Isobel Sippel Studio
This is a great place to visit if you are looking for a creative space to express your artistic flare. Isobel (the founder) found that the need to create is a force behind a love for nature, art and textiles. The space is perfect for mothers and daughters to spend some time together, as Isobel’s daughter Gabrielle Kruger is the artistic and digital designer. The studio is located in Salt Circle Arcade and is open on weekdays.
The newly opened eatery is located in the centre of the shopping centre, serving fabulous burgers, toasted sandwiches, fresh croissants and, of course, coffee! This is a great spot to have lunch with a couple friends, or a quick bite to eat during your lunch hour.
