From it's position in a warehouse, housed within a traditional mill, Toast in Saddleworth, Greater Manchester, is a very unique place and certainly somewhere different to many mainstream coffee shops.
An artisan cafe, wine bar and coffee shop, the emphasis at Toast is on offering great quality and ethically sourced products at reasonable prices.
Toast's owner, Brian Hockenhull, was the first business customer to place an order through the recently updated Garraways website, shortly after it launched. We got in touch with Brian to find out a little bit more about this highly individual venue.
In regards to the name, Brian told us that 'Toast' relates in different ways to the main product ranges available, which are coffee, bread and wine. The coffee is toasted, wine is often used to accompany a toast and of course, bread can be toasted. Clever.
In addition to a great cup of coffee or refreshing glass of wine, customers can also choose from artisan baked goods, olives and other nibbles, and a fantastic selection of locally sourced snacks complemented by superb flavoured oils and other accompaniments.
Brian is passionate about serving great quality produce that's ethically sourced and selling at fair prices. With Toast receiving rave reviews from customers and critics alike, he is showing how things can be done a little differently to the mainstream coffee shop model.
The business is supported with local employees and a stream of both regular local customers and tourists from further afield. Word seems to be spreading about Toast, with customers from far and wide turning up to try the place for themselves after being recommended by friends.
As somewhere that's quickly gaining a reputation as a perfect retreat to relax, chat and enjoy the great range of produce available, the future looks bright for Toast.
Garraways wish Brian and his team every success for the future.
