A familar face from the Morecambe cafe trade has started a new business.

Lee Robinson has left Rita’s Cafe to set up his own coffee lounge and snack bar on Westgate.

Lee worked in Rita’s on Marine Road for 17 years but has now decided to move on to a new venture alongside his wife Jo.

“I fancied doing something myself, a bit of a change,” said Lee.

Jo-n-Lees has opened on Westgate Precinct and Lee said he’s found it very different to working on the seafront.

“It’s a bit quieter here but I’m getting used to it,” he said.

“The people of Westgate have been brilliant.”
