Ut Si Café

Not often does this happen!

Ut Si Café closed down & renowned Chef Sean Keating opened up in the quaint little church at Perth, Tasmania.  Named Phoenix & the Wolf, after his two small children, it quickly became a firm favourite amongst locals & tourists alike.  But, after just over 12 months in business, the shock announcement came that Phoenix & the Wolf had closed down suddenly due to personal circumstances.

Original owner of the Ut Si Café, Colette Barnes, decided to re-open after 3 months of solid hard work refurbishing, painting and resurrecting the café and garden.

The popular Café re-opened on Thursday 10 March 2016.” ”>
