Joey, Lillian, Cory & Kara

Hi There, 

My name is Kara and together with my partner Cory we run The Mermaid! We run all over the island in our little turquoise truck serving delicious food to happy people. From backyard weddings and big family parties to big events, we will come and feed you your favourite foods!

Recently we have expanded into a small restaurant space as well, The Mermaid Kitchen, in downtown Sydney. Here is where you will find breakfast, lunch, and all day brunch on saturdays! Chefs Joey & Lillian are cooking up a storm in the kitchen and Eli is behind the front counter ready for a chat, so come on by for something to eat and say hello!

 The newest member of The Mermaid Crew! Meet Eli, who will be taking care of your hungriness needs at the front counter of the Mermaid Kitchen!

We are so happy to be settled down for good in a little house in Gabarus with our dog Sweetpea, and to be running our own business here is the cherry on top. I have been working as a pastry chef for the last 10 years and Cory is originally from Cape Breton and his greatest passion in life is cooking breakfast for people. Together we have lived and worked in Toronto, New Zealand and at the Fogo Island Inn in Newfoundland. It's nice to be home.

We are very excited to share our food with you and look forward to filling up happy bellies all over the island. Come on out and let us feed you!
