Introducing Dash Coffee

The Mandarin Centre would like to introduce you to Lucia, the Dash Coffee café owner and operator.


Lucia comes from Italy’s capital, Rome, and brings her Mother’s famous cake recipes with her to her cosy little café on the ground floor of the Mandarin Centre.

Lucia has been in Australia for over 6 years, but has also spent 7 years in London, where she was a restaurant and a café manager in Piccadilly Circus, learning the art of great food quality, preparation and excellent customer service! She has a smile for everyone and will happily tell you that all her food is authentic Italian fare and lovingly home made.

Lucia’s most popular dish is her Ricotta Cheesecake, telling us cheekily that her customers like it better than a very well known Sydney family-owned business; but of course we can’t mention any names.

Her Italian Tiramisu is very popular too, but she also serves a great range of savoury food including her chicken focaccia and her renowned Lasagne!

So, next time you are at the Mandarin, do yourself a favour and try some yummy Italian home made food at Dash Café, Ground Floor, Mandarin Centre.
