    Alfami Café

    This year marks our 20th year in business, and never have I been more grateful to be involved in such an amazing community. The last few months have been an emotional struggle for most but the kindness and generosity of all my loyal followers has enabled me to keep my doors open throughout this pandemic. Thank you Seddon for all your love and support. It’s not quite ‘business as usual’, but we are slowly getting there. I definitely feel blessed and one of the lucky ones. Stay safe and well, Chanelle.
