Močan & Green Grout
Močan & Green Grout is a cafe with a conscience. It serves fair trade coffee, sources produce from local farmers, composts its own waste and even grows vegies by the front door. The cafe fosters local and Australian art and design, regularly inviting artists to reinterpret and redecorate the space alongside handbuilt bicycles and other cycling goods by Močan brothers. Močan & Green Grout is an ethical cafe that’s just as much an art and lifestyle experience as a great place to meet.
