Gracetown's newest cafe aims to bring together separate eating areas with different themes to offer the ultimate dining experience, according to operator Anatol Fritsch.
Sunsets Cafe and Restaurant, located at the former Gracetown Cafe site next to the general store, will boast a sundeck of bean bags, a bed overlooking the bay for those who prefer to eat horizontally, a picnic area overlooking the bay with a swinging chair and an indoor children’s corner and formal dining space.
The business will open for late breakfasts and serve alternative lunch and dinner menus while catering to local surfers and passers-by.
“There will be pies, pasties and sausage rolls, which is always handy for the surfers, and we’ll have quality Yallingup coffee,” he said.
Mr Fritsch said there would be a deli-like element to the outlet and diners could expect innovative cakes and slices with recipes “the region has never seen before”.
As the business’s head chef, he said breakfast offerings would combine well-known winners with fresh salads, while lunches would feature his famous vegetable burgers and dinners would be a fusion of the best Margaret River local produce, including traditional schnitzels “so big they’ll bend over your plate”.
Affordability was a key goal of the cafe-restaurant, Mr Fritsch said.
“I’m aiming for most the meals to be under the $20 mark, because the price of food in this region is a big problem,” he said.
Mr Fritsch said he felt after running two restaurants – the former Green Room and another in Amsterdam – he had the know-how to make his latest venture successful.
Sunsets Cafe and Restaurant is scheduled to open for business from tomorrow.
