Our name and subsequent story starts in a slightly unusual place.

In 1886 Vienna, Austria, a baby by the name of Karl Ritter von Frisch was born. In his lifetime, Frisch grew up to become an ethnologist (someone who studies animal behaviour), and during his heyday, Frisch studied the social and communicative interaction of European honeybees.

So you might be thinking, "What the heck does this have to do with a café in Perth?"

Well, what Frisch discovered was pretty special, so special that he was even awarded a Nobel prize for his work. Frisch found that bees are more than just mindless drones all going about their business. he actually found that bees intricately communicate and interact with one another and the environment around them to build the barć (wild beehive). In doing this, bees are able to create an amazing community that wouldn't exist without them or them without it.

Frisch and Barć is centred around community. Giving you a place to feel welcomed and relaxed whether it's grabbing a quick coffee before work, spending time with friends and loved ones, or anything in between.

We hope you  enjoy our speciality coffee, tea and food, because, our Barć is your Barć.
