In its place, LK (subtitled Coffee and More…) has taken over. I visited after they’d been open for just around two months.The interior remains as it was in the previous incarnation. It’s simple and functional, with sit-in space for around ten people.
The menu has been given a refresh, with good looking lunch deals and regularly changing hot specials. I was visiting at breakfast, so opted for a bacon and black pudding roll, which seems to have become my weapon of choice, of late. The friendly counter man set about preparing this.I added an espresso, which was made with Segafredo beans. It’s not a favourite with me, but the counter man said that it had found favour with recent tourist trade, so it’s perhaps a good fit for this location.
I wandered on with my roll in hand, eating as I strolled. It proved to be good, with the morning roll particularly fresh. The black pudding was of good quality, too. I was pleased with it.
So overall, LK is doing solidly good work. The location has had some turnover, of late, so it will have a battle with other nearby shops, such as Freshcut and No 63 that are ploughing much the same furrow, to win custom. I wish it good luck in that endeavour.
