It seems visitors are already enjoying their wares, one person posted on their Facebook page saying: "Enjoyed my cap'n crunch and fruit loops in candy floss milk. Can't wait to try the waffles and cakes next time. "

The owners are also hoping their newer ideas like their 'freakshakes' - huge milkshakes that are already popular in Australia - and their 'doughnut ice cream' will also be a huge hit with customers.
