The belief that a day out is only complete with a trip to a coffee house lies behind a new business in Holbeach.
Caffe Aurora in High Street, formerly The Holbeach Bistro, has been opened by directors Rosemary Cameron and son-in-law Cormac O’Hara, originally from Northern Ireland.
The coffee house has a range of Italian-blend coffees, home-made cakes, soup and quiches to serve customers between 8am and 6pm, Monday to Saturday.
Cormac said: “We were looking at different sites in Holbeach where we could open the business when we decided that the coffee house needed to have a more traditional name.
“Caffe Aurora came from bringing together the Italian name for coffee and the middle name of one of my two daughters.
“The name adds a sort of quirkiness to the coffee house and since we opened on January 15, every day has been busier than the one before.”
Cormac, who brings 25 years of hotel management experience to the business, is supported by his wife Sophie, sister-in-law Debra and three other members of staff.
There is also a royal connection at Caffe Aurora as Rosemary trained as a baker at the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.
Cormac said: “Going out for coffee is now a natural part of spending a day in town and our idea is to give people a nice experience in a town that deserves to have a coffee house like this.”
