about matinee coffee


Matinee Coffee is an 80 seat café located in Marrickville in Sydney’s beautiful Inner West. It’s a spacious place where couples, friends, families and parties can sit comfortably and enjoy themselves without knocking elbows or waiting ages for a table. Big groups can be accommodated easily without a reservation, just rock up and we will serve you.

We make our own pastries, sodas and relishes, roast our own coffee, cook a range of delicious dishes and have a liquor license if you’re after a tipple. We are open 7 days from 7-4 (our kitchen closes at 3), no bookings necessary. If you’re vegan, gluten free, dairy free, meat loving or have other dietary requirements, we have lots of choices for you.

Our café is owned and run by Charles Cameron, an Inner West local who has spent more than ten years in the hospitality industry making sure people enjoy their weekdays and weekends with excellent coffee, food and service. He loves the diversity, energy and creativity of Sydney’s café scene and he named his cafe Matinee because cafes should be a daytime show where everyone is welcome to have a great time.

We hope to welcome you to Matinee soon. It’s always brunch o’clock somewhere!
