I had to do an early morning delivery and found myself trawling for that first cup of coffee. Chaplins in Woodmill Lane and the Wimpy looked like my best options. They open around 7am. But I was still a little too early. They are followed by Savannah who are also in Woodmill, Mon Petit Pain in Gray and Mario’s at the Waterfront who all open at 7.30.
Which leaves me wondering whether there isn’t an opportunity for a smaller coffee shop to cater for the early risers. Why not an outrageous special to carve a niche and build brand loyalty? One could only try.
Sunday was 07h30 with Chaplins and Caffe Mario’s open with Savannah still setting up. Wimpy opened I assume at eight.
