Cafe society brewing on Lakeside’s doorstep

09 February 2018 | by Halcyon

Home owners at Halcyon Lakeside are savouring a delicious slice of café culture with the opening of a fabulous alfresco eatery right on their doorstep.

‘The Local Bli Bli’ café and tapas bar is just metres from Lakeside’s second entry, so home owners can just stroll in for a freshly brewed cuppa, delicious lunch with friends, or dinner for two at sunset.

Perched on the edge of a picturesque lake, the café overlooks a state-of-the-art playground and is surrounded by walking trails, offering a vibrant outlook for patrons.

Steve and Carol Blackbourn have become regulars at The Local since it opened just before Christmas.
“We’re there at least once a week,” Steve said.

“It’s really good because we have all the facilities within the community but now we have something just outside where we can meet up with a couple of special friends.

“If we’re showing people around the community, we can just take them there afterwards for a coffee and something to eat.

“You can watch the kids playing and watch the ducks on the lake.”

The Local has also allowed the couple to meet more home owners from Halcyon Lakeside.

“We bump into people who don’t live in our street or aren’t in the same interest groups, so there’s an opportunity to get to know them better,” Steve said.

And it’s very handy if you just don’t feel like cooking.

“It’s reasonably priced, the food is very good quality and there are healthy options,” Carol said.

“They also do takeaways like pizza and sandwiches.”

Lakeside community manager Donna Osborne said home owners were loving the convenience of having an exceptional café so close to home.

The Local Bli Bli is at 125 Parklakes Drive, Parklakes 2, and is open every day, with dinner served on Friday and Saturday nights.

Friday evenings also feature tapas and live music.
