FATHER’S Day saw the closure of Mister Everett’s Sweet Shop on the corner of Abbeygate Street and Angel Hill, in Bury St Edmunds .

The shop, which opened in 2009, closed its doors on June 19, but the very next day partners Andreas Bonney, Ali Elliott and Laura Stewart – pictured – began making changes in preparation for the opening of their coffee house, Really Rather Good.

With an Italian La Spaziale coffee machine and a German Mahlkönig coffee grinder, the new owners are confident that the shop will prove a hit when it opens in mid July, with a salad bar, homemade cakes and sandwiches made to order.

Customers will also be able to select fruits for smoothies and choose how dark to have a hot chocolate.
