This week in Love Local we meet the lovely Sarah and Sara from No. 64 Coffee and Brunch.
Located on the old high street Intra, they have done amazing well, even more so as they opened just before the first lockdown! But their reputation is being lovingly spread far and wide, I’m always hearing people rave about them, especially the brownies! I can definitely recommend their veggie sausage rolls, the best I’ve ever tasted! They have a fantastic range of food, including veggie and Vegan, and top coffee (try the iced latte with salted caramel!)
