not just another coffee shop ...
In January 2014 brown bag was thrilled to receive news that we had been granted the Royal Warrant of Appointment of Caterers to Her Majesty The Queen.
brown bag was born in June 2003 in Windsor. Tucked away in a pretty cobbled street in view of Windsor Castle, a dream became reality - to offer you an alternative to mass-produced convenience food and provide excellent quality, fresh food and a personal service. Every single sandwich is made, by hand, each morning in our kitchen - and if it doesn’t sell that day, we dispose of it that night – it’s that simple.
Our second shop opened in Wokingham in June 2005 and this time it was bigger and … scarier!! Much more to do, much more to organise, but we were steadfast that we would never compromise our quality or service. brown bag sources the freshest, best quality ingredients, locally where possible, and we continue to develop our range with the help of our regular customers.
Our next venture was a coffee shop in the Nuffield Health Club in Wokingham and Farnborough. This partnership has seen us concentrate on healthy lunches, snacks and a range of power smoothies and juices designed in collaboration with personal trainers to meet the needs of those working out.
Our next shop is based in Woodley town centre and opened in February 2012. This was a challenging but exciting time for brown bag as we strived to expand the business. We aim to apply the same philosophy as we already have in our other stores and we look forward to welcoming you to Woodley in the near future.
Following our success within Woodley town centre, we have opened another site within the Oakwood Centre, Woodley, working in collaboration with Woodley Town Council. As well as providing our tasty menu and great coffee we now also serve a hot breakfast as well as a jacket potato range at the Oakwood Centre. We have a large outside seating area where our customers can relax.
The Oakwood Centre provides room hire for private and business functions within their range of spacious rooms. Please visit their website for more information. http://www.woodley.gov.uk/the-oakwood-centre.aspx
brown bag delivers is also growing quickly – providing buffets and sandwich platters to a wide range of small and large businesses including Intersurgical, Wokingham Council and daily deliveries to Windsor Castle.
We are proud of what we have developed at brown bag, please let us know if you have any ideas or favourites you’d like to see and keep giving us your feedback.
Above all . . . don’t forget to visit!
See you soon.
