we love coffee
Arnold will be serving delicious organic, fair trade coffee. Our cups are biodegradable and lids are compostable. We also use liquid sugar to cut down on individual sachet packaging. Our loyalty cards are very generous - every fifth coffee for free!
all sorts of beverages
Feeling cold - how about a velvety white hot chocolate. Feeling hot - milkshake or mango mania frappe? Australian grown teas and chais. And of course your regular soft drinks. Arnold can please all tastes.
Arnold will have a changing menu to keep his customers happy. Pies and sausage rolls. Vegetarian options too! Freshly baked sweets treats, bickies and bites!
who WAS Arnold?
It all started BACK...
In 1950, Ron Arnold, who lived in Melbourne built a little caravan for himself and his wife out of timber and bondwood. They decided on the colous of duck-egg blue and pastel yellow with a splash of vintage red. In 1953, Ron felt that it was a little chilly on their trips away so he clad Arnold in aluminium.
We found Arnold in Adelaide and the previous owners (who named him Arnold) used him for the odd trip away but struggled with the caravan's tiny proportions. Anyone over 5 foot seven inches would! His interior and exterior showed signs of wear and tear but also how well Arnold had been loved.
Instantly we knew he was special. At a snail's pace we towed him over 1400kms back to the eastern coast. We had his chassis replaced, gave him brakes and then began on the interior. Everything we could save we did. Each hinge, handle and knob was restored. His tiny seating area (that converted into a miniscule bed) now houses the fridges and coffee machine.
Onto the outside and stripping back layers of paint to reveal beautiful timber windows. Then came the hardest part. Polishing away decades of dirt and grime to give Arnold his sparkle back!
Arnold is one of a kind: a tiny caravan with a huge personality.
