the field office – good food, good coffee, awesome vibe

If you’re familiar with Field Office, you’re probably already in a long term, committed relationship with the sandwiches, pies and pastries, and some of the best coffee in the town (Deluxe). But great food and coffee aside, it’s the awesome vibe that keeps people returning again and again.

In the morning, {happy ours} is where you’ll find like-minded people needing a bit of caffeinated inspiration – and an apple cinnamon muffin, perhaps? Yes, please! – before starting the day. Although if you’re a morning person you can check mail or get started on some work, as there’s free Wifi. Happy Ours at the Barrack Street outlet is from 7am – 9am while at the Woodstock Branch is 7:30am to 8:30am. Apparently people start work later in Woodstock. Now you know.

The sandwiches, salads and pastries are all good, but make a point of trying a pie. You won’t find the bland, more-filler-than-filling that so often disappoints. Here you’ll find delicious combinations like Beef & Red Wine, Chicken & Lemon, Curried Veg, and Beef Chocolate Chili. And don’t forget the Fridays are PIE-days at the Field Office. Pop in for a pie and get a free coffee!

Fridays are also where commuters are rewarded. Get to either outlet by bike and you’ll receive a free Danish. Yum.

The facades and external environments of both outlets couldn’t be more different. In a city of pretty streets, Barrack Street is perhaps best described as the lesser attractive relative. Woodstock Exchange, on the other hand, is all wooden decks, trees, and the stunning Woodstock Exchange. But inside both you’ll find Pedersen + Lennard’s stylish simplicity that inspires calm and relaxation.

Both outlets are also available for hire. The Field Office hosted Wavescape 2011, has been used for movies and video shoots, and for other events, including birthday parties. The only limit is your imagination, and the number of guests. The standard fee includes a barista and cleaning lady, which makes things super easy.
