Worship of the almighty coffee bean is a universal religion that brings us together in peace and harmony every Sunday. And Monday. Oh and Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Service takes place in many buildings around town however only one structure truly befits our tasty overlord. That place is Chapel on Little Ryrie Geelong.
This glorious structure originally opened on 1st November 1857 as a Baptist Church, and is an interesting and important part of Geelong’s heritage.
It was unused for 10 years and at that point a proposal to convert the site into a cafe was accepted. The side of the building was opened up to allow for the large doors and balcony. This also brightened up the chapel with stunning natural light from the east.
They serve Two Seasons’ coffee which takes a novel approach of providing the drinker with at least two varieties of coffee each year making it a diverse but constant cup.
Stunning doesn’t fully articulate the atmosphere of Chapel on Little Ryrie Geelong. The high ceilings, colourful glass windows, and touches of the original chapel all combine to make it a unique place to sit and get inspired or share fun times with friends.
There’s a perspex pit where you order containing miscellaneous religious relics. You almost feel like you’re going to fall in.
For people with prams there’s a huge amount of space which also converts to a function room at night and on weekends. Both the breakfast and lunch menus are broad and delicious.
Some of the breakfast options on offer are banana bread, french toast, waffles, porridge and bacon & eggs. Lunch options span from shepherds pie, meat balls, kebabs and salads to a full range of burgers.
Find Chapel on Little Ryrie Cafe Geelong at 10 Little Ryrie Street. You kinda can’t miss the building!
