Unveiling the tasty ‘Wasp and Sprout’

What you need to know:

  • What about Sprout? That, it seems, is all about growth. And that, certainly, is a very apt word for what has been happening to this little café on Loresho Ridge.
  • There is something hippy about it, with the colourful patchwork fabric Angela does for her easy chairs and cushions, or the quirky wooden stands for her lampshades. Also, there are displays of craft work done by the artisans she supports — chirpy clothes for children, silvery jewelry for the mums, and cool cotton ties for the dads.

There’s a splendid new café in Loresho. There’s not much in Loresho, apart from rows of residences. Am I right? And the small shopping precinct along Loresho Ridge is a bit shabby, isn’t it? But tucked behind the shops is a gem of a place — the small but burgeoning Wasp and Sprout.
