The Canberra Café

In the 1920’s Cosmas Cassimiatis set up a partnership of Kytherians whose families had all known each other well from Mesa Dimos (the southern part of Kythera). The partnership became known as Cassimatis & Co. Together they set up the Canberra Café at 132 Oxford Street, Darlinghurst. The partners of the Canberra Café were: Cosmas Cassimatis, Stamatis Marcellos, Nikolas Travassaros, John Megalokonomos, and Stratis Tzannes. These partners were to become the longest continuing Kytherian partnership in Australia.

Originally the café was an oyster bar and then a fish restaurant. Around 1948 it was converted to a milk bar - which ran until the late 1980’s. The property was then leased out to Italians and became a pizzeria. It is now leased to the Court Hotel, but is still owned by the families of the original partners in equal shares, with the exception of Nikolas Travassaros who died in 1959 with no heirs and whose interest was purchased by the surviving partners.

During its heyday in the 1930’s many Kytherian events were held at the Canberra Café and it became an unofficial meeting place for Kytherians where projects of common interest were discussed and planned. One such was the setting up of the Holy Trinity Church (Ayia Triatha) on Bourke Street.

Family name: Tzannes

Panayioti and Mina Samios at Sawtell Milk Bar, Paddington, NSW

This photograph was taken in 1953, with Panayioti and his son Mina behind the counter. Panayioti and his wife Penelope and children, Toula and Mina, came to Sydney in 1947 and bought the Sawtell Milk Bar in Paddington, in early 1948. Panayioti immigrated from Aloizianika, Kythera and arrived in Freemantle WA, with his father, Mina, in 1923. He went back to Kythera in 1933 and married Penelope Samios. They had two children, Toula and Mina. Panayioti returned to Freemantle in 1937, while the rest of his family stayed in Aloizianika. Following the war, Penelope and her two children sailed to Australia and met up with Panayioti in Freemantle, in 1947. In 1948, all of the family moved to Sydney and settled at the Sawtell Milk Bar in Paddington. In late 1948, another child, George (my father), was added to the family. Panayioti Samios and his family worked in the milk bar until 1965, when they moved to Queen Street, Woollahra. The shop still remains as the Hot Gossip Cafe.

Red Rose Café

This picture was in my family's collection. There were at least 3 "Red Rose" cafés: in Guyra, Miles and Condoblin. (All three are mentioned in the "Directory of Greek Businesses" in the People/Genealogical Research section of this website).

Does anyone know which one this "Red Rose" is?

See below for the different suggestions.

The Monterey Cafe in Moree, N.S.W.

Andonis (Tony) Pentopoulos was born in 1912 in the village of Potamos, Kythera. He migrated to Australia in 1928. Before marrying & settling in Port Macquarie, N.S.W, Andonis worked at the Monterey Cafe in Moree, N.S.W, for the Andronicus family. He is pictured here (far left) standing outside the Monterey Cafe with others who I assume are members of the Andronicus family.
