IT TAKES energy and drive to open a new business and I’m personally always grateful to those who make that effort. It means I have more services available to me and it’s good to see a new café open up in the Shepparton Plaza across from the Shepparton Showgrounds.

The Coffee Mantra business owner, Arun Gupta has come up with the perfect combination of food and atmosphere to delight customers. Arun said, “I have taken all of the things that I love when I go into a café, the aspects that make me feel comfortable, and I’ve put them all into place here at The Coffee Mantra.

“I want my customers to have short waiting times, excellent, friendly service and good quality food at reasonable prices along with an atmosphere that makes them feel really relaxed. We have free Wi-Fi, a charging station for iPhones and computers and are in the process of developing a book library including magazines, cross words and newspapers for patrons to enjoy. We also cater to children providing a colouring station.

“I’ve got such a great team of staff who are really eager to get to know our customers and most importantly our food is prepared freshly to your needs with the best and freshest ingredients. The other thing that we have that makes us a little different to other cafes is a $10 Indian food buffet.
