We are 2042
When we started off in 2009, we were on a mission to bring out the best of the “other side” of Newtown – the south side.
Roaming through Newtown, we were surprised to not find something more homely or cosy. At the same time, there was a severe shortage of space. Too much emphasis on “good vibes,” too little focus on “feel good.”
So when we opened our doors, our priority was to provide something new by taking a step back and bringing things closer to home. Known as the “quieter” side of town, we wanted to showcase the local charm and comfort of casual dining.
We wanted to replicate the feeling of being at home. A place where going out feels the same as chilling at home. A place where the company of others is as easy and simple as spending time alone.
And our menu reflects this philosophy. Our generous portions and diverse dishes are reminiscent of home cooking and sitting at the family table.
Whether you’re looking for something to enjoy on your own or something to share, something simple or something more adventurous, we have something for everyone.
And with free Wi-Fi and couches in a relaxed, spacious setting, great coffee and an extensive drinks menu, you don’t have to be hungry to enjoy the feeling of home that we aim to provide.
Vegetarian and vegan friendly, we believe organic isn’t just better, but tastes better.
We accept bookings for groups however small or big, as well as private functions. We are fully licensed.
Located at the heart of vibrant Newtown, we are open 7 days a week, and nights from Thursday to Sunday, we are 2042.
