Located in an isolated business park near the airport, Café Aero provides local firms with a venue for lunchtime patronage and also a space to facilitate offsite meetings.  The large commercial kitchen also provides a catering service to the local businesses. 

A chilled servery cabinet at the entry draws customers into the space towards the central P.O.S. and separate honed concrete workbench for coffee preparation.  A small retail wall behind the coffee machine offers bulk beans and coffee related merchandise. 

The clean, welcoming, light filled space is divided into intimate dining zones around a central island of dimpled rubber flooring which wraps up onto full height feature screens at either end.  Pendant light fittings are suspended over the defined central space which accommodates larger tables for team meetings and communal dining.    Loose fit double sided booth seating provides comfortable private nooks to the end wall and bi-folding doors open up the café to the street.
