DUBBO'S central business district community received a confidence boost as Sprout Cafe re-opened its doors.
New owners Wassim Hayla and his wife Jodie Cross said there was a big market for food service in the city.
Mr Hayla said the Christmas season was the "perfect time" to open and already business was strong.
Since a young age he had been creative and passionate with food and always dreamed to open his own cafe.
Mr Hayla has a passion for hospitality because of his Lebanese culture and wanted to add a part of his culture into Australian cuisine.
"It is a tradition to invite people into your home, to cook for them and be proud of the food you serve," he said.
"Having my own cafe means I can offer something of my own."
Mr Hayla and his wife had lived at Dubbo but moved to Sydney for a short while.
The "hectic lifestyle" in the big city made him pack his bags and return to the country.
"Even though Dubbo is becoming a bigger city, it still [has] the heart of a country town," he said.
"The lifestyle is great and the people are friendly and say hello to each other. I have no regrets coming back."
Mr Hayla said he loved the Dubbo community and purchased his produce from the farmers' market to support local farmers.
Sprout Cafe aims to be an organic option for Dubbo residents and caters for different dietary requirements.
The cafe opens from 7am to 7pm seven days a week, located at 1/43 Macquarie Street.
