A FORMER army chef has re-opened his business in Doncaster town centre.
Elected mayor Peter Davies helped officially re-opened Java Deli at its new premises in Priory Walk.
The business is run by James Morris and Paul Himsworth who also own Rodini’s takeaway in Waterdale.
James, who trained as an army chef, has a varied CV having worked at the House of Commons, a top restaurant in the Caribbean and even catered for the cast and crew of Emmerdale. Paul used to run Italian restaurant Santini’s in Copley Road.
James said: “Moving to Priory Walk made good business sense. It’s a good location and opens up more exciting new opportunities.
“We have the same core menu but now also sell hot homemade pies, chilli, and curries. We are also now open in the evenings.
“Java Deli buys all of its produce locally, including fruit and vegetables from Doncaster Markets.”
Mr Davies said: “I am a big supporter of local businesses. Cafes like Java Deli fulfil an important function for workers in the town centre.
“I wish the team all the best with their new premises.”
