Our journey began with Theo's dream of owning his own coffee shop back in 2009.
Reluctantly, I left a thirty year teaching career to help Theo realise his dream. Before too long, I came to be as passionate about hospitality as I was about education.
What began as a coffee and sandwich shop, has now evolved into a bakehouse and a two site cafe and bar.
The growth of Metro Bakery and Cafe has been a collaboration between us, our staff and our customers.
Everytime someone walks through our doors we make a promise to them. Our promise is to offer our customers the same hospitality that we would offer our family and friends.
We invite you to call in and join us for a coffee or a bite to eat.
Toni and Theo Vorenas

At Metro Bakery & Cafe, we are passionate about the promises that we make. We are committed to the highest standards of food quality and customer service. We delight in the power of food and drink to turn strangers into friends and every customer who eats with us will receive the same level of hospitality that we would give to our own family.
Taste is everything to us and no food leaves our kitchens that we ourselves would not eat. We have a ‘passion for tradition’ and at the same time, encourage innovation and creativity. We conduct ourselves with professionalism and integrity.
We are a happy team, kefi* is everything to us and we want everyone who comes through our door to feel the ‘kefi’ and to leave happy and excited to come back again.
*Kefi is the Greek work meaning the passion for and joy of life!
