Alowishus is delicious at The Lakes
A LITTLE bit of pot luck has helped Bundaberg cafe Alowishus open its second business at The Lakes.
Owner Tracey McPhee said the cafe took over the lease at the coffee shop after making an impression at an event earlier in the year.
"We catered a sales function five to six months ago which was run by Lend Lease," she said.
"And the girls who organised the event stayed at Bargara but there was a blackout and they couldn't get breakfast so came into town and they enjoyed the food they had at the event and this is when we talked about it.
"So it was a little bit of luck was on my side."
Mrs McPhee said the cafe would cater for residents, their family and guests and would employ two staff members to operate it.
"We will add a third staff member in the following weeks to cover lunch also," she said.
"It seems to be very popular with the residents and after the opening we even received thank you cards from them.
"It will be a place for them to meet and form meaningful relationships. Some of them may not have had the chance to do this in the past and we are happy to help."
Queensland Retirement Living acting regional manager Evan Higgs said Lendlease was thrilled to offer residents such a fantastic service at the heart of their village.
"The cafe offers a wonderful community space where residents, families and friends can come together and enjoy each other's company," she said.
