about us: our story


It all started when…

Circa was founded & established by Aykut Sayan in 2010 purely for the passion of the gastronome industry. 
The intention was to provide high quality coffee and food experience in a quirky and unusual setting which would be fun.

The premises was designed based on some of the classical laneway cafe styles of Melbourne using up-cycled materials and items. 
The premises evolved naturally and organically over the years, to maximise the experience for our guests.

‘The only thing that I wanted was to share my love of food and coffee with others, thats all’.
