Good to see the new cafe / wine bar open in Jewry Street in the last couple of days.
We had our first take away coffee this morning, and it was none too bad.
It’s a joint venture between the current England rugby captain Chris Robshaw and friend and former Hampshire cricketer, Kevin Latouf.
It’s located opposite the Discovery Centre in a place that has stood empty for the last three years. And it’s nice to see the empty retail spot filled and the boards taken down to reveal floor to ceiling windows. It’s concrete and chic interior give it something of a Grand Designs project feel.
Mr Robshaw has said: “It’s a new venture for me and we thought we would give it a go. I’m down at Josie’s (Kevin’s bar in Bishop’s Waltham) from time-to-time to see him and his family. It’s doing something besides the rugby, and having interests outside of the game.”
