An after hours cafe? What are you guys thinking?
Yes, yes, we know it's an unusual and somewhat risky idea...
But we thought we'd give it a go!
Kita means "us" or "we" in Bahasa Indonesia.
We are a family run establishment, with years of hospitality experience behind us - consisting of a father who's an emergency services shift worker, a mother who brings the Indonesian flair all the way from South Sumatra, her two brothers who have perfected a Mie Goreng, and a son, barista at heart with a mission to change the night scene in Canberra.
So, as far as we know, we got this! Kinda...
Now that you know a little more about us, let us tell you why we have created Kita.
The after hours resonates from the father's workmates always having issues finding decent coffee and a place to eat post 9pm. Combining this with the mother's Indonesian influence and family recipes, and the son's love for hospitality, we opened our doors in 2018.
We wanted to create a space where someone can experience great food, great coffee, and excellent service at anytime of the night.
We aim to cater for all shift workers, service people, uni students (we have free wifi!) and literally anyone else that is fed up with Canberra being dead after 9pm.
A nocturnal hotspot.
Welcome to Kita.
