Crema, in Collier Row Road, Collier Row, opened on Friday June 16, and owner Imran Esghar, 46, has said all food and drink will be half-price for elderly people every Wednesday.

The coffee shop will take over the premises of the former Aladin’s Cave.

Spokeswoman Noma Dakamela, said: “Walking around the community, we see a lot of lonely elderly people who live on their own.

“They hardly get company and this is a way to create a safe environment for them where they can come and meet other people.”

The coffee shop will be open from 7am to 10.30pm Monday to Saturdays and 9am to 9pm on Sundays.

Mr Esghar added: “The feedback were got from people is that Collier Row was drying up and a modern coffee shop was needed in the area.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
