#SnapPerth: Osborne Park cafe Sondrea Espresso offering comfort as well as a cuppa

SINCE establishing Sondrea Espresso a year ago, the Osborne Park cafe has become a second home for owner Nick Gianotti.

He and his partner Prue Earl started the cafe last September and described it as “a bit of a chill out place”.

“I think people really feel comfortable,” he said.

“Everyone is so friendly and likes to chat about a whole range of things.”

Spending around 65 hours a week at the cafe means Mr Gianotti treats it as his second home.

“People feel it does have a homely aspect; we want everyone to enjoy the cafe, because we do, we really do,” he said.

He and Ms Earl recently welcomed their first child, son Noah who is now five months old.

He is a regular visitor to the cafe and Mr Gianotti joked he would eventually provide “an extra pair of hands”.

“He loves it and all the regulars love him,” he said.

“(Working and parenting) is challenging at times but it’s rewarding on both fronts.”

They moved in with family in Mosman Park for support with Noah but Mr Gianotti grew up in the area and hoped to move back nearby soon.

“I love the diversity of it,” he said.
