Ipswich: New cafe coming to Buttermarket centre

A new cafe opens in the Buttermarket shopping centre tomorrow creating 14 jobs.
The business is to be run by Suffolk-based Churchill Catering in the unit previously used by Cafe Giardino.
The centre’s food court closed recently and is not expected to reopen in the near future because work remodelling the shopping centre to include the new Vue cinema is due to start in the new year.
That work is expected to take most of 2014. The first task will be to move TK Maxx from its current first-floor site into what had been the bottom floor of Allders and then TJ Hughes. Once the shop has moved, the upper floor will be opened up and new family restaurants are due to be created. Buttermarket managers Cornerstone are understood to have signed several well-known chains for this area.
Tomorrow’s opening will fill a gap in the food provision at the centre and brings Churchill back into the town – it used to operate the cafe at the Carr Street Co-op.
