Race to the finish line

Its all hands on the wallpaper as we hurtle towards opening THIS FRIDAY!



The enormity and excitement of what I am about to embark on really hit me tonight as I locked the door after an exhausting day of cleaning, prepping, crying, screaming and finally smiling as the "building site" began to look like a cafe.

Thank you to all the kind souls who have helped me and my lovely neighbours who have dropped by to wish me luck.

Hi Shelagh

What exciting news! I rode past the cafe on saturday and it was looking fabulous already. What are your trading hours going to be. Would love to pop by and sample some of your produce - especially a good coffee!

GOOD LUCK - the Rhode Island cousins are sending lots of love and luck and wishing you were opening Lantana in the USA

Thanks Dish, You never know, if this doesn't kill me (or bankrupt me) NY might be next.
