Café Max owner Zelia Alves Figueira will be among the first to return to its premises in Brixton Station Road arches.

Zelia, with husband Joao Jose and daughter Nicole, said they were delighted to be back and looking forward to welcoming their loyal customers.

Zela said: “Nicole has done a lot of the thinking about the interior design. I don’t know what I’d do without her. It’s been a whole family activity.”

After the refit, they are hoping to be open again for business by mid-April.

Community engagement manager Binki Taylor said: “Each business will have its own relaunch with the Rec hosting a welcome back celebration at the end of May.”
