Cafe bids to open courtyard
Caffe Arabica is submitting a planning permission to open the courtyard to the rear of the property to customers.
Halil Cankurt, owner of the coffee shop on North View, would like to be able to offer customers use of the sunny courtyard during daytime hours.
A recently added deck at the front of the property has allowed for more seating outside the cafe, however Halil says that it’s not enough. He says that customers ask to sit outside and extra space in the sun would be good for the business.
