OUR story begins in 1998 in clerkenwell.

Brothers Ben and Hugo started our first cafe in Clerkenwell and we're still open for business in the same location today.

Since then, we've grown our presence on the high street and now operate more than 15 high street stores and station espresso bars. 
While working behind the counter in Clerkenwell, Ben was approached by a customer who wanted to translate the Benugo cafe into an in-house cafe for staff in his office building - a major city bank! Since winning that contract, we now have more than 50 business and industry locations in London, Manchester and Edinburgh.

Our public spaces first took off with our very first museum contract with the V&A in 2004. Now we work with many of the most prestigious museums, galleries and performing arts spaces in the country.

We consider ourselves very lucky to have enjoyed the success that we have, and put a lot of that success down to the quality and dedication of our people.

 It's been a lot of hard work, but always fun. The past 20 years have seen us grow from one little cafe to enjoying the most enviable partnerships with some of the most prestigious institutions and companies in the world. We're looking forward to seeing what the next 20 years hold...
