I want to congratulate the team at Valentinas in Marrickville who were recently acknowledged by the Sydney Morning Herald as being in the Top 20 cafes across Sydney. Those of us who are lucky enough to call the Inner West home know all too well how great so many of our local cafes are; our home away from home to catch up with friends, get some work done or just enjoy a quiet coffee and chance to watch the world go by. Valentinas is a firm favourite for locals who join the crowd waiting for a table on weekends to enjoy the menu inspired by the nostalgic charm of classis American diners. Opening just six weeks before Sydney went into its second Covid lockdown the team have shown great resilience and ingenuity to build their successful business. Congratulations to owners Ms Elise Honeybrook and Mr Scott Clark and all the team at Valentinas for helping to make the Inner West such a vibrant and great place to live.
