Opposite Attraction

Opposite Attraction
Since opening in VQ in 2009, Opposite Cafe has continued to make a name for itself for healthy, homemade food and coffee. With a record of success at the Northern Barista Championships, including a third place last year for manager Howard Barwick, Opposite are now regarded as one of the top coffee bars in the country.
Nor is this simply a matter of personal taste as, in addition to being named in The Guardian’s list of top 10 Coffee Bars, Opposite have recently been featured in The Independent’s list of the Top 50 Coffee Shops in the UK.
According to Maxwell Colonna-Dashwood, the UK Barista champion and owner of Colonna & Smalls, “This tiny unit in the Victoria Quarter was set up to explore speciality coffee, with the food and usual cafe offerings stripped right back so that it’s an exciting coffee experience.”
Opposite’s dedication to speciality coffees, including their own blends, makes it a Mecca for coffee devotees and ensures its reputation is well deserved.
Owner, Louisa Henry said, “VQ is the perfect setting for us, with customers who appreciate good quality in food and drink – something we've always strived to achieve.”
Lou sources beans from world renowned micro-roasters such as Square Mile Coffee and Has Bean, and the cafe also offers seasonal espressos - different blends of espresso beans from around the world depending on what greens are in season – as well as single origin coffee, really fair Fairtrade.
“We’re simply going to make the best coffee we can,” says Lou, “so that we do justice to the people who’ve grown it, farmed it and produced it.”
VQ Centre Director, John Bade added, “For a small independent such as Opposite to the plaudits of two national newspapers is a credit to Lou & her team. Opposite has developed a loyal customer base since they opened here, which I’m sure will continue to grow over coming years.”

Meet Made In Chelsea’s Jamie Laing
Tuesday 26th February 2013
4pm to 6pm

You’ve seen the idea develop on the small screen, now meet Made In Chelsea’s very own Willy Wonka, Jamie Laing, signing his Candy Kitten sweets range, available exclusively at Harvey Nichols.

Jamie Laing has had a lifelong dream of creating a sexy sweet shop as seen on the small screen, and his ideas have now been brought to life with a brand new range of fun and delicious candies and accessories.

The Candy Kittens range includes a variety of scrumptious sweets such as strawberry Cut Rock Cubes presented in retro Kilner jars and sour watermelon Mini Square Lollipops. Why not try a trio of Candy Canes or fun lollipops featuring some of Jamie’s popular catchphrases.

The Candy Kittens Pink Gift Box offers a great selection of the Candy Kittens range including a Candy Kittens pencil case, key ring, limited edition tote bag, large Candy Kittens lollipop, a trio of candy canes and a bag of Cut Rock Cubes, priced at £25.

As an extra special treat, in 20 of the Candy Kittens Gold Gift boxes Jamie has hidden a Candy Kittens bracelet, worth £32.50.

After finishing school, Jamie Laing decided to take a year out and travel around South America and USA. This is where the idea of Candy Kittens was born. After visiting a sweet shop in New York, Jamie knew this is what he wanted to do.

“I wanted to have beautiful, sexy, fun, flirty girls alongside the sweets,” smiles Jamie.

Whilst other young boys dreamt of becoming a footballer or film star Jamie always had dreams of running his own business. He has a passion and love for all things sweet and now wants to add his own flair to the confectionery industry that has been a large part of his family history.
Jamie is heir to the McVitie's fortune and his ancestors are credited with creating the Jaffa Cake, Digestive and Rich Tea Biscuit.

Candy Kittens is Jamie’s first business. He has worked hard to make his sweet dream come true and hopes you all enjoy sharing it with him at……
