The cafe won last best cafe and best restaurant last year and is hoping for another double award.

Nonna’s has grown from nothing to be a social hub where people can come and enjoy the company of one’s they love while appreciating delicious food.

Back when owning and running a restaurant was a mere pipe dream, owner Damien stumbled across a recently closed down bakery in Woburn Sands.

He saw the potential in the building to be transformed into a bustling restaurant where people can enjoy each others company and high class food.

Damien worked tirelessly with his family and friends to renovate this classic building into a wonderful restaurant you see today.

He restored the building and added a beautiful summer terrace and convenicne car park. The interior was completey revamped and kitchen upgraded.

Damien said: “Three-quarters of the way through this mission I had jumped first into was probably the hardest moment in my life.

“We had run out of money, my business partner (head chef) left and I wasnt sure Nonna’s would become a reality...But my passion for food kept me going.

“After many hours of labour and hard work Nonna’s was ready for opening night. Since the successful opening I have not looked back.

“We have gone from strength to strength to become a fixture of the Woburn Sands community.”

Damien’s philosophy is to never give up and always provide quality.
