Opening today: a new coffee bar and arts lounge in Urmston
Darby’s Coffee & Arts Lounge is a new coffee shop at 60 Flixton Road,Urmston – on the site of the original Lily’s café. The newly bedecked and prettified lounge is open from today (Monday) and, Urmston Independents predicts, will quickly become a favourite spot for sophisticated Urmstonites, art-loving families and common or garden coffee-heads.
Darby’s Coffee and Arts Lounge promises something a little bit different. An upstairs seating gallery will be the main display area for a range of crafts, artwork, photography and music demos from local, independent artists. All this lovely artisanship will be available to buy direct from Darby’s Coffee and Arts Lounge.
Darby’s Coffee and Arts Lounge is now taking bookings for its Valentines Day afternoon tea event (taking place at tea time this coming Friday) and from Monday 17th they will be running an official ‘opening week’ with freebies and special offers. UPDATE: Darby’s official ‘opening week’ has been postponed, but the cafe is up and running and open for business (February 17th).
As well as Illy coffee, panini, homemade soup and all the lunch and breakfast items you would expect, Darby’s Coffee and Arts Lounge will offer school run lunch boxes for children. Particularly harassed parents might occasionally go to Darby’s Coffee & Arts Lounge for breakfast before school and pick up lunch there as well. Sounds like a good plan to this occasionally lazy mother!
