LOOKING for a quiet space to relax and have a brew in Royton?
Tucked away on Shepherd Street in the Old Mill is the town’s newest coffee shop with an eco-friendly edge.
Bru’d Awakenin’s, run by Royton-based Shelby Bunn, is offering a range of treats from vegan and non-vegan cakes, locally sourced coffee and a selection of homemade wraps, bagels and toasted sourdough sandwiches.
Shelby, who used to work in the travel industry, is looking forward to the fresh, new challenge of running her own business and giving people a new place to come and relax off the main street.
Speaking to the Correspondent she said: “There are a few places nearby but if you wanted something a bit different and a quirky you have to go into Manchester.
“When this space became available it was too good of an opportunity to miss. So, I took a leap of faith in bringing something new into the town.
“All my produce is from local suppliers – from the milk down to vegetables.
“Everything I buy is locally sourced with the aim to support other local businesses and to shop local for my ingredients”.
At a time when recycling and going green is important, Shelby is doing her bit to help save the planet.
“I want Bru’d Awakenin’s to be as ethical as possible and environmentally friendly.
“We are using the Manchester Bee paper straws and not having single use plastics”.
There is plenty on offer in this eco-friendly coffee shop. The menu boasts a selection of vegan options from “Hav-a-falafel”, a special FLT (facon, lettuce, tomato) to the BBQ Jackfruit with Violife Cheeze wrap.
For the non-vegan taste buds you can choose from the traditional BLT, the New Yorker sourdough sandwiches and Smokey Crispy Bacon Bagels.
