Busy Beans Coffee certainly lived up to its name with the launch of its first coffee shop and café in Littleborough on Saturday (2 November).
Originally a mobile coffee bar frequently seen at major events in the borough, Becky and Danny O’Neill, of Milnrow, have set up Busy Beans’ first shop at 38 Victoria Street, offering coffee and cake to all.
Busy Beans began as a mobile coffee service in 2015 after Becky graduated from university.
Danny, who was already part of the coffee industry at the time, said: “We wanted to be different and unique, so we got the trailer.”
Becky, who bakes all of their cakes, continued: “We’d already planned to open a shop, so when this came up, we saw the opportunity and went for it. Everyone was asking us where they could go for one of our coffees, or where we were going to be next.”
After several years of running the popular mobile service, Busy Beans has taken over the former Veggie Vixen café and zero waste shop, which closed at the end of September due to personal circumstances.
In addition to its Great Taste award-winning coffee, Busy Beans offers brunch and additional hot drinks, plus a range of desserts, mini bites and cold drinks.
Several varieties of dairy-free milks are available, including a squirty cream alternative for hot chocolates, and at least one vegan cake each day.
Becky added: “Pretty much everything on the menu can be made vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free, so please ask.”
The café is open from 8am-4pm from Monday to Saturday, and from 9.30am-3pm on Sundays.
The Busy Beans trailer will next be around at the Littleborough Christmas light switch-on.
