New owners: Skylawn and Pipa Faaoso at the Merrigum Cafe.


Originally from New Zealand, where they were actively involved in community markets, the couple and their family settled in Merrigum in December 2013, keen to start a new phase in their lives.

The cafe, which is located in Waverley Ave, had been on the market for some time before Pipa and Skylawn decided to purchase the business and give it a new lease of life.

Since taking over, they have spent every spare minute painting, and where possible, upgrading the interior of the shop, giving it a fresh appeal.

As this was their first time running a cafe, Pipa said they were keen to make a good impression.

So far they seem to be going the right way about it, with people impressed with the changes and the service provided.

The cafe has a wide range of takeaway meals, groceries, ice-creams, milk, bread, sweets and other everyday items. It has an ATM with EFTPOS also available.

The owners plan on upgrading meals and other facets of the business in the near future.

Pipa and Skylawn said last week they had settled down well in Merrigum, and were looking forward to welcoming new and old customers to the cafe, which now has extended opening hours seven days a week.
