Inspired by the taste of South America, Cafuné is the diverse, modern and unique coffee shop that has recently launched in Preston city centre.

Overlooking the Flag Market, the Cafuné coffee shop provides impressive views of the city centre, including the Harris Museum.

Spread over two floors, the coffee shop is perfect for students, business meetings and passer-by’s who simply want to enjoy a hot beverage and snack in a delightful environment.

Husband-and-wife duo Sean Kiernan and Ana Livia M Almeida Kiernan are behind the new venture.


Livia is from Fortaleza, Brazil, and having traveled the lands of South America, she wanted to bring something she loved to Preston.

Livia said: “Cafuné is a diverse place where everybody is welcome.

“We are really happy with how it has turned out and we want to provide a fantastic atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.”


Cafuné provides a wide selection of hot and cold beverages as well as a fantastic array of food and snacks, including the Brazilian custard cake which is proving to be in high demand having sold out within three days.

The South American food provided is full of flavour and surprises that you will not find anywhere else.
