Kirkcaldy’s growing cafe culture could soon welcome another new name to the town centre.

The company which has taken over the building left empty by Debenhams’ closure has applied to include a cafe in its plans.

Concessions store, 1517, has put its branding on the front of the building and large posters saying it is coming soon to the High Street.

It will be its second store in Scotland after opening initially in Ayr.

The 1517 model brings together a host of national and local names under one roof.

It wants to put a cafe at the front of the building which will serve hot drinks, cakes and hot snack food such as toasted paninis.

IT would be able to accommodate 30 people.
