A popular cafe in Burnham-On-Sea has unveiled a refurbishment of its facilities this month.
Coffee Corner at the junction of Abingdon Street and Old Station Approach has undergone a transformation with a modern and new colourful theme.
Alongside its wide menu of freshly-cooked breakfasts, lunches, light bites, cakes and quality coffees, which includes a variety of vegan and gluten-free products, the cafe has also expanded into selling a variety of locally-sourced jams and chutneys, alongside tasty treats for its four-legged canine visitors.
The cafe has become a popular place for people to bring their dogs as they offer a wide range of canine treats including the popular Doggy Donuts.
Owners George Eckford and Zena Driver say the new décor will feel more positive and inviting not just for the customers but also for its staff too.
Zena said: “We have such a lovely range of customers that come in and our success is down to them. If it weren’t for them, we wouldn’t be here now.”
“We have been here for about 3 years now and it was a good opportunity to brighten up the cafe. All of our customers have been so positive and we look forward to welcoming new customers”
A new feature in the café is also an idea of a story time where Shelley, a local Usbourne book seller is to read selected stories to children of a variety of age groups to create a more family-friendly atmosphere. Story time will be taking place on a Monday morning and if it is successful there may be art and craft sessions as well.
Other new ideas in the cafe are a range of unique products which people can buy as gifts or momentos, these include a range of handmade mugs which are made by a local artist, Dragonfly Pottery and Glass, as pictured below.
They have also added packs of homemade fudge for people to buy, party sets, ice creams and are hoping to add more ideas in the future.
