Malt Pier is a cool little café and bar that brings top notch food, drinks and coffee to the waterfront at Newstead. It wears many hats; from breakfast hub, to coffee lounge, lunch destination, cocktail, boutique beer and wine bar or whisky den.
Ask owner Nick Pinn why he opened and his answer is swift, “Location. Newstead is really moving forward as a suburb and this location overlooking the river is beautiful”
Like all good locals, the residents in the building above have embraced Malt Pier like family, coming in regularly to enjoy the relaxed environment. Those in the know say you can’t go past the Portobello Mushrooms with goat feta, and the Malt Brownie is famous amongst customers and staff alike.
Head barista Junya Kato has worked within the Malt group for the past 4½ years. His expertise includes not only great tasting coffee, but also fast, efficient and friendly service. If you’re in the mood, his coffee cocktails are a must try.
