Kenilworth coffee shop reveals makeover for outdoor seating area

A Kenilworth coffee shop has given its outdoor seating area a complete makeover in time for the new year.
Coffee on the Corner, which first opened its doors in November 2019, has installed a full roof cover to allow customers to sit outside no matter the weather.
And the new area is certainly eye-catching as it is completely pink.
The Warwick Road cafe first opened an outdoor seating area in July 2020 as customers were allowed to 'eat in' again after the first national lockdown.
But owners Imogen Edwards, Sam Paine, Penny Ilsley have had plans to get it covered for a while.
"We wanted to put a roof cover on the garden for a while, to make it more usable all year round and a nice place for dog walkers to sit whatever the weather," said Imogen.
"We used this project as an opportunity to give it a full makeover and create a more unique space than what we already had, so the 'pink alley' vision came to life!"
Having used a contractor to put up the roof, the Coffee on the Corner team spent two weeks bringing the space to life with lights, flowers, paint and new furniture.
Imogen said they wanted a "striking" colour to create a different feel to the cafe's inside space.
"As many may have noticed our signature colour inside is orange and we wanted to make the garden something different, a total contrast and a bright cheerful place to be," she added.
"We went for a striking pink colour for a wow factor when you step outside, and by the reaction that has definitely been achieved.
"We are thrilled with the outcome and really look forward to seeing customers use it over the spring and summer time.
"We have had a lovely reaction from customers and many have been excited to sit out there."
