Costa Coffee temporarily shut all of its 2,700 stores on March 23 due to coronavirus, even though it was allowed to stay open for takeaway orders.
Over the past month, the coffee chain has kept some stores inside hospitals open to serve NHS staff.
But thanks to a "fantastic response from team members & customers", the chain is now increasing the number of open branches to 33 in total, it said yesterday.
From today (May 2), 19 of the branches will be open for delivery, while 14 will be drive-thru only.
We've created a list of all the stores that are opening below. To find which one is nearest to you, use Costa's branch locator tool.
