As well as more cafés open for dine-ins, an additional 17 branches will also open up for takeaway only.
When visiting branches, customers will get to enjoy new low prices.
The retailer has passed on the savings of the hospitality VAT cuts which means shoppers will get to enjoy discounted items every day.
