The range of independent shops in Beeston has been boosted today (10 February 2015) by the opening the Brew Coffee Shop on Beeston Road.

Lord Mayor and local councillor, David Congreve cut the ribbon to officially open the café, which has created five new jobs including an apprenticeship. Commenting on the shop he said:

“It’s great to see an upmarket coffee shop in Beeston. It looks good, it looks professional and it looks tempting. The coffee and scone I’ve just had were delicious.”

Cllr Angela Gabriel has been hoping to open a coffee shop in Beeston for some time. Unable to secure premises locally, she opened the Brew Tea Rooms in Rothwell three years ago, it is run by her son-in-law Ade Hartley. The Beeston premises, which were previously occupied by a florist, became available towards the end of last year and have been refurbished and stocked with vintage items from Leeds’ second hand shops.

Ade Hartley who manages both the Beeston and Rothwell shops said:

“Brew is a coffee shop with the personal touch, we hope to make sure that all our customers from 6 months with our child friendly menu and toy box, to 63 years with our fabulous coffee and cakes enjoy their time in Brew.

“We have free WiFi, book exchange and want to be a hub of the community. We offer a varied menu from a full breakfast to homemade soup and sandwiches including a wide range of coffees and teas.

“Beeston deserves a good coffee shop and hopefully we are here to provide them with one!”
