It’s one thing to open a café in a ‘tried and true’ area, another completely to step outside the box and bring new life to a relatively untouched suburb. Hospitality veteran Kate Bennett has never trodden the well-worn pathway. From pubs and bars to cafés, Kate and her husband Graham have taken on challenges and...
