Allpress is a Sydney based coffee roaster providing fresh, high quality coffee. Our speciality Arabica beans are of the highest variety sourced from all around the world, blended together and roasted using hot air roasting technology. This method roasts beans evenly in a stream of hot air with no risk of scorching or tainting and produces cleaner, sweeter tasting coffee every time.
Stone & Wood:
Stone & Wood Brewing Company was founded by three blokes who share a love of beer, taking a fresh approach to brewing handcrafted beer in Byron Bay, one the greatest places on earth. Our brewing philosophy is based on brewing beer that makes the most of the ingredients available today. Beer that simply lets the flavours and aromas of the ingredients shine through by keeping the processes to a minimum. Beer that is simply good to drink. Our beers are an expression of the Stone & Wood approach to life – trying to take things slow and keep it simple.
Sydney Food Trucks:
The Nighthawk Diner:
The Nighthawk Diner was founded by a couple of young chefs with backgrounds in French fine dining. They have been borderline-obsessed with American culture since they were raised feeling as though Chevy Chase was the father every boy dreamed of, and Sesame Street was just a suburb over. You can expect handmade deliciousness that includes re-worked diner classics like the cheeseburger and milkshake. Non-bastardized, handmade simplicity – all ingredients including the bun, made from scratch.
The Veggie Patch:
The Veggie Patch Van will catch your eye with its farm barn looks but dig a little deeper and you will find high quality vegetarian food using seasonal produce sourced from local growers in NSW, a nod to the ‘paddock to plate’ movement aimed at reconnecting growers with diners. The environment also gets a look in with the van’s exterior made from re-used wood, solar power and all waste produce including packaging being compostable.
Bite Size Delights:
Bite Size Delights offers quality baked products and drinks with a menu featuring a range of traditional Maltese pastizzi, baked freshly on site. These popular and tasty handmade pasty pockets are filled with everything from the traditional spinach and ricotta; pea, lentil, fetta, chicken and mushroom; to beef curry; salmon, dill and ricotta; and chocolate.

We have also created a line of Baking Kits, where you get all the dry ingredients and recipe. These make a whole cake, slice, biscuits and other yummy baked goods. We have then moved into traditional sauces, past down from Emma’s Mother, from her Mother. I think the recipe come from her Great great grandmother in the end. However we have added spices and herbs to make them new. We also have a Chai Tea Range and hazelnut Dukkah range of products. We source local produce for our sauces and the herbs are grown in Australia. Our batches are made before the market so freshness and quality is achieved and in small batches.
