We are a busy cafe and this is a fast paced job that involves lots of standing & moving! Front of house pitches in with dishes, takes & delivers orders, makes drinks, serves baked goods and generally does a little bit of everything so flexibility, enthusiasm, and a good memory is key. Barista experience with a manual espresso machine is lovely but we can train the right person! I
