Jason Smith never believed he would be running a small business in the heart of Mooroopna.
However after a year and a half of owning his own café, he wouldn’t change the experience.
Having lived in both Australia and overseas, Jason has experienced the best of both country and city living.
Almost three years ago Jason was working on a local dairy farm, doing 110 hour weeks which took a significant toll on his body.
“It was a hard job, I physically had to stop,” Jason said.
“The body was getting sore.”
After needing a change, Jason brought 3629 Café in Mooroopna in May last year.
Jason’s agricultural background influenced the cafes name change to Twobo, meaning two bovines.
“I started off with two cows twelve years ago, and I ended up running 2000 dairy farms.”
With a new name came a new layout for the café, which Jason wanted to be “really relaxed” whilst encompassing a “New York feel”.
Adorning the cafe walls are a variety of local artwork from lesser known artists.
“I try to help out local artists, the least I can do is give them a hand.”
Twobo Café specialises in gluten free dishes, which Jason attributes to the success of their catering business.
The café is also well known for their Twobo burger and chicken parmigiana, which was voted one of the best in Australia by Parmi Patrol.
Jason loves meeting locals from the community and encourages everyone to pop in and try his gluten free cakes.
Jason and his team prepare quality dishes seven days a week, from 7am to 3pm Monday to Friday, 8am to 3pm Saturday and 9am to 3pm on Sunday.
Twobo Café is located at 114 McLennan St, Mooroopna.
