Set inside one of the concrete towers at the top of Tamka, Labour Café’s clattery door crashes open onto a busy space that sets bare raw materials of steel, wood, concrete and brick against lashings of plant life and bursts of poster art. Crowded with creative types chatting to the sound of whistling coffee machines, it’s the sort of spot that exudes a reassuring buzz of general cafe clamor. But Labour’s appeal is twofold: if the front part is all about catching up with friends and soaking up the vibe over bagels and ‘ethical’ coffee, then outback is where the serious stuff happens – flip the back door open to discover a studiously quiet dual-level working space featuring a printer, flipcharts and plentiful light.
