"Having a café has been a dream of mine and I've wanted to do it since I was little. When I came here, it was home. I just fell in love with it. The church, the grounds, the gardens, the whole feel of it, the beautiful Kinross manse. It's a hidden little treasure", Raz says. "I feel like I'm 18 again, I've got all this energy. I'm fulfilling my dream. Even when the doors are shut I'm just happy to be here. I've got this burst of energy and I'm blessed because I've got this beautiful family around me to support me."
And the café? "It's just like home. Beautiful coffee - amazing coffee, homemade sweets, lunch specials. The whole family is helping out. If the kids are here after school, they'll serve! It's homey and relaxing, fresh flowers, beautiful teas, and we're going to become famous for coffee! My gorgeous hubby James gets up early and bakes scones for me every Monday and we serve them with French jam and cream. We use olive oil from our parents' village in Kalamata. I'm fussy, if it's not 100% I.m not putting it out there."
Barista Carlo is another friendly face at the Café. "God sent me Carlo - gorgeous bello!", laughs Raz.
"We are working towards opening on the weekends, beginning with Sundays in the not too distant future", adds James, "and we do catering by request. Call us to discuss your needs – if it can be done it will be done!"
"Please come and introduce yourselves and experience our little treasure."
