Michelin-starred chef Frances Atkins is to open her new Paradise Cafe at Daleside Nurseries in Killinghall this month.
The cafe, run by Ms Atkins, chef Roger Olive and front of house manager John Tullett, will be open six days a week from 9am until 5pm. It will be closed on Mondays.
The trio, who have all worked together for 20 years, have been operating out of a wagon at the garden centre for the last 18 months.
The wagon has now finished trading as attention turns to the new venture.
A post on the Paradise Cafe Facebook page said:
“It has taken longer than we anticipated to finish the cafe given the various curveballs we have all been thrown in the last two years.
“From today we are using all our time to be fully prepared for our opening date.”

The post added:
“To begin with, Friday evening will be open for a series of special dinners, these will be bookings only and there will be more information coming shortly.
“We look forward to progressing our opening times and our takeaway business in the future as we develop.”
