Great location in the new light industrial estate. Plenty of seating both inside and outside. The breckie wrap was one of the best I've tasted and the milkshake was also perfect. My first choices were both unavailable due to supply issues but friendly helpful staff meant it was not a concern. Second choices were amazing. Nice ambience in the cafe. Local businesses are fortunate to have this cafe nearby.

Empowering Lives.
Developing Pathways.

Community Group of the Year Finalist 2022

Every Story Matters!

Our unique model of employing people with additional needs means we can bring dignity and worth that empowers individuals to gain social skills and improve confidence in a variety of contexts. Our positive environment helps all our team to be a better version of themselves and we have seen some of our staff overcome some pretty big barriers and gain confidence to take on other paying jobs.

We employ NDIS recipients (Community Participation, SLES or Supports in Employment   eligble participants)  that are in need of developing skills with customer service, hospitality, as well as reducing anxiety.

As we grow as a charity, we are hoping to provide more opportunities through our food relief area, gain confidence in our business development and community engagement.

It is through this model of empowering lives and ensuring that all our profit is returned to the community is how Rhythm Initiative was awarded the 2022 Community Group of the Year Finalist by Federal MP The Hon. Andrew Wallace.
