Flashback to some of our popular Fix magazine issues

A nostalgic flashback to some of our popular FIX magazine issues.
Here we featured our customers and their fascinating lines of work. Stage, screen, music, food, books and lots of other clever things!
Of course the top article was always ” Ask Ed “, the legendary agony uncle Barista at our Bicester North branch ( now long gone! ) answering all your problems!

We would like to introduce you to our site managers.

Straight talking, Frankie hails from the emerald isle and has absolutely no connection to Daniel O’Donnell apparently.

The talk of pink unicorns and “The Panda of happiness” is an everyday topic with Emily. Just what’s in those flapjacks?

Top Barista and “Shires celebrity, Maxwell” will also be starting a YOGA class in the new year at our café in Haddenham.

Times are yet to be confirmed but they will be early morning (Er, before opening of course!)

Then why not enjoy a delicious Little Italy Espresso Bar coffee and maybe a little breakfast afterwards. Go on you’ve earned it!

Leamington Spa Station Manager

Leamington Spa is now open and we are pleased to say that Ashley heads the team here.

Local knowledge is paramount, and Ashley certainly knows his beans as well as his customers.

The A-team, (Ah, see what we done there!) consists of Slavia, Kasha, Miles, Maddie….?

We have a brand new branch opening soon, in Leamington Spa Station.

We have been given the go ahead to get started on kitting out the latest addition to the Little Italy Espresso Bar family.   If all things run smoothly or if not, with lots of working late, we are hoping to be open by the end of November.

This will mean a brand new lucky batch of travellers can be delighted with our great tasting coffee, freshly made sandwiches and wonderful snacks and cakes.  Plus we get to add another great team of baristas to the family.

Watch this space for some updates on how things are going.
