who are we?

The Australian café scene is world-renowned for its innovative approach to food, café and service. Its unique mix of English, European and Asian cultures and its rich and varied produce have created a modern and singular approach to cooking.

FEDERAL CAFE represents one of the most innovative, fastest growing and most profitable cafe concepts in Spain. Its success is a direct result of the popularity in Spain of this uniquely Australian style.

The concept was created in Barcelona by two Australians; business partners Tommy Tang and Crick King. Together they brought some of the atmosphere, light and freshness of Australia to Spain. The Federal name itself comes from a very small and quiet little town located in the hills above Byron Bay, on the coast between Sydney and Brisbane.

The clients of FEDERAL CAFE enjoy healthy and delicious food, simply prepared. Its cafes are always light-filled and well designed; stylish, modern, casual and importantly, comfortable.

A key aspect of the success of the brand is the very Australian idea of continuous service, with no ‘set time’ to eat. Customers can eat breakfast at 11, lunch at 5 in the afternoon and dinner at 10.30 at night.

The menu is modern, varied and original; from muesli to avocado toast and from a roast-vegetable salad to a kangaroo meat hamburger. Ingredients are always fresh and healthy, sourced locally and ethically where possible.

Since day one, this insistence on quality, freshness and value for money has been recognised by our customers, and their numbers keep growing.
