Two Chaps is a from-scratch cafe and bakery in Marrickville with a sustainable approach to all aspects of its operation. Alison Chamberlain introduced me to to Two Chaps and I introduced Julie Pierce. I love the feel of the place – no flash fit out but with serious tools of the Cafe trade.
They operate on a collective creative energy, a strong sense of responsibility with respect to food production and consumption and their engagement with the local community.
The ever-changing, produce driven menu is a product of their enthusiasm for working within the seasons and they have a strong focus on local supply and supporting like-minded producers.
All of the bread and pastry is made by hand, daily using sustainable and organic Australian flours. Their sourdough levain is the life of all our loaves and is used to produce a wild-fermented bread.
The coffee is roasted nearby by Microlot Coffee Roasters and they often feature guest specialty coffees from various friends around the country.
They are also the birthplace of Sticky Chai, a raw honey soaked spiced chai tea that is made in the warehouse behind the cafe and distributed Australia-wide.
Three nights a week they keep their doors open for an ever changing dinner menu of handmade fresh pasta and local cheeses.
Just up the road from the Mud Factory at 122 Chaple Street, Marrickville.
