Questions and Answers

What's Your Story?


Out of a humble garage in Abbotsford, the vision of Au79 – to create one of Melbourne’s premiere cafes – was brought to life.

The simple idea was to share our passion for coffee, thus having a roastery on site and to source the best coffee beans from all around the world. Driven by a very passionate and dedicated team, it quickly turned into an ambitious project, where the same values were implemented into every corner of the cafe.

Our new dream then became – to be of Gold Standard in everything we do. Thus, an on site bakery, patisserie, chocolatier as well as function space were added to the picture. Seating over 200 guests, the amazing fairy tale came to fruition. Now everyday we get to share this story with our customers and guests and can’t wait to continue this journey with each and everyone of you.

Amazing venue and exceptional staff!! Couldn’t recommend Au79 higher to anyone that is considering the venue for a wedding or function. It is such a beautiful space, the food is amazing and the event manager Ricki was a delight to work with!! Ricki worked to make our wedding night unforgettable and the staff were also very hospitable. Can’t wait to visit for brunch soon to reminisce in this beautiful space!


Thank you, Helen, for your kind words! It was delightful working with you two. We hope to see you both again soon!

A gorgeous venue that we used for both the ceremony and reception. It was so wonderful to be surrounded by plants the entire night. The food was amazing - they had specifically designed a vegan menu just for us! So happy we went with them.

When we came across AU79 we knew it would represent our relationship perfectly, being brunch fans and having our first date as a brunch date. We met with Julia and Laurence and we knew it was the one! Through the whole process (even a postponement due to COVID) they were so lovely and helpful. The night of our wedding was perfect and the venue gave the best atmosphere and so nice to have everything (ceremony ad reception) all in once place, you didn't even notice the staff changing the chairs out after the ceremony! The food was a dream!!! Everyone loved it and their range was fantastic *Chef kiss!* We would recommend AU79 to anyone looking for their next wedding and or function or even a new brunch spot!!

We cannot recommend this venue enough, from having to postpone 3 times and finally having a successful 4th time, Julia and the team were so accomodating with everything we needed. It’s such a beautiful venue and we can’t thank them enough for creating our perfect night!

Cannot recommend this venue enough for a wedding!! Honestly Julia and the events team were absolutey incredible in putting together the wedding we wanted. We opted for a cocktail party style event. We even saved money on flowers and decor because the cafe space is usually decked out with stunning indoor plants, fairy lights and other decor so we didn't have to do anything to the space at all. Au79 also have seated/plated meal options if you're after a sit down wedding. They specialise in seafood so had heapssss of options. We even had a fresh oyster station and also a grazing table. They were super accommodating to all dietary requirements for all guests. Thanks so much for the team at au79 for exceeding our expectations and being a dream to work with. Highly recommend having your wedding here!!
