A new cafe serving a range of high quality coffees and chocolates has opened in Stamford.
Cafe au Chocolat began welcoming customers through its doors in Irongmonger Street on Wednesday.
Owner Krystyna Szypryt has transformed the former Blockbuster video rental shop and hopes the high standard of products will add something new to Stamford’s long list of coffee shops.
The cafe offers its own blends of coffee as well as handmade crêpes and a wide range of specially-selected dark and milk chocolates you will not find in the supermarket.
The building itself has been totally refurbished, with old storerooms converted into cosy seating areas.
Speaking before the cafe opened last week, Mrs Szypryt said: “I took voluntary redundancy from my previous job, as owning a coffee shop is something I’ve wanted to do since I was a teenager.”
The cafe employs 10 staff, both full and part time.
