Sugarcane Cafe Bistro is a family run business that is now 10 years old and was founded by husband and wife, Peter and Emma McCleery.
Neither of us had a background in catering but we did have a clear view from the outset of what we wanted our business to represent. We travel quite a bit and on our travels we picked up little snippets of ideas and wrote them down. We intensified this approach locally and would spend many hours in our favourite and not so favourite places, watching how staff interacted with the customers, how the “opposition” did things and how we felt the customer would feel. We wanted to create a local, friendly store based on the European Cafe style.
