When the Piccolo Bar Cafe – the oldest coffee bar in Kings Cross – closed its doors after 65 years, it was mourned deeply by the community. The iconic coffee bar saw legends such as Geoffrey Rush, Judy Davis, Jeff Buckley, Dorothy Hewitt and Peter Allen walk through its doors and sit in its booths. Siblings Shamus and Eulalie Moore, who had been long time frequenters of the boho joint, have given Piccolo a new lease on life – aiming to preserve its 65 year history and legacy. Reopened a week after legendary owner Vittorio Bianchi hung up his boots, Piccolo Cafe has continued to house the stories of those who visit it. A new era is being ushered in with an updated menu and revitalised look, but the famous portrait wall remains; remembering the compelling characters who had once passed through.
