Matriarch Aynsley Anderson had a long-held dream of moving her family from New Zealand after ‘falling in love’ with WA while holidaying here.

‘We went home to save up to come and live here ” and then there were the earthquakes and that pushed us to make the move,’ she said.

An idea hatched in Christchurch came to fruition recently when interior designer Aynsley, chef-barista daughter Lisa and son Jason opened The Buttery Cafe and Homewares in Joondalup.

Situated in the new Shenton House, alongside Grace Anglican Church and medical facilities, the cafe has a weekday breakfast, lunch and snack menu and provides a catering service.

‘Everything is homemade,’ Lisa, who regularly bakes New Zealand favourites such as caramel slice and yo-yo biscuits, said.

‘I make the hash browns, which are served grilled, the hollandaise sauce is made from scratch and all cakes and cookies are baked on-site.’

Owner Aynsley drew on her interior design skills to stock a separate area with vintage gifts and homeware ” ‘bits and pieces that are a bit different’.

‘We have gone to a lot of trouble to make sure the cafe is just that step above because I believe Joondalup deserves it,’ Aynsley said.
