1989 Kitchen and Arcade is a blast from the past.

1989 Kitchen and Arcade

Two guys are sitting down with coffees and a burger between them. One gets up and asks, “Street Fighter?” Less than a minute later, a 16-bit synth track and the furious tap of plastic buttons drown out their voices. Welcome to 1989 Kitchen and Arcade.

Owner Ben Campbell wanted to honour “the golden age” of arcade gaming. You’ll see this in the kind of game titles and platforms available. Along with the rotating $1 per play, ’80s and early ’90s arcades (Street Fighter 2, rightly, will never rotate out), there’s a free N64 at the counter and a handful of board games. One wall is covered in retro movie posters, another in comic strips and the rest dotted with vintage posters and prints.

The cafe is far more modern, serving beers and a quartet of burgers including an American-style cheeseburger with garlic aioli, and a more innovative sweet potato, haloumi and pineapple creation. There’s a healthier tahini-dressed brown rice or quinoa Buddha Bowl with cucumber, mushroom, sweet potato, crunchy chickpeas and kidney beans; and small selection of homemade cakes.

At night there’s more of a bar vibe, with wine, classic cocktails and 20plus beers available.
