Kinross-based coffee shop brand, Heaven Scent has just opened a third outlet at Dunfermline’s Carnegie Library and Galleries.
Heaven Scent was awarded the contract by Fife Cultural Trust, which aims to provide creative, entertaining and learning experiences, through partnerships and in its museums, galleries, libraries and theatres.
The mezzanine cafe, which is part of the major Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries development, boasts stunning views over the landscaped garden to Dunfermline Abbey and the Heritage Quarter of the town.
The spectacular £12.4m award-winning new building has been designed by Richard Murphy Architects and has already won the EAA Building of the Year award. It links superbly with the world’s first Carnegie Library and houses a new museum, exhibition galleries, local history reading room and new children’s library.
Heaven Scent owner, Andrew Scott said, “We are beyond thrilled to take Heaven Scent to Dunfermline in such a stunning venue. We’ve long had customers that travel regularly from Dunfermline to Milnathort for our barista-made coffees, milkshakes and delicious menu.
'In a world where town centres have become ever more homogenised by bland international retail and catering outlets, Heaven Scent’s character and success stands out.
'Our customers seek us out because they know Heaven Scent’s personality is ingrained through its outstanding service, fabulous food and drink and personal approach. We’re really looking forward to developing our menu for both locals and visitors to Dunfermline.”
Kirsty Keay, Commercial Director at Fife Cultural Trust, said, “The Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries is a massively exciting project and one that the people of Dunfermline have already taken to their hearts.
'We’re delighted to have Heaven Scent on board and recognise the company’s ethos as matching our aims to deliver fantastic service and a great quality product. We’re confident that Heaven Scent at Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries will really add to Dunfermline’s food scene and be at the heart of the town’s cultural quarter.”
The new Dunfermline opening adds a third outlet to the original Heaven Scent coffee shop in the Perthshire village of Milnathort and the restaurant at Knockhill Racing Circuit.
Heaven Scent has won a string of awards including independent Coffee Shop of the year, Excellence in Business Innovation from Perthshire Chamber of Commerce, VisitScotland’s Taste Our Best accreditation and TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence for four years in a row.
