Loves Cafe in West Street - an 'alternative to the High Street' this Christmas.


COFFEE and crafts is the unusual combination on offer at one diverse Weston eatery during late-night shopping events this Christmas.

Loves Café in West Street has opened its doors during the Thursday events to arts and crafts collective Made In Weston.

The group comprises an eclectic mix of stalls offering festive gifts of all kinds, alongside the café’s Christmas offering of tapas by candlelight.

Loves owner Anna Southwell said: “Our Christmas tree is covered in handcrafted decorations which are for sale and a new season of local art is going up on the wall for sale over Christmas.

“It’s like an alternative to the High Street.”
