New Café ‘As Thyme Goes By’ started its first day of business on 8 May 2018 in Crookes, serving a range of home-baked cakes, sandwiches as well as tea and coffee.
A huge attractive artwork is on the side of the building, which was just a wall of bricks before being painted by artist Mr KISK.
Lucy Arnold, 27, Personal Trainer, living in Nether Edge, said: “The artwork on the side of the building is really cool and different. It brings something different to light up your eyes.”
She added: “The food is really nice, it’s really fresh and I’m really happy with it. I can’t wish anything better. We passed quite a lot and we’ve seen the big site. We knew today is the opening day so we decided to come.”
Kerry Porter, 47, Administrator, said: “I would say this is a very traditional English and Mediterranean style café. The food is really good and traditional and I really enjoyed.
“But I think more sophisticated menu could be provided for people to enjoy more variety of flavours. There are meat board, cheese board and salmon board but there is no vegetarian board. I think it would be better to at least have the menu for vegetarians.” She added.
Neil Bocker, 55, Retired, living in Drafield, said: “The service is great, lovely friendly and fast service. The staffs get nice touch with you checking out what you need and whether you enjoy or not. I had a very good experience here.”
Sare Carter, 46, Stay-at-home mom, living in 37 Beanmonc Road North, said: “It is lovely environment, really well-done decorated. The music is nice as well. I like it, the shop is great. I’ll definitely come again.”
The café opens seven days from 9am to 5pm and on Thursday the opening hour will be extended to 7pm.
