History: I opened Berry’s in 2017 and have now been trading for three years. As the last of my children left senior school I realised it was my time to develop all the ideas I have had, having been in hospitality all my working life.

My husband made all the recycled furniture and it has been a real family affair,

Style of food: Breakfasts, sandwiches, baguettes, cakes, freshly- made scones and of course the famous ice-cream Freak Shakes.

Menu sample: When I wrote my business plan I realised there was nowhere in Brampton where young people could catch up with friends and be treated like adults, so as we developed the humble milk shake and they have advanced into the amazing creations we create now, complete with cream, all sorts of sprinkles and a donut on the straw.

There are eight different flavours, from Oreo to chocolate and speciality ones we add to the menu during the seasons, but the Christmas ones are my favourite. They come in small (£2.95), reg (£3.95), large (£4.95) and monster (£5.95).

Other drinks include smoothies at £3.50 and a range of coffees. We are also licensed and as well as wine and beers we also mix cocktails (£5).

We offer a range of food, including all-day breakfast of bacon, eggs, tomatoes, toast and tea (£5), bacon or sausage rolls (£3), crumpets, croissants, bagel or toasted teacake, all £2. Sandwiches start at £3.95 for cheese or ham and go up to £5.10 for sweet chilli chicken, Cumberland sausage and tomato chilli chutney, bacon, Brie and chutney or mozzarella, pesto and sun dried tomato panini – all served with side salad, tortillas and homemade coleslaw.

In their own words: We have a great sense of community within Brampton and try to help by donating to fundraisers.

My initial idea was to provide a place young people could meet hence the idea of the ‘Freak Shakes’, but without alienating adults.

We have totally succeeded in this and have all ages coming in. We’re constantly coming up with ideas and have a quiz night once a month and also visiting acts and performers.
