A NEW coffee shop has opened up in Kimberley and the owner says business has been ‘amazing’ in the first week.

Madhatters has opened up next door to Image Beauty Salon in Main Street.

Kimberley man Nygel Stevenson said opening a coffee shop is the fulfilment of a lifelong dream.

“It’s always been my dream to have my own coffee shop. The premises came up and I went for it,” he said.

“I know people say it’s not the right time to open a business but I have had an amazing first week and the support from local people has been incredible.”

Madhatters is open for morning coffee, light lunches and afternoon teas from 9am till 4pm Tuesday to Saturday.

Small community groups or organisations can use it as a meeting place in the evenings, or on Sundays and Mondays.
