal operating hours once again.

Co-owner Dan Wyllie says that on behalf of Barrio he’d like to say a huge thank you to the Byron community, local emergency services, staff and Habitat residents who have been invaluable with their help at this time. ‘I’d like to say a  special thanks to A Little Hopper who have kindly loaned us their coffee cart, ensuring our regular customers get their morning caffeine fix.’

Freshly brewed St Ali coffee is available daily from 7am-3pm in the Habitat courtyard, alongside pastries, nourishing bircher muesli and hearty sandwiches to be enjoyed al fresco.

Barrio would love to reach out to local businesses looking for casual staff over the holidays, as they have an amazing team ready and willing to work. Email: [email protected] for more information.
