Speciality Welsh coffee company Kin+Ilk has launched a café at the Intu-operated St David’s following a successful pop-up at the Cardiff shopping centre.

On Hills Street, the 1,133 sq ft site is adjacent to Hugo Boss and directly accessed via The Hayes.

The café will offer locally sourced products from supplier including artisan bakery Alex Gooch, Douglas Willis Butchers and The Chocolate Brownie Co.

Other F&B options within the development include Wahaca, Wagamama and the more recently opened Slim Chickens.

An all-day menu will be on offer alongside grab and go options, with all takeaway drinks and food are served in 100% compostable cups and packaging.

Kin+Ilk, meaning family and kind, is focused on providing directly sourced coffee from the producer, Finca El Corozo, in partnership with Clifton Coffee, whilst supporting the local communities in El Salvador.

“We initially opened at St David’s for a Christmas pop-up, and soon saw the demand for our unique coffee and range of locally made products,” says Kin+Ilk director Haydn Darke.

“We wanted a more permanent location within the destination, so we waited for the right unit to become available to complement our other coffee shops in Wales, and are pleased to have been able to open our doors and grow our business further at St David’s.”

“We are always looking to support businesses within the region and to provide a diverse offer for the St David’s consumer,” says Intu regional managing director Colin Flinn.

“The success of Kin+Ilk at the centre has proved there is an appetite for responsibly sourced and authentic products. We are pleased to have been able to provide Kin+Ilk with a new long-term location here at St David’s, and further support the ongoing success of local business.”

Both Kin+Ilk and Landsec dealt direct.
