Owners Josh and Casey Cordoba bought the café in April 2019

Woods is a vegetarian and plant-based cafe located just off the main street in Bangalow’s Arts Precinct. Owners Josh and Casey Cordoba bought the café in April 2019 after returning to Australia from living abroad in London and Bali.

In an effort to reconnect with nature’s cycles and the passing of time, their menu has been thoughtfully curated, oozing with sensitivity for seasonal eating in an effort to become more sustainable and harmonious. Since making Wood’s their own, Josh and Casey have added more seating and a cooling mist system throughout the sun filled courtyard – making it the perfect hang-out for family and friends during these hot Byron Shire summers.

The menu has been updated to include a little people’s menu to keep the kids happy, as well as cold-pressed juice, smoothies and smoothie bowls. There are so many different bursts of flavours, colour and texture – from the Smashed Avo on organic sourdough, to their Japanese inspired Soba Noodles and the popular Green Brekkie Salad. The couple have also added some treats, including a chocolate brownie, salted caramel slice and more sweet delights as well as stepping up the emphasis on great coffee beans. Says Casey, ‘We have travelled and lived in many countries and have a passion for exceptional coffee! We are thrilled to collaborate with Single O Coffee, and are loving sharing this beautiful bean with our community and travelling visitors. We are also very excited to work with Orchard Street; serving their adaptogenic elixir powders, medicinal mushrooms and botanical teas.’

Josh and Casey grew up on the NSW south coast, also own a juice bar in Sydney, as well as a retreat company and not-for-profit called The Helpers Foundation (www.thehelpexperience.com). Josh played NRL for 12 years and finished his career in London before they moved to Bangalow with their two children, Tilly, 8 and Tucker, 6, who are at the local primary school. They say the best part about owning Woods Cafe in Bangalow is the opportunity to employ local teenagers for weekend work and traineeships, giving them the chance to join the workforce in a supportive team environment within the local community.
