Phoenix rises from ashes
SEVENTEEN months after Biggenden Country Cafe was devastated by fire, Cafe Phoenix has risen from its ashes.
Tomorrow night Dean and Lisa Fotheringham will host invited guests from the business community for a dinner to showcase their menu.
Doors will open to the public at 8am Saturday.
The Fotheringhams, along with children Cooper-Anne and Angus, came to Biggenden in 2007.
They are looking forward to working together in the new premises, open seven days a week from 8am–8pm.
“We will be offering the normal takeaway meals but will be providing morning teas and restaurant style meals along with pizzas and pastas,” Mrs Fotheringham said.
The Fotheringhams will be making their own cheesecakes, apple pies, meat pies, sausage rolls, spring rolls, battered and crumb fish made from the catch of the day, as well as potato scallops.
“We will be having daily specials but the family meal of pizza, garlic bread and four soft drinks will be available all the time,” Mrs Fotheringham said.
Functions’ catering is available or there is in-house seating available for 20 guests.
Come and enjoy a quiet coffee with a friend in the lounge or alfresco dining out on the veranda.
There will also be a tourist information centre attached to the venue.
OPENING SATURDAY: Lisa Fotheringham will open the family-run business Cafe Phoenix, this Saturday, in Edward St, Biggenden.
