“Love Caloundra” Promotion

Yeah! The weather has been glorious in Caloundra this month and down here at Sandbar Café, we’re all hoping that it continues! It’s been a tough year for Caloundra restaurant’s (and all other local businesses)  and it’s been a relief to see some extended sunny & warmer weather.

It also made it  perfect timing for the launch of the August “Love Caloundra” promotion kindly sponsored by the Caloundra chamber of commerce, Hot91 FM & The Caloundra Journal. Each Friday throughout August the Journal is printing Caloundra Cash which can be used at participating outlets including Sandbar Cafe & Kiosk.
