A Suffolk MP has praised the "fantastic" transformation of local cafe Kesgrave Kitchen after it was taken over by a young couple.

Central Suffolk and North Ipswich MP Dr Dan Poulter visited the cafe in Main Road on Friday, to see the new outdoor seating area and meet owners Chris and Emma Sciortino.

The couple took on the popular breakfast spot in January 2020, before completing a renovation in October.

Aside from classic cooked breakfasts, the family also offer avocado bagels, French toast and pancakes.

Dr Poulter said: "It was fantastic, it is always great to see a business doing well.

"They have put together a great menu and it is fantastic to see so many people enjoying what they have to offer now they have reopened.

"It is great to see that even with the pandemic, a great, young couple have been able to take on a business and make a real success of it."
