Saturday 4th July.
Two of Vio and Ayesha Nedianu's children. Vio, a native of Timisoara in Romania, came to Bingara when he saw the search was on for someone to take over the Roxy, saw what had been done to the cafe, and fell in love with the concept all over again. Ayesha was originally from Jordan.
Vio and Ayesha and five of their eight children - Amira, Zacharia, Ramona, Latifa and Hercules - have left Brisbane and their family Italian ristorante behind to make a new home in the town known as the ‘Gem of the New England’.
It was a momentous occasion - the first time in 46 years that the cafe had been re-opened as a Greek-Australian style cafe.
