The cafe is an old converted bank situated on a busy high street. We want to bring the building back to life emphasizing the uniqueness. We want to create a place where locals and tourists can sit down relax and enjoy great food and drink. Using fresh and locally sourced produce. This is whilst being able to admire local artists artwork hanging on the walls. 

Our aim is to give back to the community and keep local trade alive. With help from the local college we want to be able to help school leavers to gain qualifications within our cafe, helping them in there journey to become successful in hospitality. One of the main features of this cafe is to display and sell local artists artwork, this brings opportunities for budding artists to show the town what they can do and earn money in the process.

With time we want to introduce an alcohol licence so we can open later in the evenings to provide events such as specialised gin nights and cocktail tasting. 

With the money raised with crowdfunder we will be able to secure the premises and cover costs such as equipment and startup costs.
