Broughty ‘institution’ changes hands

A BROUGHTY Ferry institution has come under new management.

Brambles in Brook Street was opened in 1985 by the Millers and has been run by them ever since.

Now they feel it is time to pass the torch on to someone else, and so new owners Martin and Nicky Cannon have taken on the business with their son, Philip.

The Millers do not think the family feeling of the coffee shop will change as a result.

Martin, originally from Yorkshire, was previously a manager of a property firm, but wife Nicky is from a catering background.

The Cannons gave the restaurant business a stir of the pot last year by running a restaurant at a holiday park.

The family is now getting to know all the regulars and assure them that there will be no deviations from the successful recipe.

Martin said: “We are going to refurbish - just refreshing the place, really - and look at what’s popular and what isn’t, so the basic concept will not change.”
