A new coffee shop opens on London Road, Sam's Cafe on Frith Road (possibly) closes

26 Apr 2014


A new cafe and coffee shop called Finjan has opened at 74 London Road, offering cooked breakfasts, sandwiches, salads, cakes, coffee, and tea. The coffee menu includes frappes and syrup shots, and a special of “Nutellino” — coffee with Nutella.

The food is halal, so the cooked breakfast includes beef sausages rather than pork (and no bacon). Vegetarian sausages are also available, and there's an option to have courgettes and/or aubergines included in your breakfast too.


Home N Fashion at 5 Crown Hill has closed.

Sam's Cafe at 78c Frith Road also seems to have closed, though we don't yet know if this is temporary or permanent.
