Sexy Coffee Ltd was granted an on and off sales premises licence to sell alcohol at last week’s licensing board after it initially was operating with an occasional licence.

The meeting heard the off sales permission was for gift packages only. Councillor Alex Wilson, SNP, asked what is “sexy” about the coffee. The agent replied: “The ambience of the premises is designed to be of a classy nature.”

The coffee shop sitting on the corner of Union Street and Gordon Street near Central Station is open from 6.30am to 10pm Monday to Thursday and until midnight on Friday and Saturday and from 7am to 10pm on Sunday.
