Seashells Coffee Bar will be serving up delicious takeaway brews plus plenty of sweet treats when it opens in Bargara from next week.
The new business is a dream come true for Letali Berrier who said plans to create her own shop had come about last year after her family moved to the region from the Sunshine Coast.
“We thought it was the best place to get a head start and begin new ventures,” she said.
“My whole family loves Bargara and we would often come for bike rides and walks along the waterfront and one day my Mum and I came across a tiny space and decided to take the risk and start a business.
“Almost a year later we have turned that space into my dream little coffee bar.”
Letali said she had worked in the hospitality industry since she was 14 and was now excited to bring her own flair to her first-ever business at Seashells Coffee Bar.
“It’s always been a dream of mine to open a coffee shop,” she said.
“Baking and making coffee is a big passion of mine and I’ve always wanted to share this with everyone, but in my own space.”
Seashells Coffee Bar will open its doors to the community on Tuesday, 1 February with plenty of food and beverage options to choose from.
“I’m using a delicious blend from Seven Miles Coffee Roasters, it’s called Belaroma – Octavia,” Letali said.
“There will be all other hot and cold drinks available as well such as, hot chocolates, chai lattes, tea, milo, baby chinos for the kids, puppachinos for your pooches, iced lattes and more.
“I will be offering a range of sweet treats including, cakes, slices, cookies which will mostly be baked on site, plus pastries – gluten free and vegan options.
“Seashells Coffee Bar will be takeaway only at the moment, but I will have a few tables and chairs for customers to sit at outside.”
Letali said her doors would be open seven days a week and she was excited to welcome locals and visitors alike to her coffee bar while enjoying everything else that Bargara had to offer.
“I absolutely love Bargara and the community and was glad I was given the opportunity to bring something new to the area,” she said.
“I’m looking forward to being a new face in the community and to bring something a little different and new to town.
“Plus, you can never have too much coffee around!”
Seashells Coffee Bar is situated at Shop 1/5 Whalley Street, Bargara and will be open Monday to Friday 6 am to 1 pm and Saturday and Sunday 7 am to 1 pm from 1 February.
