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.
