A South American inspired cafe and coffee shop is opening its doors in Preston city centre.

It is hoped to launch in early May, providing a unique blend of coffee, along with a selection of food including meals, snacks and more indulgent treats made from authentic recipes.

Opening at 35 Market Place, which was a former salon and next door to Scrumptious, the coffee shop will be spread over two floors overlooking the Flag Market.

The second floor holds extraordinary views of the Harris Museum and Old Post Office, becoming the perfect spot for you to have a cuppa whilst enjoying the surroundings.

Husband and wife team Sean Kiernan and Ana Livia M Almeida Kiernan are behind the venture.

Livia, from Fortaleza, Brazil, said: “We have both lived and worked in various countries in South America, before we came to live here in Preston we were living together in Buenos Aires in Argentina.

“We are hoping to open early May, but we don’t have an exact date yet.

“Inside we have two floors.

“Upstairs we have an amazing view of the historic Harris Museum, Flag Market and Old Post office.”
