Narborough residents will soon have a new place to grab a coffee to enjoy on the go or in a relaxing setting – while keeping an eye out for live train information for the nearby station. The Coffee Club is due to open soon in a former laundry on Coventry Road in the village.
The business is started by local resident, Tom Coles, who, after a career in retail, decided to fulfill his lifelong dream of running his own cafe. Customers will be able to enjoy locally roasted coffee, along with tea, hot chocolate, smoothies and milkshakes among the other beverages that will be available.
Food lovers will be spoiled for choice, with ice cream, waffles and pancakes on the menu. There will also be a selection of cakes and pastries.

According to Tom, the store will have comfortable seating upstairs where customers can relax. The ground floor will be set up for people on the move, such as commuters and local workers.
There will be seats, USB points and even live train timetables on the wall. He decided to offer this unusual service to make sure people don’t have to wait in the rain for their trains.
Tom’s previous job was to ensure that a top quality product could be produced consistently and that the team knew exactly where all the components came from. He says that all coffee products are selected and sourced in the same way.
“We want to support local businesses, where possible, and so we source our coffee from Carrara Coffee Roasters in Market Harborough. They have full traceability of their green beans and good production controls,” he said. he told LeicestershireLive.
“Our cow’s milk will come from Fulmore Farm, in Cosby, and our oat milk from Wild and Furrow, in Market Harborough. All of our milk will come in glass bottles.”
Cakes will be provided by a local baker and gluten-free options will be available for people with intolerances. The Coffee Club should open at the beginning of June.
