Everyone meet Ishika, or as we know her, Cheeky! This little pocket rocket is the entertainment of Ciao! You’ll catch this cheeky gal behind the counter every morning ready and waiting to take your order! Ishika’s signature toastie has made it to the Ciao Hall of Fame, a toastie so good it’s even been named after her! Make sure you try our Cheeky Toastie next time you’re in store! In her down time, Ishika relaxes with her partner and fur baby, Tuffy 🐕 Fun fact about Ishika is that she is left handed! Your morning is guaranteed to be brightened if you’re served by Cheeky, we just can’t get enough of her infectious joy and laughter! 🙈



Everyone meet Connie, as a professional cake decorator for almost 20 years and a previous decorator at Continental cakes we have been fortunate enough to say that we have her on our Ciao team. One of Connie’s greatest achievements was raising her 3 wonderful children whilst being a full time cake decorator.🎂 💖



Everyone meet Jacob! Jacob is going on his sixth year here with us at Ciao and is thoroughly loved by all our customers. With Italian blood running through his veins, Jacob is the man to make your irresistible afternoon pick me up. We are very proud to have seen Jacob develop his knack for coffee and more than grateful to have Jacob as one of our head baristas in our awesome team. He loves spending his spare time with his family even if that means inviting them to the cafe whilst he works. It’ll be love at first sip when Jacob makes your next coffee 🇮🇹



Everyone meet Grace! Grace is our trainee cake decorator and is learning all the tricks of the trade here at Ciao. When she’s not working on her piping techniques, you’ll see Grace’s lovely smile behind the counter of the cafe! Grace can’t get enough of baking and takes her knowledge out side of work and home to her family where she’ll cook up a storm! Grace is a feen for animals, sharing her home with 2 dogs, 3 bunnies, 15 chickens, 5 ducks and 2 guinea pigs, and has mastered the art of feeding them all within ten minutes! Grace is learning how to speak Maltese and hopes to one day travel to her family’s home country. Say hey to Grace next time you see her 🧁
