New cafe has a re­laxed vibe

Narrogin Observer - - News - Michael Traill

A new busi­ness has opened it’s doors in Nar­ro­gin — the Lazy Daze Cafe be­gan trad­ing last Wed­nes­day on Fed­eral Street.

Own­ers Dave and Rachel Gon­calves have a strong lo­cally pro­duced and nat­u­ral prod­uct fo­cus for their busi­ness.

“Some­thing ca­sual and nice and re­laxed,” is the vi­sion for Lazy Daze Cafe, ac­cord­ing to Mr Gon­calves.

“Most places nowa­days try to cram a lot of things into an area, we fig­ured we’d keep it nice and tidy and open.”

“Any­one can buy-in stuff and say it’s a good prod­uct but un­less you can make it your­self, you can’t tell. (We want to bring) a coun­try feel to it,” Mrs Gon­calves said.

“Headed by two rough-look­ing peo­ple,” Mr Gon­calves added.

Home-made mois­turis­ers, soaps and lip balms will be avail­able for pur­chase along­side the cafe’s usual break­fast, lunch and din­ner ser­vice.

“We found that they worked well in our last restau­rant” Mrs Gon­calves said.

The cou­ple de­cided to set up shop as a “spur of the mo­ment thought”.

They used to own a restau­rant in Dwellingup, be­fore moving with their three girls to Nar­ro­gin.

Own­ing a farm and restau­rant while rais­ing their three chil­dren be­came too much for cou­ple, prompt­ing their move to town.
