Owners Bill and Paul West told The Press and Journal in a statement: “It makes sense to open a cafe in one of the busiest parts of town.

“More businesses are bringing staff back to the office meaning we’re seeing an increase in commuters through the centre, so it makes sense to open a cafe in one of the busiest parts of town.

“We are big fans of cafe culture and want to move away from the fast-paced American style chains and instead offer an experience more in-line with the coffee houses of 50s Britain and continental Europe.”

CASC – an acronym for cigars, ale, Scotch and coffee – launched in December 2013 and offers premium cigars, craft beer, scotch whisky and artisan coffee.

It’s also a Gold Standard Havana Cigar Specialist, with one of the largest selections of non-Cuban cigars in the country.
