The sly fox rides over the lazy cafe

By poetix 12 February 2013 26

lazy fox

Here’s something new: a bike-path side café.

I was feeling a little lost as my daughter was off on camp, so I went for a ride, and came upon this little bit of free enterprise on the bike-path between MacArthur Avenue and David Street in O’Connor.  And yes, it’s all properly approved by the Authoritahs.

The very chatty Patrick made me a very good flat white and forced half a very good brownie upon me, ignoring my talk of health and fitness.

The Sly Fox, as it’s known, makes coffee for all between 7.30am and 11.30.  You can sit there on a milk crate, or take it away.

A really nice idea, I think, and the sort of thing that we need more of in Canberra.

I had a chat to him, he has a hawkers license, which means he has to be like 150m from the road, which rather limits where he could set up. He isn’t on the path on weekends, but I’ve seen him at a couple of weekend events and festivals. Certainly makes good coffee, and seems like a lovely guy, I wish him well.

Now we need one called Drunk’n’Skunk, so I can have a pint of ale on my way home from diggin’ holes and driving trucks….

Shot the fox, serving sneaky little vodkas would be nice for when I’ve been mining the poesie. Imagine the AHA though…

Keeping left – check. Let’s hope the coffee machine has a bell or the walls fall down. Oh – hang on …

You missed the part in the OP that says this place is allowed, because they have already been approved by authorities…

Indeed I did. I’ll have to spread the word then, after I stop off and try a cup. And hey look, a Sly Fox facebook page.

I don’t understand how he managed to get approval though.

All he needs to do is move to the median strip near an intersection somewhere on Northbourne Ave, and he could do coffees AND clean windscreens as well.
