SEYCHELLES’ MINISTER FOR TOURISM VISITS THE EDEN ISLAND BASED ‘CHATTERBOX‘
(Posted 05th July 2016)
Seychelles’ Minister for Tourism & Culture, Alain St. Ange and senior tourism consultant, Glynn Burridge paid a visit to the new Chatterbox coffee shop in the Eden Island Mall owned by Seychelloise Marsha Parcou and her partner Kirshlee Naidoo. Marsha for a long time worked for the Seychelles Tourism Board with her last posting in South Africa but has come home to roost and open her own business, needless to say serving tourists and locals alike, their much needed daily dose of caffeine.
Chatterbox offers a new concept in drinking coffee in Seychelles whereby clients have the opportunity to meet friends, hold meetings and generally relax in a chic environment that offers an opportunity to dine as well as drink top-drawer coffee.
Open 7-days a week, Chatterbox, with its refreshing, modern colour scheme and decor, is the new ‘in’ place to meet friends and enjoy a tasty breakfast and a constantly-rotating menu of dishes for lunch and dinner which caters to the refined tastes and culinary preferences of today’s discerning diner with a wide range of coffees, wine, salads, gourmet stacks, pizzas and even sushi (Wednesdays only).
Chatterbox, which soft opened at the end of April, is already proving to be a hit with all age groups who are attracted to its unique ambiance, fine food, excellent ILLY coffee and value-added WiFi with more facilities planned.
Explaining the reason for his visit, Minister St. Ange explained, ‘It is important that we support these initiatives by Seychellois to offer something new to the community and I wish Marsha and Kirshlee the very best of luck as they continue to innovate and strengthen the Chatterbox brand which I think can grow to become a very influential one‘.
Eden Island is one of the Seychelles’ capital Victoria most prestigious addresses and a magnet for visitors from across Mahe when they spend a day in the capital.
