In the midst of the city of London there is an artisan café, named Iris &June, they are not just known for their mind-blowing menu and addicting coffee, but what made them stand out is a classic tabloid they printed out as a thank you note for their customers. They undertook this publication to mark the café turning one. The owners considered it to be a special way to appreciate the local crowd and acquaintances who has always been extremely supportive. The Café also symbolises the celebration of living, culture and art.
They opened in April 2014 with a mouth-watering menu, addictive coffee and excellent customer service, and the owners want the café to stand out as a symbol of culture in years to come. They also see the publication as a medium to express their stand on various issues, and what makes them stand out from a normal coffee shop. They also have some of their suppliers featured in the magazine talking about the market and the difficulties in survival amidst all the competition without any compromise on the quality of service.
The restaurant, which is named after two of owner’s grandmother’s also feature special delicacies made on closely guarded family recipes. The owners say how they have regular customers who come there only to savour those and sometimes it becomes really difficult to manage the rush during peek hours and also during the holiday season. They distributed the copies of tabloids at the London Coffee festival and also at St James and Victoria stations. They are also hoping to extend the distribution to offices nearby and the neighbouring homes.
