Tuck In to cafe’s top tucker

Central and North Burnett Times - - TASTE BUDS OF BIGGENDEN -

NEW kids on the street are Gale and Greg Aberdein at Tuck In Café in Edward St, hav­ing re-opened on July 17.

From that par­tic­u­lar Thurs­day to the Mon­day the busi­ness went through 30 litres of milk while the fish and chips proved pop­u­lar.

Mrs Aberdein said the menu has the nor­mal café food.

“Pa­trons are able to order take­aways or dine in air-con­di­tioned com­fort,” she said.

“For those who en­joy a drink with their meal, the café has a BYO li­cense.

Even though it is win­ter, the soft serve and thick shakes have been pop­u­lar.

The kitchen will be closed to or­ders at 7pm each day.

Mrs Aberdein said Fri­day, Satur­day and Sun­day nights have been hec­tic but they are look­ing at a spe­cialty night once they get them­selves into a rou­tine.

“We are re­ally ap­pre­cia­tive of how the com­mu­nity has sup­ported the re­open­ing of the café,” Gale said.

“It is early days but things are go­ing fine,” she said.

Gale has ex­pe­ri­ence in the food in­dus­try hav­ing run the kiosk at Par­adise Dam when Greg was the ranger there.

Daugh­ter Leti­tia, who has worked at a cafe for the past 18 months, has joined her par­ents in their new ven­ture.

Gale said for peo­ple also not to panic as they are con­tin­u­ing their mow­ing and handy­man/clean­ing busi­ness.

“We have found Tues­days a bit qui­eter so we are go­ing to trial clos­ing at 2pm on that day,” she said.

Tuck In is able to cater for any func­tions be it morn­ing tea, lunch, af­ter­noon tea or din­ner but book­ings for larger events are re­quired.

“We would wel­come any feed­back on how busi­ness can be im­proved,” Gail said.
