Illy Café, the coffeehouse chain run by the Italian brand, is to open a new unit at the Westfield shopping centre in Shepherd’s Bush.

The company opens 300sq ft mall kiosk this weekend in the development’s south precinct, next to fashion retailer Hugo Boss.

The opening comes as the company plans to up its presence in the UK market and plans to open a further London site at the One New Change office and retail development near St Paul’s.

Espressamente illy cafés can be found in over 200 locations in 32 countries.
