Week beginning April 4th - Cafe Society Awards

Prior to opening, as a part of the business plan and goals, we set certain targets and ideals. Some of thse we have achieved, others not quite, but last week at an awards ceremony I was personally recognised by the industry through the Cafe Society with the Cafe Society Award, as recognition for contributiuon to the industry, as an inpiration to all others. We were also highly commended in the best Independent cafe awards as well. This is truly amazing. I do not profess to be incredible, or the best, I am just doing what I know and trying to do it the best I can. But I cannot do it all on my own.

In 18 months we have achieved a lot and I have a lot of people to thank for all their hard work and effort, from Tony our designer, Dominic the website, Kess the movie, all our wonderful suppliers and of course the backbone, the staff, especially Jared and Catherine who have been with us from the start. Some of you may not also know of the silent partner in the business, a very good friend who backed us at the beginning with financial support, Hayden, and also all the friends who have helped us along the way as well. Then of course, the people I am doing it all for, my wife and daughter. Respect to all and thank you.

Details on the award can be found here

There is a long way to go, not just for Kaffeine, but for the industry as a whole. Exciting times indeed. I hope we all can live up to and further exceed the expectations that thankfully are being put upon us.
