WE shared the news that Muffin Break, Carlisle was to re-open after undergoing a £240,000 refurbishment. 

The coffee shop, located in Carlisle's Lanes Shopping Centre opposite Primark, re-opened on Wednesday, March 27 after closing in February to allow its 'significant expansion and refurbishment' to take place.

As part of the refurbishment, Muffin Break's Carlisle premises have doubled in size and set the stage for FoodCo UK, the coffee shop's parent company, to continue its expansion plans and fulfill its intentions to open additional bakery-cafes.
