That’s just one of the delicacies at Ruddington’s newest coffee house on Dutton’s Hill!
Jasper’s Café is the idea of Paul Carver and Cathy Hatfield who’ve always dreamed of owning their own coffee shop. This week it became a reality.
It now operates during daytime hours in the premises of Bar Six – where Paul has previously served slightly stronger drinks in the evening for around a year. On Wednesday’s opening day (the 29th of March) the new business was already doing a brisk trade!
Paul told RUDDINGTON.info: “This particular premises wasn’t used during the day – it was going to waste as I thought – so we approached John (Noble) and Lucy (Would) to see if we could hire it on a daily basis from them. And that’s where it came from!”
It adds another contemporary destination for those visiting Ruddington to pop into for a coffee and a chat, read a book, peruse the papers, or just to sit at the window and watch the world go by.
Jasper’s Café is currently open Tuesdays to Saturdays, from 8am to 3pm, but they’re hoping to be able to open 7 days a week soon. The Jasper’s branding is set to appear alongside that of Bar Six at No.6 Wilford Road shortly. As well as a range of hot drinks they serve an all day breakfast and other hot food such as traditional paninis, jacket potatoes, and soup. It’s even possible to swap your hot beverage for something alcoholic if you dine after 11am.
Of course you definitely should try something from their impressive range of home made cakes – above all Jasper’s Carrot Cake (!)…
Aptly, that’s actually their “nominated cake” for fundraising this month. Paul explains “We want to support local charities and events, so we’re looking for suggestions for a local charity that will receive a donation from EVERY slice sold of our nominated cake of the month. So please get suggesting and asking friends to comment and like our Facebook page.”
