No. 38 Café & Catering opened in July 2015 and is conveniently located directly across from Normanhurst Train Station.  After decades as a high-end professional caterer and restaurateur both in Australia and the UK, owner Shiva Frost realised her dream of running a beautiful café in the community she loves.  Since opening No. 38, she has used her flair for entertaining and creating great food to breathe new life into the neighbourhood.

No. 38 Café is a cosy, upbeat place to settle in and enjoy a premium Gabriel Coffee and a delicious meal.  The professionally-designed indoor space reflects the trendy yet comfortable feel of the area and makes every guest feel at home in this “hidden gem.”
