AN Angus cafe has been recognised as the finest in the country at an awards ceremony.
The family-run Franco’s, in Carnoustie, took home the prize for best cafe at the Business Awards Scotland 2016, which was held in Glasgow last night.
Steven Franco, general manager, who collected the award with a number of staff members, today told the Tele that he was “ecstatic” at the High Street cafe scooping the silverware.
He said: “It is really good, particularly because we are just a small business in a small town.
“It is really something special for us to win the award.
“When we found out we had won the Best in Scotland award, one of the waitresses started crying — we were wondering if it was all really happening.
The cafe’s staff and customers were applauded by the owners in a Facebook post immediately after the ceremony.
It read: “Thank you again to everyone who voted for us, our wonderful customers and devoted staff — we could not have done it without you.”
