UPDATE: Laura's

We’re sad to be saying goodbye to the amazing Laura Giordano during lockdown. Laura has done an amazing job bringing a little slice of Naples into our foyer at The Art House and we wish her lots of luck for the future.

It’s a little too soon for us to share details of what’s coming next but rest assured, we’re still as passionate about great coffee as ever and we’re very excited to embark on a new café adventure!
