Barrio Eatery & Bar is now back open to the public for breakfast and lunch, and will be trading once again in evening hours by February 2020. 

Start your day with St Ali coffee and Barrio’s classic DIY bowls: nourish or bircher museli with all the toppings; delve into a hearty Argentinian mince on toast with fried egg; or indulge in our selection of Bread Social pastries.  

Barrio’s colourful salads change daily and will fill the counter alongside Barrio’s famous empanadas, fun and inventive sandwich creations, schnitzel burgers with jalapeno lime sauce, veggie burgers with eggplant bingal, and many more delights to devour with friends. 

‘Considering we have had Christmas and New Year holidays in the middle of this incident, we are amazed at how quickly and efficiently the tradies have pulled this together. Thanks to our loyal customers who have continued to visit the coffee cart daily and those who will be back once we are open for all-day dining.  We’ve missed you and can’t wait to hear what you have been up to over the holidays’ – Dan Wyllie. 

Barrio Eatery & Bar closed due to fire damage after an ember got into the extraction fan in mid December 2019.
