Big Or­ange of­fers fresh op­tions daily

A range of freshly made food avail­able

Central and North Burnett Times - - REAL ESTATE RESIDENTIAL -

THE Big Or­ange has adapted its busi­ness over the years, from be­ing just an or­chard to a café that of­fers a se­lec­tion of fresh choices for morn­ing tea and lunch.

Big Or­ange owner Neil Richards said di­ver­si­fy­ing the busi­ness was what has al­lowed them to keep the busi­ness run­ning.

“We were an or­chard sell­ing fruit and now we are more of a café sell­ing food,” Mr Richards said.

Mr Richards said of all the op­tions on their menu it was the scones that were their spe­cialty.

“The scones are our spe­cialty here I’d say, they are freshly home made ev­ery day,” Mr Richards said.

“Every­one com­ments on how good they are, so the com­bi­na­tion of our scones with some Devon­shire tea is al­ways a hit.”

The Big Or­ange also of­fers a range of freshly made wraps in­clud­ing a ba­con and egg wrap, chicken wrap and trop­i­cal chicken wrap, as well as a range of break­fast op­tions.

“We have three op­tions for break­fast,” Mr Richards said.

“A ba­con and egg burger, a ba­con and egg wrap and a ba­con and egg toasted sand­wich and again it is all made fresh to order.”

Mr Richards said ev­ery­thing made at the café was never rushed.

“Ev­ery­thing is freshly made to order here, ev­ery­thing is 100 per cent to­tally fresh,” he said.

The Big Or­ange also has a range of burg­ers on the menu, and the guest book in­di­cates they are a hit with vis­i­tors.

These burg­ers in­clude a works burger, Hawai­ian burger, dou­ble cheese burger and a beef burger just to name a few.

While most of their busi­ness was from tourists, Mr Richards said they had a core group of reg­u­lar lo­cals and hoped to see that build.

“We have lots of reg­u­lar peo­ple who en­joy com­ing in for morn­ing tea like the Blue Care peo­ple,” Mr Richards said.

“Sun­days are big for us with a lot of the church groups also en­joy­ing our food for morn­ing tea.”

Mr Richards said other so­cial groups like the Gayn­dah Gard­ners also held their meet­ings in the café, which could seat up to 60 peo­ple. All this is avail­able ev­ery day at the Big Or­ange in Gayn­dah.
