Laissez-faire caters for YOTS Cafe, one of the many facilities at the Australian National Maritime Museum. Located on Darling Harbour and with views of the city skyline, YOTS Cafe is attractive due to its open-air dining. This is in addition to the cafe's combination of Fish & Chips restaurant culture and sustainable practices in everyday operations. The licensed bar at YOTS Cafe provides a unique experience for guests to the Australian National Maritime Museum.
