Cafe Host - Justine Burger

Justine Burger

After finding herself in dire straits and having to get a job as a bartender (without any previous hospitality experience) Justine fell in love with the industry. Almost 7 years on, she has now moved over from spirits to coffee, late nights to early mornings! (Moved from managing one of the top coffee shops to run her own place...) You'll most likely find her tasting delicious goodies in the kitchen or enjoying lengthy conversations with the cafe guests.
