Deli brings taste of city life

THEY started out with a dream.

That dream has not only become a reality, but has brought something special into the lives of Bray Park locals and everyone around the region.

The Show and Shine Cafe-Deli is a culinary delight.

Working owners Trisha and Mark Fendley started out with a garage in the little village that sits between rolling countryside and Murwillumbah.

They set out to create something special next to the garage.

They wanted a deli that had everything from great espresso coffee through to freshly baked gluten-free bread, home-baked pies and a huge variety of local and continental-style treats.

"We didn't want some tacky Besser brick structure," Mr Fendley said.

"We were aiming for the wow factor."

That's exactly what they got.

When you walk through the door it's the first word that comes in to your head.

"We really did our research," Mrs Fendley, who has an extensive background in the food industry, said.

Their research into delis and cafes in Melbourne and Sydney is reflected in the decor.

It's a deli haven from the signage out front through to the ice-cream machine that Mrs Fendley uses to create any flavour and colour of ice-cream you desire.

My Daily News put in its bid for a mandarin and chocolate ice-cream.

"That's totally do-able," Mrs Fendley laughed.

"We are certainly not ordinary," she said.

"We have worked hard to be special and it has paid off."

As if there wasn't enough to tantalise your taste buds, the couple is about to expand further with a range of cheeses and yoghurt on the agenda.

"We may have a huge range to tempt customers," Mr Fendley said.

"But we always listen to them and take their suggestions on board.

"And we always, where possible, use local produce."
