RHODE Island coffee shop has reopened after £150,000 refurbishment project.

The cafe, which has been in Golden Square's Old Fish Market since 2002, has been completely transformed over the past fortnight with an updated design and new furniture.

Samantha Wasson, assistant operations manager, said: "Our new look store hasn't lost it's homely feel, where you can relax and read a book from our even larger 'book exchange' library.

"It's more spacious so all your friends, family and study pals can gather and make use of our community table or have a quiet corner behind our art installation, Mug Wall.

"In my seven years as store manager at Rhode Island Coffee this has been a really special moment seeing our customers flood back in with pride, order 'the usual' and choose their new favourite spot."
