Kin+Ilk steams into St David’s
Welsh coffee company Kin+Ilk has launched a new 1,133 square foot outlet at St David’s Cardiff.
Following a successful pop-up, the brand has signed for a permanent site on Hills Street in a unit adjacent to Hugo Boss.
The brand focuses on providing directly sourced coffee from producer Finca El Corozo in partnership with Clifton Coffee. It also offers a range of locally sourced food using products from Welsh companies such as artisan bakery supplier Alex Gooch, The Chocolate Brownie Co. and Douglas Willis Butchers. The space can serve up to 56 covers for breakfast, lunch or brunch and also has a grab and go offer.
Haydn Darke, director at Kin+Ilk, said: “We initially opened at St David’s for a Christmas pop-up and soon saw the demand for our unique coffee and range of locally made products. We wanted a more permanent location within the destination, so we waited for the right unit to become available to complement our other coffee shops in Wales, and are pleased to have been able to open our doors and grow our business further at St David’s.”
The launch follows on from the recent opening of Hollister’s new-look concept store on Upper Grand Arcade at St David’s.
Speaking on behalf of the St David’s Partnership, Colin Flinn, intu’s regional managing director, said:: “We are always looking to support businesses within the region and to provide a diverse offer for the St David’s consumer. The success of Kin+Ilk at the centre has proved there is an appetite for responsibly sourced and authentic products. We are pleased to have been able to provide Kin+Ilk with a new long-term location here at St David’s, and further support the ongoing success of local business.”
