East Borough – New Iconic Eastside Cafe

Brought to You by Possum IT

Paul & Makeeley Abraham, who most would know from previous ventures Corner Store, Long Lost Friend and Local Crowd, have opened East Borough in the premises previously housing Bar 9 on Glen Osmond Rd in Parkside.

Whilst Paul grew up with restaurants in the family, they felt with a hand in so many businesses that they were spreading themselves a little thin, so sold up, left the industry, and spent a year and a half focussing on their food delivery business for people living with dysphagia, The Caring Kitchen, while they recuperated and kept an eye out for a new spot to start afresh.

When the Bar 9 site became available they knew it was time to jump back into the fray. Whilst taking over the site of such an iconic coffee house was daunting, their previous experience in the industry was invaluable in understanding what the local market wanted and needed.

Makeeley says “We just had to think ‘Ok, what does the local area call for?’ and that’s something that we have done before, which is just good food, good service, a family-orientated space.

“It was such an awesome coffee hub, and yet maybe not as much a food hub, and so we wanted to marry both, I suppose, and make it a bit more of a local hang out, as far as not just known for its coffee, but known for everything together.”

For their POS system requirements, they turned to Possum IT and OrderMate, like thay had in all their previous ventures. “The guys at Possum IT know the industry, they know us and how we work, and they always look after us” said Paul.
