A friend later informed me that the staff that had worked at the old café would be reopening as a new business. Since it’s opening I have visited a few times. I still see the same happy faces, my favourite breakfast item is still on the menu PLUS they have added waffles! The tea has changed but I haven’t tried it so I can’t report on that, and there is also no sign of my rose water donuts yet. Oh, but did I mention the waffles? Waffles, waffles, waffles. Seriously, eat the waffles.
Does it feel like my old local café? Honestly, no, not just yet. I am still getting used to the new vibe, BUT I think I am only a couple of serves of waffles away. Hello my new friend, nice to meet you.
