A family business

Your hosts Bill and Chris Spathis opened Decoy Café in Flinders Lane in 2005. They moved to their larger premises at 303 Exhibition Street when they decided to start on-site, small batch coffee roasting. 

Before opening Decoy, the brothers established and ran Retro Café, located next door to The State Theatre in Sydney’s CBD and a Sydney institution for about 15 years. 

Bill and Chris have been involved in coffee since the mid-70s in the family coffee lounge and then their own café businesses. They are delighted to welcome you to Decoy Café.
