Coffee lovers rejoice over new cafe in Cabarita

THERE'S nothing better than a coffee in the morning and nobody knows coffee quite like Jamie and Carol Thompson.

The couple have had more than 25 years experience operating cafes and have now returned to Cabarita to keep their passion for hospitality alive.

We chat to Carol about Caba Social:

What inspired you to open your own business?

We have always been in the hospitality industry, it is our passion and we love to please our customers with good fresh food and coffee.

Why did you settle on Cabarita?

We started a cafe in Cabarita in the exact same shop over 25 years ago when the building was brand new, we managed it back then but treated it like our own.

We've only been operating 16 days and believe we have a relaxed atmosphere where people can wind down and enjoy themselves.
