L-R Jurie, Mark, Dai and Kat.
This week we begin a new feature on our website … a blog. Each fortnight we highlight a “behind the scene” aspect of the café. We feature a “Who’s Who in the Village?” or a “Meet the Purveyor” mini interview. Get to know the people who serve you or are involved in preparing your meals. Find out more about the food we serve – many of which comes from our spectacular region!
