So here we are... day 10! What a ride and when it all opened the main overriding emotion Pete and I felt (apart from exhaustion) was pride. um, yep I know exhaustion isn't an emotion - but it is was the main thing that consumed us last week. We are blessed with fantastic staff and we are loving our customers. We love our space and are still working on heating ( we are making head way), gas (who knows what is happening there) and a few small things. We are sticking to our guns and are going to produce good food from good produce. No we won't serve 1 litre coffees, doughnuts, fried food, made to order sandwiches or sushi - we leave that to those who do it best. What we want to keep doing is surprising our customers with food, service, coffee and an environment that makes them feel good. We believe we can do that, we believe that is what people deserve and want. Why shouldn't every meal be a great meal?
Mister Close - he feels good, he looks great, he is tasting super and we just love him. And yes, we contacted our old school today to let him know.
Thank you to all our customers, friends and dear family - we made it. It is now time for us to get it right.
