The property that once housed Orange's most unusual café - Bissys - has been sold after being on the market for some months.




It was sold in the mid-$700,000s by Chris Gryllis Real Estate, with settlement late this week.

The land is opposite the skate park, near several schools and a short walk from Orange City Bowling Club and the aquatic centre.

Bissys was not just a hospitality venue selling coffee, homemade slices, big breakfasts, salads, sandwiches and burgers, but a place that introduced permaculture alongside the pancakes and poached eggs.

Its gardens, outdoor areas and chickens, and indoor booths, emporium, events and private rooms, made it unlike any other joint in town.


The café also hired bikes (including tandems) and sold gifts and hampers.

The premises was to be sold with vacant possession, and the registered business name Bissy’s Cafe was not included.



The new owners, who wished to remain anonymous, have no plans to continue with a hospitality venue and will instead turn the property into a home.
