A family-run pop-up cafe will serve up a treat at the new Wisbech Tesco store.

Giraffe is making the Cromwell Road Leisure Park store its temporary home from February 20 to March 20, with plans in place to set up a permanent home elsewhere in the town in May.

Breakfast baps, pastries, sandwiches and soups will be on offer, alongside gourmet coffee and smoothies.

The Giraffe chain of restaurants was set up by husband and wife Russel and Juliette Joffe with the help of long-term friend Andrew Jacobs.

The business is owned by Tesco and operates 49 restaurants in the UK, five of which are located in airports, as well as a restaurant in the United Arab Emirates.
