A NEW cafe under construction at Deep Water Point Reserve in Mt Pleasant could be serving its first customers by the end of March.

The Dome Caf will replace the former Deep Water Point Caf, which shut up shop in July 2016 after more than six years of operation.

The new caf was due to be open by Christmas, 2017.

With that having come and gone, a spokesman for the City of Melville said the team behind the new development pushed its opening back to accommodate power upgrades and ensure it could tick all the boxes with the council.

“I think once they go through all that they’ll go through a training process with their staff,” he said.

“They’re planning to open about February or March.”

The new cafe is part of a wider upgrade of the popular precinct, which includes a new jetty, foreshore revetment, an improved boat ramp and upgrades to the change rooms.

“We scoped that (area) out to see what we needed,” Melville Mayor Russell Aubrey said.

“(Dome is) an intrinsic part of the development of our foreshore and (will) encourage more people to use it and provide a better facility when they do.”

Dome was sought for comment.
