Elements Eatery awarded as successful tenderer for Yawa Aquatic Centre Cafe.
The Mornington Peninsula Shire and Belgravia Leisure are pleased to announce the appointment of a successful tenderer for Yawa Aquatic Centre Café as local business owner; Mrs Tracey Fleming.
Tracey is an experienced hospitality professional and talented foodie best known for her success as founder of Blue Mini Café Emporium, Boneo Road Coffee Roasters and Blue Mini Events.
“As a passionate Peninsula local working in hospitality and tourism for the past 30 years, it seems like a natural progression to be creating a destination café at Yawa Aquatic Centre” says Tracey.
The new cafe concept; named as Elements Eatery, offers a unique hospitality vision:
‘to deliver a locally inspired food experience that promotes healthy food choices, celebrates local produce and embraces an environmentally conscious approach to in-centre dining.’
The state-of-the art facility at Yawa offers Aquatic Centre patrons two distinct hospitality experiences: casual dining at Elements Eatery or pool-side service at Elements Grab and Go Kiosk.
With an indoor capacity of up to 100 seats, Elements Eatery will offer an additional 40-seat outdoor dining space for walk-in customers. The professional hospitality team will provide a friendly and snappy service for groups and individuals to enjoy a morning coffee, relaxed lunch or a take-home meal after an evening gym or swim session.
Element’s Eatery Grab & Go Kiosk will offer families, casual swim, school children and grandparents a welcoming and inclusive space to enjoy a healthy menu alongside the indoor pool areas.
“The Inspiration for Elements draws on our vibrant coastal community and landscape; a region bordered on three sides by pristine coastal waters with a rich agricultural heart” says Tracey.
Tracey also believes there has never been a more important time to Support and Buy Local on the Mornington Peninsula. The Elements team have designed a menu using local suppliers, contractors and locally-grown produce.
With a menu that considers the Mornington Peninsula’s Healthy Choices Guidelines, the team at Elements have already expressed their intention to enter the region’s Best Bites program.
In line with Yawa’s strong commitment to environmental sustainability, Elements will reduce, re-use, re-cycle and choose eco-sensitive packaging – that includes a ban on single-use plastics in the Grab and Go Menu.
Drawing on her many years of experience working in hospitality, tourism and events, Tracey’s team looks to have assembled all the right ingredients to deliver an exciting new destination-style café for the Mornington Peninsula:
“Elements will be respected not only for food quality but by an exceptional hospitality experience, driven by a customer-centric approach and affordable healthy eating for all” says Tracey.
