In good news for visitors to Lake Leschenaultia, Shire of Mundaring has identified a potential lessee to reopen the lakeside café/kiosk in Chidlow.

It has given public notice to lease the café to The Flackyard Pty Ltd for three years and has called for feedback from residents and stakeholders by 4.30pm on Tuesday 4 June 2024.

The present café/kiosk, Reflections, has been a feature of Lake Leschenaultia since its construction in 1961, offering meals and afternoon teas, plus takeaway food from a kiosk counter.

In December 2023, Shire called for Expressions of Interest for the lease, hoping to attract respondents from experienced catering operators.

At its May 2024 Council meeting, Shire selected The Flackyard as the potential lessee, noting its background in offering special dining experiences from its restaurant of the same name in the Pinnacle, Queensland, and its chef who formerly worked at the Wildflower and Fervor in WA.
