Twenty years ago, in April 1989, Frank and Ellen Heneghan opened their first cafe in The Bridge Mills. They painstakingly restored the derelict corn mill that had functioned until the 1970s.
In 2004, they expanded their Sea Road Floral premises, opening the budding cafe, serving vegetarian cuisine and home baking. Following on the award winning success of the Budding Cafe, they are opening an additional outlet.
The new Budding Tea Room on the ground floor of the Bridge Mills specialises in serving high quality loose leaf teas, Italian coffee they import, along with their delicious scones and home baking.
The shop stocks a wide range of unique ceramics, floral gifts including plants and flowers, and local photography. The new cafe is the perfect spot for relaxing – sharing a cup of tea and warm conversation.
