THERE is a new business in town at Killarney and it is one sure to impress.
The Gorgeous Coffee Lounge, on Willow St, boasts bright walls, aromatic coffee and a place for locals to catch up with friends.
Owner Sandy Wallace, of Shirl and Sandy's, said she was inspired to open the café when the neighbouring newsagent divided their shop into two, leaving a vacant space perfect for a coffee lounge.
"There is nowhere in Killarney like this and with the range of products we sell," Mrs Wallace said.
"Here there is no deep frying - it's all light meals, sandwiches, cakes and coffees.
"It's a different line of business so we're not stepping on anyone's toes."
The Gorgeous Coffee Lounge has an array of condiments for sale including products from The Bramble patch and Byron Bay Chocolate Company.
"I believe our staff and customers deserve the finer things in life," she said.
After a trip to Melbourne with friends, Mrs Wallace decided to deck out the café in trendy colours and furniture.
The Gorgeous Coffee Lounge, named after the Killarney Gorge, is open between Thursday and Monday from 7.30am-6.30pm.
"This is our trial month, so we'll just see what works," Mrs Wallace said.
She wanted to thank everyone involved in the construction of the café, and those who helped prepare it for opening on September 1.
