Wright’s cafe in Bury St Edmunds, known for its gourmet cheese toasties and cakes, has moved to a larger site.
The shop is currently offering takeaways only because of lockdown - but is looking forward to welcoming customers inside its new base on Cornhill once restrictions ease.
Customers are currently being asked to book ahead where possible to help social distancing. Owner Adam Wright said: “We have had a great response already, with people phoning up to book a slot.
“When they collect their orders, we are serving them through a hatch on Woolhall Street.”
He added the cafe also has a whole range of hygiene and social distance measures in place.

“We have got loads of space here, so we can have more seating, and we have a new rotisserie oven,” Mr Wright said.
“We are going to offer new brunch and lunch menus and then slowly build up.”
He added Wright’s is also planning to apply for an alcohol licence.
Mr Wright started out two years ago with a stall on Bury market, which proved very popular, offering his signature toasties as well as salads.
His team were soon taking their goodies to festivals, events, farmers markets, film shoots and weddings.
