Who is Deklyn Lomax? I’m 19 and bought Kayshe espresso when I was 18. It had always been a dream of mine to open a cafe. I was going to open one in Wollongong and was two weeks away from moving there, but the opportunity for this cafe came up. I thought it was a sign and I had to stay in town. Now I can’t imagine not doing it. It’s probably the best decision I ever made.

Best recent dining experience: The food from Bali when I was on holiday there. They have the best customer service.

A must-try on our menu: Pulled beef toastie. They are quite good. And open sushi bowl. People underrate them, they are so simple but delicious.

My biggest culinary influence: I’m going to say Jamie Oliver.

Favourite cookbook: I don’t even have one.

Who I admire on the Temora food and wine scene: My auntie Heather Greenham. She runs the Shamrock Hotel. She’s amazing.
