TRIGG cafe Yelo is continuing to operate despite luxury apartments planned for the site.

Momentum Wealth recently bought the West Coast Highway lot that houses the popular cafe.

The site was put on the market back in August.

Yelo has leased the site until April 2020 and owner Michael Pond confirmed it would be business as usual until then.

Momentum Wealth development manager Phil Anderson said it planned to build a “limited number of luxury apartments” above a ground floor commercial tenancy, and would welcome Yelo to remain.

“We are in the very early stages of planning and working closely with the City of Stirling and other stakeholders, but would love to see Yelo return to this amazing prime coastal location,” he said.

“As the initial plans for our proposed development take shape, we will be consulting with the local community and with Mr Pond.”
