ST Peter's Hospice is to be opening its very own coffee shop this month, as part of its department store in Gloucester Road.

It's the charity's first ever cafe, and has come about due to customer demand.

The Nonesuch Cup coffee shop – named after the flower of Bristol – will be opening its doors to the right of the store in Horfield, with an archway linking the shop and cafe.

An outdoor space is also being created for customers to enjoy their coffee in the sun.

Items served will be locally sourced, with the coffees and teas stocked from Bristol-based roastery, Wogan Coffees, and bread from Anstees bakery in Lodge Causeway.

Cereal and freshly-made sandwiches are just a few of the items available on its menu.

Nonesuch Cup will be managed by Matt Higston, a trained chef and barista, and staffed by three other team members and supported by volunteers.

Money raised from the venture will go towards the hospice, which cares for local people with life-limiting illnesses.

Paul Chivers, head of retail at the hospice, said: “It's a very exciting time for St Peter's, with our new cafe generating another income for providing patient care. Our aim for the coffee shop is for it to have a local, community feel and we plan to open more cafes in the future, based upon the success of this new one in Horfield.”

The cafe is expected to be open late July.
