Bruce and Luke’s began in 2011 when Bruce Brown and Luke Jackson teamed up to run “Foxes Cafe Lounge” in the centre of Carlisle. Since then the cafe generated popularity and acclaim becoming a staple of Carlisle’s food and coffee scene.
Then in 2014 we branched out to set up our own coffee roastery, this was born out of our shared love of awesome speciality coffee. The first Bruce and Luke’s coffee shop opened it’s doors in 2014 serving our own brand of awesome coffee, alongside our now famous donuts. The vision for our stores was simple; create a fun vibrant environment that serves amazing coffee and donuts. Our team has grown and is now full of enthusiastic staff that simply love what they do. From bakers, baristas and coffee roasters we are massively proud of what our team has achieved so far.
For our coffee, its a gift we love to share. Branching out into wholesale has given us a fantastic platform to share a product that we love to make. We supply our coffee far and wide to cafe owners and businesses over the UK. Outstanding coffee is something that has enriched our lives, so we work with cafes that we supply on training their baristas to make sure every cup is perfect.
We are still always on the go, flat white in one hand and a dream in the other. We are continuing to open more stores, roast awesome coffee and bake amazing donuts. Our adventure is still just beginning and we can’t wait to see where it ends.
