A new health eating cafe has officially opened at a borough business park.
Mayor Norma Redfearn was on hand to perform the honours last week at Cobalt Business Park to open Spud & Lettuce.
The cafe, which provides healthy breakfasts and lunch, joins other shops at Cobalt Central including Tesco, Greggs and Navaho Coffee Shop.
Simon Gould, business manager at Spud & Lettuce, said: “We provide not only healthy, hardy food at good value for money to take out, but also a relaxing environment to dine on our premises.
“Of course we aren’t just limited to spuds and salad’s, we also make fresh real fruit smoothies, poached eggs and protein drinks.”
Mrs Redfearn said: “This new cafe is great news for everyone working in the area and people living nearby who can enjoy tasty and healthy food.”
“I would also like to wish Spud & Lettuce every success with their new venture and congratulate Cobalt Park on filling their final business unit at Cobalt Central.”
Lynn Cramman, business development manager at Cobalt Park, added: “There is a great buzz around the park for the opening of Spud & Lettuce, you only have to look at their Facebook page to see how popular it is going to be.
“The café fits in well with the whole ethos of the business park supporting the health and wellbeing of our workforce with hundreds of events throughout the year and many active travel incentives and events.”
