OWNERS of a cafe that recently opened in Joondalup aspire to become coffee artisans in the northern suburbs.

The dream of running a coffee and food business for John Konstantopoulos, his wife Erika, and childhood friend Justin Patterson became a reality when they opened the Paper Avenue Cafe.

“Our offering is modern Australian food with a fresh coastal feel,” Mr Konstantopoulos said.

“We are working on becoming coffee artisans in the north and potentially across Perth in the future.

“We are focussing heavily on amazing coffee as well as a variety of alternative brewing options such as siphon, cold brew, cold drip (and) pour-over methods.

“We are also moving away from traditional alternative lattes like beetroot or turmeric and have brought in a fresh new variety like our ‘strawberry swoon’ (strawberry and rosewater) or apple matcha.

“This allows us to provide a number of cool varieties for all seasons – both hot and cold refreshing drinks.”

The Burns Beach residents serve meals between 7am and 3pm with a menu that includes buttermilk pancakes, free range eggs on toast, vegan field mushrooms and beef brisket brioche.

Mullaloo artist Peter Ryan created a mural for the cafe on the corner of Davidson Terrace and Boas Avenue, which opened in September.
