About Us

A love of food and genuine passion for providing the generosity, warmth and welcome of traditional hospitality.

Our team are passionate and energetic with a shared enthusiasm for delivering a great experience for our clients. We are detail-driven with extensive industry experience and a determination to only improve with each and every event we host and cater for.

In June 2015, we opened Long Street Coffee, a social enterprise café, providing paid employment opportunities to young refugees. Since its inception, Long Street Coffee's social mission and passion for beautiful food and exceptional service, has seen it become a much-loved Melbourne institution.

Before long the demand for our food, service and distinctive approach to hospitality, grew beyond the café.  We began welcoming people to the space in the evening and travelling across Melbourne to cater for private gatherings and creative businesses. Merchant Road is the culmination of all we have learned and all that we love about hospitality.
