Yasmin Wyatt, operations director with Two Magpies, said today that the Woodbridge branch had done 50% more business than the rest of the group since it opened. 

She added: “It has been incredibly busy and it has not stopped since. The opening day was incredible and the reaction of the customers was really great. We have had really good support since we opened and it has been our busiest site by about 50 per cent.” 

A team of pastry chefs, bakers and baristas run the café, the fourth Two Magpies in Suffolk, which can serve up to 50 customers.
