Charlotte's Corner is brand new to Blackburn South, entering the shopping strip there as the only cafe of its kind. Considering they've only just opened their doors, the folk at CC have done an ok job. The milk in the coffee itself was smooth and well textured, but could have been slightly stronger to really win me over. I asked for the second to be made strong but unfortunately it came out just the same. The takeaways are in plain cups with their own branding, but I forgot to find out which beans they use.
The owners are probably still ironing out some opening jitters, with some staff not really sure how to approach customers, not knowing much about the menu and general friendliness lacking. The visual landscape of the place is pretty appealing, with gorgeous red brick walls and wooden benches for the serving area. They could do with some good heating to combat the particularly cold days we've been getting, but this could also be attributed to its early days of existence.
Whilst my initial review may not sound all that inspiring, I feel that Charlotte's Corner has a lot of potential. I'm looking forward to giving them some time to get settled and know their clientele and hopefully can review it again with much more positivity. Blackburn South could really benefit from a well run cafe. My suggestion would be to give it a go and keep in mind that they've just started, but it doesn't manage to make it to the list of regular stops yet.
