The journey began in 2005 when Ryan Girdler and his partner Katja took over a small cafe on Dee Why Beach. After retiring from professional football it is here Ryan developed a new passion for specialty coffee and roasting. Sebastian, their Colombian partner in crime joined the two a few years later, bringing a wealth of knowledge and business expertise to the team.
The trio’s mission is making healthy eating a delicious experience which welcomes all in every aspect. Girdlers is a health conscious, community orientated food emporium on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. It’s a place where people from all walks of life mingle and enjoy their shared passion for natural, tasty foods. From beautifully designed boho interiors to guilt free, wholesome food and a strong dedication to fresh, powerful flavours the three created more than just a cafe, but a lifestyle.
Now operating in three great Northern Beaches locations:
Dee Why, Warringah Mall & Manly, they have kept to their word, continually surprising their customers with exciting new menu items, turning the most hesitant diners into supporters of the cause. Girdlers is proud to use local suppliers and honest ingredients to support the community and embrace sustainability.
Like any decent café, they have not skimmed over a very important element; coffee. The creation of their beloved own blend “The ALL Good” has been a long, tedious process! It is brewed and served to you by their highly trained baristas to ensure the highest quality for every cup. As you’d expect “The ALL Good” is organic and free from pesticides, herbicides and any nasty chemicals!
With an ever growing market for alternative and healthier food options, Girdlers has cemented its position in the community for food and wellbeing enthusiasts alike. Whether it is for athletes, families or children with food sensitivities, vegans, vegetarians or otherwise, Girdlers is a place for all to enjoy the best things in life.
And they couldn’t have done it without their amazing team, made up of dedicated, inspiring individuals from all over the world, tirelessly working to make Girdlers what it is today – A thriving hub that can be summed up in just 3 words
