Rusty Windmill opening excites

Cutting the ribbon: The Rusty Windmill owner Shareena Boyd officially opens her new cafe in Leongatha last Thursday.

LEONGATHA’S newest cafe opened to a buzz of coffee lovers and lunch-goers last Thursday.

The Rusty Windmill, opened by Shareena Boyd, was overwhelmed by customers when doors first opened at 11am.

“The first 20 minutes were chaotic!” she laughed.

“But I think it went quite well. We got a fair few people through the door and no one sent any food back, so that’s always a good thing!”
With a spacious interior and large outdoor area, Shareena has furnished The Rusty Windmill with recycled tables, chairs and decorations, and received great feedback on the day.

“Lots of people loved the space and the different areas, as well as the fact they could bring their kids,” she said.

“I also had a lot of compliments about the decor, and the outside area was definitely a winner.”

The opening also included live music and a jumping castle and face painting for children, all organised by Events by Kate.

With the cafe closed from Friday through to yesterday, Shareena and her staff have been busy preparing for regular opening hours.

“We make everything from scratch in-house, so we’ve been madly prepping for the past few days,” she said.

The Rusty Windmill reopens today and will be open from 7am until 3pm on weekdays, and from 8am until 3pm on weekends.
