It’s in another location in Cardiff. But this new branch is in one of Cardiff’s most interesting locations. The Grade II listed Victorian heritage building The Maltings, which offers services to local businesses, is the place. Kin & Ilk have nestled into an open space in the building as if it was meant to be. This new expansion is raising a few eyebrows. But Kin & Ilk is a much-needed addition to an already thriving centre.
This is the fifth branch of the iconic coffee shop chain, which launched in Cardiff in 2016. It’s a solid, Cardiff business. It proudly presents its identity as an independent Welsh coffee shop operator. Its expansion effort is centred on Cardiff till date. It proudly uses locally sourced food and drinks. In addition to the coffee shop, it presents a bar space. It is the focal point in The Maltings for food and drink as well as functions and events. You can enjoy the true Welsh hospitality in this unique venue.
With Kin & Ilk as the focal refreshment point in The Maltings, this will be the site where many a business deal will be forged. This provides a space where the local business community can get together in a comfortable and homely atmosphere. For an independent Welsh coffee shop operator, it’s risen to become a focal point for local business in Cardiff. Even if you’re not a business person, you can still enjoy the results of this recent expansion. Enjoy good coffee and local hospitality in an authentic Welsh atmosphere
Kin & Ilk, the independent Welsh Coffee Shop Operator has never done business the usual way. Instead of stepping into an especially created space, it has created a space of its own in this latest expansion. The space between the two arms of the building was a disused courtyard. It has created a space of its own and the specially created mezzanine floor above provides an extension of that space. Where there was nothing, there is now life and buzz and activity. May the expansion continue to grow and may this independent Welsh coffee shop operator continue to make Cardiff proud.
