Kettering's popular Kafe Bloc will be opening a dedicated deli just two doors down later in July.

Kafe Bloc's owner, Tony Bagshaw, adapted his business during lockdown by selling fresh produce to customers when the cafe had to close.

The success of Kafe Bloc's deli operation inspired Tony to open a dedicated shop just two doors down in Picadilly Buildings on Sheep Steet.

Tony said: "We are pretty much kitted out inside but it's not quite ready to open.

"I haven't quite got enough staff to run both businesses but all going well, it should be open in mid-July."

Tony said Kafe Bloc will carry on doing what it does best and the Deli will sell produce that Kafe Bloc has been offering throughout lockdown and more.

Tony said: "The top hat doughnuts have been very popular because they take people back to their youth."

Tony said it was clear some people have now returned to supermarkets but Kafe Bloc's made-to-order afternoon tea sets have taken off.

"They've gone crazy," Tony said. Kafe Bloc is offering afternoon tea sets for £24 for two, or £44 for four. It can be delivered within two miles for £4.

The set comes with four different sandwiches, salad, scones with homemade jam and clotted cream, strawberries and a selection of sweet treats.
