"I am surprised that Leichhardt needs another coffee shop, barber or used car sale yard, particularly ones that are hidden away at the end of an unloved back lane. Perhaps the deck is an attempt to convince customers that this lane is not the…"

"The hours posted on the front of the building reveal that Kollector is closed on Tuesdays but open on the other weekdays 7am to 3pm and weekends 8am to 4pm. Seems to be a second hand car dealership with coffees.  https://kollectorcars.com/"
