Like all good love stories, it began on Tinder back in 2014 & where else but at Bondi Beach! Coming from the ghetto in Brazil, Matta up and left his family, friends, country to follow his dreams and fulfill his soul in search of spiritual and personal growth. He came to Australia & ended up meeting the love of his life. Deb had just returned from a trip to Brazil & secretly hoped to meet a Brazilian man. They finally met, fell in love and a year later they were married barefoot on the beach with a baby on the way.
Hope Road had been a dream for many years in many different forms. While working as a barista in Australia, Matta always missed that happiness and hospitality of the Brazilian people. So he knew this is what he needed to create in his own space. A place where people could really enjoy their coffee, have a real conversation, listen to great music, be surrounded by colour and experience culture. In November 2020 all their ideas fell into place when they found this little spot. Pulling down the walls and doing the fit-out themselves, they transformed this space into what it is today.
