The cornerstone cafe in Melbourne’s CBD is one of the city’s best known places to get a drink and a snack, but now the owner is preparing to open a cafe with a different name: Lucky Cafe.
The cafe is a cafe to be enjoyed by those who love good food and good coffee, with the name change in an effort to appeal to the younger generation.
“We are not going to be a cafe for the young or the old, we are going to appeal,” Lucky Cafe’s owner Peter Stapleton said.
“It is about embracing a different kind of coffee drinker.”
Lucky Cafe will be run by the same staff as Cornerstone Cafe, with a focus on food and drink, Mr Stapler said.
“It is not going be a regular cafe, but we are definitely going to have a little cafe that is for the coffee drinkers, and we are hoping to have it open at the end of this year.”
The new cafe will be named Lucky Café, after the word Lucky, which comes from the Japanese word for “happy”.
Mr Stalmont said Lucky Cafe was not a cafe by any stretch of the imagination.
“We are doing a cafe that will be like a mini cafe, we want people to feel like they are at a normal cafe.”
I think that is what people love about cafes: the fact that you can sit down, get a bite to eat, have a cup of coffee and sit down and talk.
Mr Stupleton said the new cafe was in the planning stages and he hoped to open the cafe by the end or early 2018.”
People are going there to hang, to chat, to enjoy their time in the city, or just to get some coffee,” he said.
