A Montrose businessman has opened the doors of the next branch in his successful cafe chain this week.
Dennis Laidlaw (34), owner of the Montrose-based Madison Cafe & Bistro has taken on a new challenge in Carnoustie.
Dennis started running the cafe on Montrose High Street four years ago and then branched out to the cafe at the local sports centre 18 months ago. Now he is the new owner of the seafront beach café in Carnoustie’s leisure centre.
Angus Council’s vice-convener of communities, Councillor Jeanette Gaul, handed over the keys to the Carnoustie cafe to Dennis on Monday (July 14).
Councillor Gaul said: “I’m delighted to see the café has opened on time and within budget. The café will provide much needed additional leisure space and café facilities for families visiting the playpark, walkers, cyclists, and tourists to the area.”
Dennis said: “My team and I would like to thank Angus Council for the opportunity to fulfil the expectations of the people of Carnoustie and surrounding areas.
“We strive to provide the finest local ingredients where possible and we will endeavour to use Fair Trade products, such as our Triple Certified Coffee Bean.
“Having already spent a few weeks in Carnoustie, I have met some terrific people who were all wishing us all the best.”
