ABOUT COLJAN (CJ's for short)
COLJAN Cafe, Bar and Restaurant @ 11 West Street is the dream and ambition of Nathan, Michelle and family. Born from their love of food and hospitality and with the support of family COLJAN, named after Nathan’s parents Colin (COL) and his late mother Janice (JAN) who have provided significant support to help them realise their dream and ambition.
From an early age, Nathan’s love of food and ambition to own a cafe and restaurant helped become a reality when he met and married his wife and soul mate Michelle. The pair, having blown in from the midlands, have rapidly established themselves within the community and provide a warm, friendly and welcoming atmosphere where everyone is welcome and customers can relax and enjoy the pleasures of great food at an affordable price.
Sourcing many of our ingredients locally, we aim to provide produce from sustainable and ethical sources. Our food will always be an eclectic mix of fresh and flavoursome food. During the day, a rich offering for breakfast, Bruch and dedicated lunch offerings are available to enjoy. During evening service, Nathan, Michelle and their Chef Chris, offer a 4-4-4 menu. This provides an offering of 4 starters, 4 mains and 4 desserts which normally change every 4-6 weeks, providing customers sufficient choice, yet a regular rotation of flavours in line with the seasons as and when ingredients are at their best. The aim is always to be able to provide great produce at a great and affordable price. We also enjoy catering for our smaller dinners and provide regular specials, smaller portions and can within reason accommodate for taste and allergens through adapting our menu to suit.
COLJAN’s uniqueness is really the family and extended team; naturally energetic; all passionate about the food and service we deliver to every customer and respectful of every competing organisation. We will try our hardest to be the defining reason for the local community and travellers, to be the destination location as the best place to eat, tarry awhile and move on greatly refreshed with their next visit planned in our calendars. We aim to celebrate their return visits with them over and over again each time with the very best in service.
