This morning Paul and I had breakfast at the new Art Gallery Cafe in Wyong. We were so impressed with the amount of loving thought and detail Nadia had put into the place to make it a unique and comfortable dining experience. Every part of the decor is an artwork, so diners can experience both a visual and culinary feast. And the food is great! Paul was so eager to eat his ‘vegetarian breakfast’ he complained about having to wait while I took a picture of it 🙂 At the moment the gallery is open for breakfast and lunch from Monday to Saturday, and Nadia hopes to extend those times in the future if the cafe proves as popular as it deserves to. There are also future plans to offer live entertainment, with a raised performance area set aside for the purpose, and behind the cafe is Nadia’s workshop where she plans to hold classes and artists’ workshops.
There’ll be a monthly changeover with new artists exhibiting their work. This morning I had the good fortune to meet Jenny Rockwell who will be exhibiting at the gallery soon. Here is an example of Jenny’s work:
Here’s what Nadia has to say about the venture:
The new Café Gallery in Wyong is officially open. Nadia’s Café Gallery is a new concept for Wyong, Allowing a variety of different Artists to display and sell their art with a change over every 3 weeks. The café is open for trade, breakfast and lunch from 6.30am to 4pm Monday to Saturday at this stage, with views to extend trading hours upon demand. The Chef, Mitch Taylor is an experienced chef who has worked in other prominent restaurants and cafes. Menu pricing will be very affordable, so you can enjoy a meal without it costing a fortune. We will also have some fantastic black board specials that will be changing to trial different menu items. Our aim is to offer a great atmosphere, with friendly service and great affordable food, coffee and beverages
