About Us

The Buzz Mobile Cafe was the brainchild of John Garfi; created so you can experience quality coffee and home made food at your office, public outdoor event or private function.

"The Buzz is so unique because it's an independent, family owned and managed business," says John.

"We are not part of a franchise, so we have the flexibility to travel to wherever we are needed. Our other point of difference is our food. My wife and I each have over 25 years of experience in the hospitality industry and are qualified chefs. Whilst other food retailers claim that their food is fresh, a lot of it has a shelf life of up to a week. All our food is prepared on the day with high quality, fresh ingredients and real passion for great taste behind it."

Testimonials

On behalf of the Wise Connections team as well as Holcim management and guests, I'd like to genuinely thank you and all of your crew for your fantastic work in making the 2017 Holcim Grand Reopening Day at the Footscray Concrete Plant so successful.

The feedback from all involved has been excellent, especially from the Holcim executives, and reflects the thorough enjoyment that the guests received from sharing the day with their colleagues and families. I'm sure plenty of event guests tell you that unlimited coffee is their favourite part of the day, and that certainly seemed true for some of ours! I really appreciated your willingness to help us create solutions like bringing along the extra cart to serve soft drinks. This great result would not be possible without the effort, professionalism, flexibility and friendly welcoming nature of you and your staff and we are so grateful to you for your contribution.

A huge thank you to John, Helen and Frank from The Buzz Mobile Café for supplying the amazing coffee and delicious food for our recent client breakfast. The whole team have been excellent to deal with throughout the entire process. Nothing was too much trouble. The set up and pack down was very swift and professional. I didn't even realise Frank had left he was that good! We will definitely book The Buzz again for these types of events.

Thank you for your service today at Greensborough. We had a great birthday with beautiful coffee and a wonderful smile from Frank the barista. The baby chinos were a hit and Liz loved her hot chocolate with caramel. Great work Buzz!

Our experience with The Buzz Mobile Café has been exceptional. They assisted us with a 3-day main event, supplying us not only with a variety of food and drink choices, but fantastic customer service. They have always been accommodating, whether it's to our budget or event requirements, and have been a pleasure to work with both leading up to our event and helping us on the day. Both our staff and our customers were equally thrilled with the unique attention and customer experience we received. We look forward to working with the team in the future.

On behalf of Guide Dogs Victoria and Perfect Events I'd like to thank you for the seamless process of providing The Buzz Mobile Cafe at the Dogs Unite event on Sunday - it was definitely a popular location!

The site looked amazing, and the weather was awesome which definitely helped - the bones (appropriate word for a Guide Dogs event) are there for what will be an even better event in 2016, which I'm hoping you can again be a part of.

Hi John,

Just a quick note to say thanks for being the coffee provider at the inaugural Maldon Swap Meet last June. Your coffee was a great hit and gave us all a much needed start on a cold June morning. You have a great set-up, and I was particularly impressed with the way you just got on with it, once you got shown your location. One less thing a frazzled event organiser needs to worry about. your coffee is great and you're a true professional. I wish you all the best for the future, and look forward to working with you again.

Dear John,

I would like to thank you and your wife Marnie of The Buzz Mobile Cafe, as well as David & Ana Kolembos from Your Private Chef for the provision of top quality coffee and food at the recent 2014 Eildon Junior & Women's Cycling Tour.

It was the first time we put on coffee and food at the event registration centre and considering you catered breakfast, morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea, we put a lot on your plate! The parents who were watching their children compete outside were delighted with the hot drinks and delicious food that was delivered to them via the van. They were also appreciative that they could preorder drinks and snacks to take back to their accommodation.

We were really impressed with the seamless service, your professionalism throughout the event and the price point, standard and variety of food and beverage on offer.

I would highly recommend you to other organisers who want their catering in safe hands!

Race Director


We as a club have utilised The Buzz Mobile Café on several occasions to cater for us for our Social Meets. John always has a great variety of food, is reasonably priced and most importantly makes a mean coffee! We will continue to use The Buzz Mobile Café as our Go-To food bus for the above reasons and the brilliant service we receive whenever they join us.

Dear John,

Just a note, John, to say thank you for the exceptional service you have given myself, staff and clients over the past year.

We have all been very impressed with your friendly, helpful attitude and of course your amazing coffee. Good service such as yours is hard to find these days, and I just wanted to let you know that it didn't go unappreciated.

You made dealing with The Buzz Mobile Cafe a real pleasure, we look forward to a long association with you in the future.

Kindest Regards,

Glen Coutinho
