BoW Project - Cafe and Eatery has opened at the North Orange Shopping Centre.
Cafe owner Ammar Sharif held a soft opening last week and has just released the full menu, which he said will include plenty of local ingredients.
"All products are locally produced, all bakery cakes and pies, even the coffee," Mr Sharif said.
He said the coffee is from Fish River Roasters based in Bathurst.
Although this is his first business in Orange he also has Burgers on William in Bathurst. "That's what BoW stands for," he said.
Mr Sharif said the cafe, at the entrance to the centre will sell coffee, breakfast items and burgers and he's looking to introduce cultural takeaway dishes such as biryani, and momos, which are Nepalese dumplings.
He said he started looking around Orange for the site of a new business when he saw the shop at the North Orange Shopping Centre which, was already set up with a kitchen.
He said after speaking to people about what they wanted, good coffee was a major high on the list of demands for the North Orange location.
"We thought, it's a good opportunity and we'll give it a go," Mr Sharif said.
