A café specialising in handcrafted food, and brunch at the weekend, has opened its doors in St Ives.
Little Acre Kitchen, in Crown Street, serves breakfast and lunch items, and will be open for restaurant evenings on Thursdays and Fridays from June.
Owned by husband and wife team, Dominic and Elizabeth Hall, the café offers sweet treats as well, like doughnut of the day and hot chocolate, and even delivers to a nearby science park.
Mrs Hall said: “We’re focusing on using as much local produce as possible. It’s more food than cake. We’re really excited, and it’s been so far so good.”
The couple, both 29, live in Warboys and already have culinary experience – Mr Hall works as a chef onsite while Mrs Hall used to be assistant manger at The Cock, in Hemingford Grey.
Not content on just one business venture though, Mrs Hall also runs an events business behind the café.
“We only opened a week ago and we’ve already had positive feedback,” she added.
