A new retro-inspired café has launched in a popular town centre location. 

What a Brew-Tea has opened in the former home of Café at Number 4 in The Walk in Beccles.

Shanai Ward, 21, and Jodie Kerr, 33, launched their new business on Wednesday but first met while working together at the Wine Vaults.

Ms Ward said: "Everyone's been so supportive, it's been mental. 

"It's gone really, really well and we've been rushed off our feet."

The café serves homemade cakes, cooked lunches and breakfasts, coffees and loose-leaf teas. 

Ms Kerr added: "We'll be finding our feet in the next few months, but we know we work well together."

The café has vintage and retro influences, including details such as a record player on which customers can play their own vinyl. 

The duo have plans to develop the business in the coming months and want to introduce alcohol and bottomless brunches.

The opening hours are from Tuesday to Saturday between 9am and 4pm and from 9am to midday on Sunday.
