Cafe on the Corner
Hi, I’m Jane, the owner of The Cafe on the Corner, which has been open for 3 1/2 years at 16 Hamilton Road. I worked at Tesco for five years before I made the decision, six months ago, to leave there and run my own business. I have always wanted to run my own cafe and as my three sons have are now grown up, I thought this would be the ideal time to start my own business.
One of the best things about working at Tesco was meeting and talking to the customers. You hear some interesting local facts and stories. We get a lot of local people in the cafe; I have made some good friends already and hope to make many more. A lot of customers have said they like coming to the cafe for its friendly atmosphere.
The cafe sells a selection of hot and cold drinks, snacks, breakfast, lunches, ice creams and desserts. We also have a children’s menu. We have a good reputation for being a fast service and being are a friendly bunch.
We like to source our ingredients from local suppliers like ‘Michael’s Butchers’, ‘The Bakery’ and ‘Fruit and Flowers’.
Our opening times are Monday-Thursday 9-4, Friday-Saturday 8-4 and Sunday 9-3.
All of our food is cooked to order and meals can be customised to your liking, as we are happy to swap any of the included options for another of similar value, plus you can always add extras. Also, our popular breakfasts are available all day.
We offer a large selection of meals and a range of desserts, so popping in with friends and family is not just a lovely way to enjoy your meals together in a great environment, but it’s also kind on your wallet.
For those on the go, we provide a take-away option on most of our food and drinks; a perfect way to take your menu favourites home or to work!
We will be introducing some favourite winter warmers very soon, so please look out for these on our specials board. I will keep you updated on this and any other news on our Facebook page: Cafe on the Corner.
