Now brewing at Melbourne Airport

Veneziano Coffee Roasters has recently arrived at Melbourne Airport, Terminal 1. 

We caught up with Craig Dickson, CEO and Sarah Eagles, Brand Strategist for Veneziano Coffee Roasters at the airport cafe launch to learn more.


Terminal 1, home to Qantas Airlines has undergone a significant upgrade of its retail facilities and outlets to ensure it continues to reflect the best of Victoria. Included in the upgrade is the latest Veneziano cafe.

Veneziano, was born in Melbourne and is iconic to Melbourne café culture. We have been sourcing, roasting and supplying coffee to specialty cafes for over 21 years. Our headquarters in Richmond, Melbourne boasts one of the most immersive coffee experiences in the city with the café nestled amongst the roastery, cupping lab and training studio.

 “We were thrilled to be invited to bring Veneziano to Terminal 1 at the Melbourne Airport. It’s a huge opportunity for us showcase the best in Melbourne coffee culture to the 9.2 million travellers passing through Terminal 1 each year" says Craig.

 “For us, bringing a slice of our home in Richmond to the airport is really special. When travellers stop by Veneziano in Terminal 1 they can expect the same amazing coffee they get in our flagship stores, plus a range of delicious meals designed by our head chef. And a little secret, grab yourself a jar of our specialty instant coffee and you’ll be able to brew your own cup wherever you like – even on the plane.” 

The airport cafe with a capacity of 55 seats has a design that takes inspiration from Richmond and other Veneziano cafes around Australia. “We’ve pulled some core elements from our Richmond cafe, like our trademark blue finishings and a bright, open space, to create free-flowing movement - but it’s quite different from anything we’ve ever done. We want each of our venues to have their own individual vibe” says Sarah.

We are serving the crowd favourite Elevate blend for takeaway and dine-in coffees, as well as a selection of single origin coffees for black or filter drinkers. You can even pick up a cold brew coffee in a can in one of 4 flavours for the perfect pick me up before your flight. Beverages can be paired with an in-house dining menu reminiscent of the classic dishes available in Richmond. 

See you airside at Terminal 1 for a brew.
