#46155 Wild Cherry Cafe

Posted by Jayesse on 23 February 2017 - 09:11 AM

Green Guy & others,
My father bought the Wild Cherry in 1967, until its closure. I worked with him from 1978, cooking copious amounts of Roast Lamb, apple pies, steamed puddings, lambs fry & bacon etc. The effeminate gentleman you referred to was Donnie McLoud. He was an old school chum of my mother. The had gone to school in Essendon. The reason the cafe closed was due to the T & G. They owned the building & for the last 3 years we were there, they refused to renew our lease passed 1 year, so we had to close.
The Cherry had an interesting history. It was, allegedly, started by two sisters from the Dandenong Ranges. The second owners were my late God Mother & her husband, Ernie & Audrey Ruddick.
Third owner was Sydney Talbot. My father James Webster & his business partner Bill Ruddick (son of Ernie & stepson of Audrey) purchased it & subsequently, dad bought Bill"s share.
My mother was co-owner of Churinga Restaurant in the Dandenong Ranges, opposite the William Ricketts Sanctuary. She was also the President of the Save the Regent Theatre group, who were ultimately victorious.
I can't tell you how chuffed I am to find that people still remember the Cherry. I oftened thought I should write a book on the place. We had some very interesting & 'original' regular customers. Many were single people who had lost loved ones in WWII, worked in the city & generally lived alone.
My Father died about 6 years ago, & I still miss him every day.

#28799 What Are Some Of Your Favorite Australian Films?

Posted by johnbateman on 11 August 2010 - 10:20 AM

Beautiful Kate and Beautiful were both fantastic recent aussie films.

I saw "Boy" the the film festival on the weekend, it's not aussie but worth a look, highest grossing NZ film ever, worth it just to see the after credits scene, it's wonderfully entertaining.

Maybe we should start a "best kiwi film" thread!

Oh I'd put LOTR on top!
