Opening Saint Kitchen, has been a career long dream of ours and now that we’re a few years in to proceedings we’re loving every minute of it.
After a whirlwind turn around of what was Saint Caffe, (we didn’t understand the double f in caffe either) over a very hectic Christmas and New Year fortnight, a lick of paint, a deli stand, a tasty new menu, and a very conscious effort in maintaining the already high coffee standards, we were able to open our doors on a cold January morning to our customers.
So, who took over??
That’s Will, the tall bloke with the stripy apron.
Will has been a chef for the last 16 years, working for Marstons, and then for a lovely independent Italian family, where he learned most of his skills, and how to swear in Italian, mama mia!!
It was working for an independent family that really gave Will the buzz of, “doing it for yourself” and after growing more and more fond of the café culture and speciality coffee, that gave him the clear direction he wanted to take.
