A busy café is hoping to keep more customers happy after completing a "desperately needed" expansion.

Angel Café in Diss had been forced to turn away customers due to running out of seating space.

But from today (March 14) it will be able to accommodate 20 more people at its Baldry's Yard site in Fair Green.

Manager Maria Reavell said: "We are really excited to have expanded. We were getting so busy it was something that was desperately needed - it has been a long time coming.

The current management took over the café in December 2021 and has grown in success since.

Ms Reavell added: "It has gone insane since taking it on. We are also taking on another full-time member of staff as well due to the demand.

"Considering the difficult times we are in for many businesses, we have been very lucky to have so many loyal customers."

Angel Café is open Tuesday to Sunday between 9am and 3pm.
