The Vintage Pantry café turned one on November 15, celebrating a successful first year at the Pitt Town shops, says owner Jane Stephen.

“It’s been an amazing year! We are so lucky to have had such great support from locals who have become amazing regulars of the café,” she says.

The café has 18 staff members who have all loyally stayed with Jane over the year, helping to make The Vintage Pantry a success. She says her staff are all like family to her, and includes a few actual family members!

“Our menu has changed twice so far, and we always take the time to ask our customers about their experience and get their feedback. Everything we make is with love,” says Jane.

The Vintage Pantry is thoughtfully decorated, with a rustic-style charm and many vintage pieces that Jane has collected which have special meaning to her.

Her favourite items are the collection of vintage couches and chairs in the middle of the café.

“I picked them up individually over many years. There is one couch I found in Melbourne and another from the Hunter Valley. Amazingly they all match!” she says.

A Pitt Town local, Jane says she loves meeting new Vermont families.“It’s great to see people who have just moved in, are building, or looking to buy here come in for a coffee,” she says.

“I am so blessed to have such lovely customers who are so positive about the café.”
