Rebecca Martin, local resident and owner of the new Eagle Nest Café has over 20 years experience in the service sector as a former flight attendant. Rebecca revelled in the interaction with patrons and meeting new people in her former career and is delighted to continue at her Café and nothing is too much trouble for her! What started as a working office for Joy Jewellery two years ago has adapted to the ever changing retail market and diversified into Eagle Nest Café.
Opening at 7am week days, the first customers are commuters and tradies. Throughout the day everyone from professionals, mothers, students, local business owners and visitors from other suburbs frequent and it is quickly becoming a regular for many. Soak up the eclectic feel and relaxed ambience of cosy inside tables or take advantage of morning sun and afternoon shade outside.
The wholesome food has a homemade feel with Rebecca offering a tempting selection of sandwiches, quiches, tarts, muffins and slices. Indeed it’s a family affair; you’ll often see Rebecca’s mum (who’s cakes are to die for), husband and son all lending a hand. New on offer are refreshing Schweppes mineral waters and juices and on Saturdays an exciting selection of freshly baked goods and pastries on rotation. Due to customer demand Eagle Nest Café is installing additional seating including a bar bench.
Rebecca’s overwhelmed with encouragement and support from locals and describes her best Eaglemont moment as the 2012 Spring Festival “a beautiful sunny day and full of children and adults, Eaglemont Village was bustling and a happy place to be”. In the future she would like to see Eaglemont Village full of shops and become a very busy and successful shopping strip.
Rebecca recently sourced chic on trend scarves, bags, shoes and jewellery for sale, so drop in soon for a quick and delicious Monte coffee made from pure fair-trade arabica beans, catch up on the daily newspapers or browse through the many gifts on offer.
Open Mon – Fri 7am-4pm and Sat 8am-1pm
