HUNG out to dry, taken to the cleaners – the clichés roll off the tongue.
Well, why not. It’s a former dry cleaners that has been converted into the Laundry Café.
You may not be hung out to dry but it’s certain you will want to hang out at Busselton’s latest addition to the food and bar scene.
It won’t take you to the cleaners either, as food prices are designed to attract rather than deter people.
Chef Tim Whitty, who is the operations manager, has a track record in the region for his food.
He has designed a menu based around share-plate meals. The intention is for people to share a variety of plates, however the traditional entrée and mains are also available.
This is his first venture as an operator of a café or restaurant. His partners are Julie and Cliff Silke, who own the building.
Situated in Prince Street, the Laundry attracted a curious gathering at the official opening last Thursday, which saw Vasse MLA Troy Buswell and Mayor Ian Stubbs among the guests.
The Laundry Café will be open seven days a week from 10am until late. Up to midnight on every night except Sunday, which is 10pm.
The early start is to allow people to have a coffee.
