Food ThingsThe Brickmakers Arms Building was established in 1853 and ran as a successful hotel for years, quenching the thirst of many locals. Having gone through many changes of face and surviving two fires, Brickmakers Arms Building finally closed its doors and remained closed for nearly 12 years. Brickmakers Arms was in much need of a face lift and given a new lease on life and a new name Ten One Ate Cafe. It has been no surprise that it sparked much interest from the locals who were keen to see the doors open and start serving the community once again as a more laid back organic cafe. “I wanted to provide a venue which was sophisticated without being pretentious.” Steven Patruno Today, Ten One Ate Cafe is more than just great organic food, locals can come in for a organic coffee, glass of local wine, enjoy a fresh smoothie out on the terrace in the sun, family or with friends in a relaxed, friendly environment. Ten One Ate offers a Cellar which can be reserved for private dining for up to twenty-two guests, with a beautiful glass wine cabinet displaying an impressive wine list. Enclosed are various packages designed to give flexibility and variety for your function needs.

Came for a catch up with a friend, had a great breakfast and were treated some free delicacies that had been photographed for promotion and were perfect but unable to be sold. Matcha crumpets, chocolate shake and divine burger. The owner is a friendly, professional and generous man 🙂
