A Bright New Start

A bright new start is well underway! Lauren is now running the Robertson Cheese Factory Cafe, a fantastic space set to go through the roof in the lead-up to it's 80th Birthday in 2016!  Check out our facebook page to see some recent photos, and please come down to Robertson to check it out in person! 

I was going to delete the old Cafe stuff but left some of it up for nostalgia's sake....

Lauren's Cafe

Did you know we have a Book Exchange in our cafe? If you have a book or books in good used condition you can bring them in and swap them for ones from our shelf. Or, if you see something on our shelf that you like but don't have something to swap it for, you can purchase it for a couple of dollars! Easy! 

This is Ken. He's one of our most loyal friends and customers, even bringing down his own thermos of coffee when we used to be closed on Tuesdays! 

He often has business meetings or works on his designs and sketches at our big table out the front, taking his time over a coffee or two (or four, or seven). Today he's enjoying a peaceful lunch as he looks through an old book off our library shelf. 

We do love you Ken! 

A Lively and Lovely Ladies Lunch in our Little Library  ;-)  The perfect place for it! 

Another busy day baking! Today Emily has been creating a sugar storm in the kitchen as she flies through her original Monte Carlo recipe, as well as the Gluten Free Chocolate & Walnut Brownie, the (also gluten free) and the ever-popular Frangipane Tart. 

We also have Chickpea & Lentil Patties on the menu, served with Beetroot & Quinoa Salad & homemade Tomato Chutney (really really delicious, if I do say so myself) which have been hugely popular this week. 

Tuesday and Thursday are our in-house bread baking days, but after the complete sell-out of our Cheese & Vegemite Scrolls and Sundried Tomato Scrolls yesterday, I thought I'd better make some more for the hungry little people! Today I experimented with Lauren's Aioli, Olives & Cheese, and adjusted my ratio of vegemite:cheese as per small people's request (not enough vegemite mum!). I reckon they're pretty damn good!

Rave Reviews! (^0^)/

THANK YOU to all the lovely people who joined us for our first dinner of the year on Saturday night. The evening was a fantastic success with everybody complimenting Lauren on the fantastic food and service. We were really excited and energised to have the dining room bustling full of both happy loyal locals and lots of new faces as well! 

We don't do much advertising, so we rely on word of mouth and depend on our customers to spread the good word. What's that old restaurant saying? "If you're not happy with your experience, tell US. If you're happy with your experience, tell everyone!" Something like that, anyway ;-P

**Business for Sale - Expressions of Interest**

We are inviting expressions of interest in the purchase of the General Store (including the Postal Contract for the Community Postal Agency). This does not include the Cafe! For more information speak to Lauren or Alex.
