AN INTERNATIONAL coffee chain which is heading for Newport is set to open around Easter.

Starbucks, which is opening in partnership with franchisee 23.5 Degrees, is understood to be planned for the former Jessops photographic shop on Upper St James’s Street.

The branch of the coffee shop, which could create ten new jobs, was originally planned to open in October.

Slightly off topic - what we need on the Island is a water park - Romsey Rapids, The Pyramids in Southsea, everyone loves them. Always busy, customers and revenue. Why is the IOW so behind the mainland at times?

Doesn't anyone use instant (better not advertise) coffee anymore?

Debbie, I don't think Asda will build. I think you can say good bye to that proposition.

I for one are glad. Starbucks is great...great coffee...free Wifi...inviting atmosphere...the best staff...and it's warm.

Costa coffee lacks substance (it feels like Pizzahut...bland and no atmosphere) but that's my opinion as no doubt others love it, Thorntons on the otherhand is great coffee but it's a pokey store to sit in and you feel rushed.

So bring on Starbucks and hopefully Gregg's will follow :)
