High praise from Sam Cam for ‘inspirational’ cafe’s cappuccino

Samantha Cameron told a city cafe it makes the best cappuccino in Scotland.

Mrs Cameron visited the Spoon Cafe in Glasgow, a project for people with learning and physical difficulties, yesterday morning.

She said it was an “inspirational” visit.

The cafe is a social enterprise in the city centre’s Trongate area, giving young people and adults work experience in a busy catering environment.

Mrs Cameron said: “It is great to visit such an inspirational social enterprise project giving people with learning disabilities real job opportunities right in the heart of the city.

“Definitely the best cappuccino I have had north of the border.”

Dressed in a striking red top and trousers, Mrs Cameron chatted to volunteer Paula Sage over a coffee.

George McSorley, chief executive of Unity Enterprise, which runs the cafe, said everyone was “delighted” by her visit.
