A popular coffee shop has announced that it will be opening a sixth store on Penarth’s seaside esplanade.

Coffi Co, which has five stores across South Wales, is opening a new shop at the old Fig Tree restaurant.

The Fig Tree, which was once named the best restaurant in Wales, closed down in 2019 after 10 years of business.

Now Coffi Co will open its sixth store on the site in April.

The company began in 2015 when its founder had the idea of converting an old shipping container into a coffee shop.

Later that year, it opened its first store in Cardiff Bay using 3 shipping containers.

Coffi Co has since expanded throughout South Wales with six stores in Cathays, Penarth and Porthcawl.

Known for reworking trendy and urban spaces, Coffi Co venues can be hired out for up to 100 people and they host live music events throughout the year.

Their menu includes a range of drinks and both hot and cold food.

They announced their new store in a Facebook post on Saturday: “We’re excited to announce our newest Coffi Co location at the old ‘Fig Tree’ restaurant on Penarth Seafront.

“We cannot wait to bring the Coffi Co vibe to Penarth seafront.''
