�I had a glass window where you could look in and see the pastry cooks work so there was a long queue,� Ms Edmiston said of the opening day.
�Since then it hasn�t stopped.�
More than 40 years later, Perth is home to 16 Miss Maud pastry houses, with the Westfield Innaloo location recently undergoing a refurbishment.
Miss Maud�s Innaloo opened in 1992 and Ms Edmiston said the site was in need of an update.
�We refurbish all our cafes as time goes on because things change, the place was getting worn down and you need to stay up with it,� she said.
Ms Edmiston said being open to change while staying true to the brand was key to the longevity of her business.
�The important thing is to refresh and renew but not change the overall feeling, people love the atmosphere and the classic Swedish look,� she said.
Innaloo Miss Maud manager Julie Gould said she had received good feedback from regulars regarding the refurbishment.
�They�ve said it�s very welcoming, warm and more inviting now,� Ms Gould said.
�It�s a really happy atmosphere to work in, but my favourite part is the customers.�
In May, Westfield announced a $450 million redevelopment of Innaloo shopping centre.
