THERE’S noth­ing bet­ter than a cof­fee in the morn­ing and no­body knows cof­fee quite like Jamie and Carol Thomp­son.

The cou­ple have had more than 25 years ex­pe­ri­ence op­er­at­ing cafes and have now re­turned to Cabarita to keep their pas­sion for hos­pi­tal­ity alive.

We chat to Carol about Caba So­cial: What in­spired you to open your own busi­ness?

We have al­ways been in the hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try, it is our pas­sion and we love to please our cus­tomers with good fresh food and cof­fee. Why did you set­tle on Cabarita?

We started a cafe in Cabarita in the ex­act same shop over 25 years ago when the build­ing was brand new, we man­aged it back then but treated it like our own.

We’ve only been op­er­at­ing 16 days and believe we have a re­laxed at­mos­phere where peo­ple can wind down and en­joy them­selves. What’s been your ex­pe­ri­ence in op­er­at­ing cafes?

We get to meet some great peo­ple and love the com­mu­ni­ca­tion with them.

What can cus­tomers ex­pect to find on your menu? We of­fer fresh home-made savouries, frit­tatas, salmon pat­ties, beef lasagne, gourmet sal­ads and a large menu, in­clud­ing all day break­fasts, home-made ham­burg­ers plus more.

What do you most en­joy about op­er­at­ing your own busi­ness?

We love the sat­is­fac­tion of see­ing peo­ple, re­laxed and en­joy­ing good cof­fee and fine food. What are your fu­ture plans for the busi­ness?

To keep im­prov­ing and have a very suc­cess­ful busi­ness.
