For the past two years I have been growing and developing Scrumptious into the success it is today. Quietly in the background has been my rock, my darling husband Max, who's day job was Principle Reliability Specialist for Newcrest Mining. However, a significant company restructure meant the closure of their Brisbane office and hence Max was made redundant after 15 years. The upside is that we looked at this as a positive opportunity to spend more time together and Max has now joined the Scrumptious Team permanently. To begin his new role at the café Max travelled to Sydney and spent 2 days with our coffee roaster "Instaurator" to gain a full understanding the coffee bean journey and the science behind the product we deliver. Pictured above is Max (on left - the handsome one) & "Inny" our World Guru Coffee Roaster at his factory. So come along and meet the love of my love who is now my Barista in Training. I am so VERY EXCITED to be continuing the Scrumptious journey with Max by my side.
Do I hear you saying - "WHAT THE .. IS SHE ON ABOUT?".
GREAT EXCITEMENT AT SCRUMPTIOUS - we are No 1 on the Trip Advisor website out of all 37 Orange Cafes & Restaurants.
Very humbling when you consider some of these are "Hatted" restaurants. Every one of the reviews are genuine & unsolicited so we are extremely grateful to people who take the time to comment. We do try very hard to give you all a wonderful experience with great food, coffee and service - thanks for your acknowledgment.

One of my special customers shared this with me and I was sooooo touched I had to share it with you. When he is at Scrumptious and he receives a text asking were he is, he replies IAS and his phone types I'm at Scrumptious, or WAAS (we are at Scrumptious). This is because they are at Scrumptious that often his phone has developed a code for it. AIN'T THAT GREAT !!!! I love you guys thanks for being the bestest of customers and friends !!!
10-12th May was all about APPLES in Orange - thanks to the great work by the vivacious & enthusiastic Cathy Thompson who is the organizer of the Orange Apple Festival. Scrumptious has participated so happily last year (the inaugural) and this year because we strongly believe in our local producers. I would like to sincerely thank Ed & Julie from Eden Park Orchard for their most amazingly "red delicious" apples they provided for us to promote all things APPLES !!!!
This cute little fellow having a relaxed snooze is one of the many little puppies you might see at my café. The reason being is Stephen & Mary (world renowned Kelpie Breeders & Dog Trainers) come to the café for breakfast or lunch regularly as part of their "Puppy Training" program to teach puppies to become familiar with the big world eg cars, people, motorbikes and all the big strange things that go on.
I thought it was time I stopped talking about me... and introduced you to the amazing staff who contribute so incredibly to provide you a lovely café experience.
It is only fitting that I start with Gabriella (fondly known as Gai or Gab). The reason I start with Gab is because she has been with me from day one.
Actually I am truly blessed that Gab works with me. Not only is Gab a wonderful Cook that could beat any "Chef" hands down, she is loyal to me and our Scrumptious vision. This amazing lady can be busy dishing up Scrumptious meal orders while cooking cakes and slices - she truly is amazing. In this photo Gab is creating a scrumptious caramel meringue pie - mmmmm scrumptious. If you pop in on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday remember to yell out THANKS GABRIELLA !!!!
Come & See our new Grab 'N Go Gourmet Lunch Bags!!!
Designed for the busy worker in mind you can pop in choose from the fresh ready made gourmet wraps, baguettes or sandwiches, a sweet treat for afternoon tea and a coffee or juice. Grab your bag and off you go.
As our regulars know I'm always striving to make your Scrumptious Café experience even better - in keeping with this in mind I went out and bought these beautiful comfy tub chairs for you to sit and chat with a friend or while you enjoy your scrumptious coffee & catch up on the local news.
