It's been a popular addition to the Kendall community for almost 10 years but for Jenelle Nosworthy it's back to the beginning after Miss Nellie's Cafe was smashed in the early hours of Saturday.
The cafe at Kendall, about 30 minutes south of Port Macquarie, was inundated with floodwater after the Camden Haven River burst its bank in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Despite a committed effort by locals and friends to sandbag and protect the shop from the rising river levels, nothing could hold back the wall of water.
Although comprehensively insured, floods are not covered and the small family-owned business now faces the arduous task of repairing and restoring the 100-year-old building.
A gofundme page has been set up to help the recovery.
