A HEATHRIDGE couple have been giving a Quinns Rocks café a complete makeover.
Aaron Pegler and Ilona Malinowska bought the former Salty’s Fish and Chips shop earlier this year, and have been renovating it in recent weeks.
“We approached the previous owner and asked whether he wanted to sell it,” she said.
“It was a dream come true for a young, small family.
“We just want the place to have that feeling it’s for the community.”
Mrs Malinowksa said the area had plenty of history, some of which they would incorporate into its fresh look, including an old ship’s bell.
They have also changed the name of the cafe, overlooking Quinns Beach and Fred Stubbs Park, to Blue Vue Cafe.
They reopened the cafe to customers last week, with initial operating hours set from 7am to 4pm most days, and to 8pm on Fridays and Saturdays. It is closed on Tuesdays.
