On the menu - Le Sedi Café

Le Sedi CaféLe Sedi Café, 23 Wilson Road, Waihi Beach has proved a saviour to an old dilapidated building transforming it from its tired and worn state to a bright, bold and modern cafe.

A luscious combination of predominantly Resene Lusty (orange red) adorns the exterior accented by touches of Resene Chalky (subdued yellow oxide) on window frames, Equator (mustard yellow) on fascias and Valentino (inky violet) on window sills. Resene Indochine (rusted orange) features in the bar area to provide a natural break from the atmospheric Resene Orient (turquoise blue) used in the seated dining area.

Versatile Resene Lumbersider is responsible for the satin interior and exterior sheen. Capped with Resene Hi-Glo on the exterior for a high gloss roof finish, and complemented in the interior with Resene Lustacryl semi-gloss waterbased enamel on trim, joinery and wet areas, the paint system was designed for maximum durability and cleanability.

Boasting a café style menu and superb indoor/outdoor floor, Waihi Beach residents can indulge their tastebuds Le Sedi style.
