Daniel opened his new business at Village Albany Creek (Coles) shopping centre on March 29th the same day the government closed all restaurants and cafes to patrons. Despite this seemingly terrible blow, Daniel decided to open his doors and serve takeaway coffee and food to the good people of Albany Creek.

Today Daniel’s Cafe / restaurant is now back to full operation after covid restrictions eased. It is ironic to say the least, that after Albany Creek’s main shopping centre had been crying out for a new café / restaurant for so long, the opening of il baretto was put on hold because of Covid 19. Despite the set backs Daniel has been encouraged and humbled by the support of the community. “Albany Creek has an amazing community, I have already made friends with so many locals and everyone is so friendly and supportive it’s been fantastic” said Daniel.
