WATCH: News Café launches in Eastgate Mall

Beyond its strategic location and tantalising menu, News Café Eastgate Mall offers a unique blend of culinary delights and vibrant ambiance.

Having initially opened its doors late last November, News Café Eastgate marked its official launch last week Thursday.

Esteemed guests and the media were invited to celebrate the successful start of the establishment.

In an exclusive interview with The Citizen, News Café’s Operations Executive, Ryan Pellatt, discussed the strategic decision behind choosing the Eastgate location.

“The location was chosen primarily based on the surrounding area,” explained Ryan. “We don’t have any presence here. So, for us, it was an area where we knew there was a lot of potential for our store.

“We know that we have a lot of our customer base residing in the area. And then from there, it was about identifying the right location within the area.”
