Commuter Cafe


Commuter Cafe

Cycling to work is one of the easiest and most time-efficient ways to fit exercise into a daily routine, plus it helps the environment and you save money on petrol!

It’s a win-win for everyone, however despite the obvious benefits in cycling to work, there often never seems to be a good time to start doing it. Devonport City Council hopes to make that decision a little bit easier, by providing a free nutritious breakfast for cycling commuters at the Commuter Café.

Council successfully applied for a grant from Healthy Tasmania to set up the Commuter Café, with the aim of improving health and wellbeing outcomes for the community. In addition to a healthy breakfast, guest speakers may also attend on occasion to provide information and advice.

Devonport Mayor, Councillor Annette Rockliff, said “Breakfast at the Commuter Café will be a great way to start the day. If you are an experienced rider, perhaps now is the perfect time to encourage a work colleague, family member or friend to join you in cycling to work and then enjoy breakfast together. If you are new to cycling, it could be a great opportunity to start a new healthy habit and to make new friends.”

Commencing on National Ride to Work Day on Wednesday 21st October 2020, the Commuter Café will run every second Wednesday until 3 March 2021, at Pinctada Kitchen, shop 1 Providore Place, with breakfast available between 7:00am-8:30am.

To secure your spot, please register through Eventbrite.
