@cafeatlewers much loved Sips & Sounds program is back and starts this week! Head to the Cafe on Friday evenings from 5pm until sundown for delicious tapas, local musicians and a refreshing range of beverages.
The perfect way to end the week 👌  No bookings required. Walk-ins only.  (Note: Christmas and New Year's Day fall on Fridays so the Cafe will be closed on those days, and Sips & Sounds won't run. Season runs from 6 Nov - 29 Jan)  #sipsandsounds #cafeatlewers #prgtlb #penrith #emuplains #summer
