This week I grabbed a few quick moments with Mel, the busy owner of Pegs Cafe in Whitebridge. She has created something pretty unique in our Village and on top of all-round wonderful food and coffee, she is now offering very popular themed nights, which we are loving. I remember a baked dinner theme night a little while ago, and wow that was awesome! We actually went three times that month with different friends and family because we couldn’t get enough of it.
What inspired you to start your own cafe
I’ve always loved hospitality, it’s something I’ve always done. We’ve been here, coming up to 5 years in December. The whole community has supported me, I can’t thank the Whitebridge people enough for their support.
I love the Whitebridge community, my family lives around here and it was definitely the place to start something special.
Where did the name Pegs originate
Pegs is named after my three children. I have Pollyanna she’s 5, and I have twin boys Eddison and George and they’re 7. The ‘S’ is the part that brings everything together, my amazing staff.
Tell me about your awesome theme nights
Mel: Theme nights are going really well. Once a month we have a theme with a set price per head and the community’s loving it. We offer them on a Thursday and Friday night.
Ally: We love having you guys so close. The other week we celebrated Steve’s birthday on Friday night and it was amazing! The food, the atmosphere but above all the service. You’ve got some valuable people working with you that create something really special.
How did Women of Whitebridge begin
I started it as a way to bring women together and give them an excuse to go out once a month to catch up. We’re finding ourselves so busy now, so I wanted to provide an opportunity for our amazing female community to set aside some quality time with each other. I actually found it hard to catch up even with my sisters, so it’s a good excuse to meet for dinner once a month.
Next WOW night is on October 6th 2017
