Café Parliament on King
Food from the homelands of refugees
Parliament on King has made the news for its important work with refugees and asylum seekers, organising barista training sessions, providing a catering service which employs them, and running a Saturday family dinner service which dishes up those feel-good feeds made by refugees and asylum seekers employed onsite. A café, a bookshop, a place to work, play, or meet new people, Parliament have an old hi-fi with a record player and an iPod dock, both of which you are so totally welcome to play your favourite Skrillex album from. There are also adult Show & Tell sessions, Sri Lankan Feasts, and live gigs too. Though they are all about community and kindhearted happy good times, Parliament do also serve food. They brew Little Marionette coffees and we are pumped for their jaffles, which they butter on the outside, French style. A basic jaffle is only $5.50, and you can add whatever you like for 50 cents each.
