La Familia – Coveted Coffee and Freshly Baked French Pâtisserie Everyday In Stafford

Baking their French Pâtisserie on site every day whilst serving specialty coffee in a pet-friendly indoor and alfresco seating area, Mark Fletcher and Amelia Chan have brought a sanctuary to local people.

“Oh my goodness! Why is the whole of Australia not talking about this place. The food is awesome. The desserts sublime and the coffee amazing.
Not sure really if I want to share about this place because as people hear about it, my favourites will be gone 😭 ”


When Mark and Amelia established La Familia six months ago, they were committed to three very specific goals:

  • To unearth the very best specialist coffee
  • To offer Delicious Fresh Fayre from freshly baked Vegan Raspberry Croissants to French Butter Croissants to Almond Croissants to French Chocolate Croissants along with scrumptious Portuguese tarts and a range of other pastries.
  • To train and employ the underprivileged and give them a go.

Mindfulness & Gratitude

Beyond providing customers with a delicious chapter to their day, Mark and Amelia also hold mental health high on their priority list, “Through initiatives like the Big Blue Table, we raise funds for Beyond Blue while fostering a safe haven for community connection,” says Mark.

As passionate advocates of Mental Health, they have established a wall of gratitude, “the wall of gratitude provides recognition to those who have contributed to our journey, while our cherry blossom tree of gratitude invites personal reflections on the meaning of family,” says Amelia.

At the end of the year, they express their thanks by drawing cards of heartfelt messages from the cherry blossom tree of gratitude with Bunnings and IKEA gift cards.

“We take the time to connect with each customer on a personal level, creating a friendly atmosphere making every visit memorable,” says Mark and the reviews of La Familia certainly prove he isn’t just making that up.

Minimine Street Making a Comeback After Covid Decimation

La Familia is located on Minimine St, off Webster Road in Stafford.

Minimine Street is famous for the annual Christmas Lighting competition when several thousand locals attend the houses that make a special effort.

Before Covid, Minimine Street had developed a thriving retail community that was decimated by the pandemic but La Familia is leading the comeback and the community feel is returning.

Mark asked a local artist to produce this painting and La Familia also educates its customers on the different taste notes of the current beans on offer.

“Genuinely the best coffee I’ve had in my entire life. The smoothies, pastries and sandwiches are also a solid 10/10. Everyone is super friendly and my days are always better after walking through the door.”


“Great music and great coffee, super croissants 🥐 hope you locals know how lucky you are?”


“Amazing coffee!!! Every food item I’ve tried has been great especially the Portuguese tarts which are perfect. Friendly, knowledgeable service.”


La Familia can also cater to large groups.

“We are championing mental health awareness and building a stronger, more connected community, one conversation at a time”, says Mark.
