What the what now?! That's right, we're actually open again. Like serving coffee and cake and food stuffs and everything. I'll be honest, it's not the Bellagio or anything, it's more like a building site that's trying to make an effort because he's due in court...BUT WE'RE OPEN!

With the council pushing our planning permission back to the end of the year, we have set up temporarily right next to the unit we'll be moving in to at 32 Dale Street (next to Allotment bar, opposite Cyclefit). It's rough around the edges but it has...charm? More importantly it has our equipment crammed in so we can make all kinds of good coffee again. We've got a choice of espressos on now, and tonnes of filter - with the Fetco Batch Brew getting plumbed in today.

Lucy's back making her sweet treats again, including an incredible Cherry Pie which has gone down so well we're gonna do a regular Cherry Pie and Batch Brew deal. Twin Peaks feels. And we've got a nice little food offering again: homemade porridge, daily soup and sandwiches, and the classic avocado on toast and Idle Hands homemade cowboy beans.

So please come visit us on Dale street at our final ever pop-up (it better f**king be) before we bed down in our permanent home at the start of the new year and everyone starts to say "I remember when Idle Hands was cooler and falling apart, now they have fully painted walls and stuff plumbed in, sell-outs".

We tend to have Gus chilling out in the corner quite a lot too, so even if you don't like coffee, come meet our best mate.
