Coffee lovers will soon be in­troduced to another thrilling spot for enjoying a cup of cof­fee or tea complete with pleasant garden scenery.

This follows the groundbreaking ceremony for Lautoka’s Botanical Garden Café by the Minister for Lo­cal Government, Premila Kumar, yesterday.

The café, located at the Botanical Garden, is the Lautoka City Coun­cil’s second project following the COVID-19 pandemic.

The first project the council en­gaged in was the Namoli Green Night Food Market in February.

Ms Kumar said the council’s in­vestment in the coffee shop came with the intention to enhance the experience at the iconic botanical garden.

 

The Project

She said the project was discussed and decided by the former special administrators.

Ms Kumar also ensured that no trees would be removed for the de­velopment.

“Outdoor seating provisions will not disturb any existing natural environmental features,” said Ms Kumar.

“The design of this coffee shop takes into consideration the safety, security and special needs of all Fijians.

“The coffee shop design has in­corporated salient and sustainable features for example robust design using locally available material, the greenhouse concept looks to blend in with the existing environment of the botanical garden.

“Public convenience will also in­clude people with special needs.”
