Retired jockey Eva Moscrop is opening Cortado Espresso Bar on September 15th on Newmarket’s Exeter Road. The first 100 customers will also receive a free coffee!

Serving great coffee in a sleek setting with a racing-inspired touch from owners Eva and Richard Moscrop, Cortado Espresso Bar will open on September 15.

As well as their great coffee, they will also serve freshly made sandwiches, salads and pastries that are delivered each day from the well known Dovecote bakery in Cambridge.

Since hanging up her boots as a jockey and Newmarket resident Eva Moscrop has been looking to do something special and she has designed and built exactly the kind of shop she would want to visit.

Eva says: “I always wanted to get involved in running my own business after I finished riding and felt like Newmarket was my home after working as an apprentice here.

“I thought the town needed a good independent coffee shop with a place to get fresh healthy snacks and drinks. I have worked hard on this and wanted to make a stylish place that makes people feel welcome and relaxed, and have always been inspired by the art deco restaurants of London.”

They open their doors at 6:30am on the 15th of September and are offering the first 100 customers a free coffee!

You can find the shop at 5 Exeter Road, Newmarket or you can follow them on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram
