Independent coffee shop ‘Joe's + Bros’ are expanding their operations into the city with a second outlet opening up on Winthrop Arcade on Oliver Plunkett Street in the coming weeks.

The business was set up by experienced service industry workers who joined forces to open up shop on Gillabbey Street in 2017.

Recently, planning permission was granted to the company, Greenridge Ventures Ltd, to amalgamate units two and three on Winthrop Arcade and change the use of unit three from retail to restaurant.

The development will also include new signage, changing over from previous holders ‘E A S T by The Rocket Man’ and new sash windows at Unit Two.

Joe's + Bros joins a growing number of independent coffee shops in the city, including Soma on Tuckey Street, Alchemy on Barrack Street and The Bookshelf on South Mall.
