#beatonsbod: Alex - our House Cat at Blandford

Beatons Bod:  Alex

What's your role and what do you like best about your job?
My name's Alex and I am a waitress at Beatons in Blandford. I find the most enjoyable aspect of working here is getting to know customers and being friendly and chatty with the regulars. I think this is the best aspect of my job because I am able to learn so much about the local area from born and bred people!

What's you’re favorite drink or edible from our menu?
My classic drink is either the Authentic Chai or a gingerbread soy latte. Very Christmassy! My favourite edible is a teacake with the tart blackcurrant jam., a perfect match.

And how about your favourite book from our shelves?
I love all the art books we have in recently like the Drawing is Magic book or how to be a wallflower. Not only are they pretty books to visually enjoy but also inspire adults and children to get arty and crafty!

Which of the ways we like to go about things at Beatons means most to you and why?
I think the most important aspect of Beatons is the goal to make each individual customer feel special before they leave. Also the fact that all the food and drinks are made to a very high standard and each staff members works their hardest to impress and delight our customers.

If you were an animal, bird or creeping creature what would you be and why?
I would love to be a house cat, so I can be Queen of the House. (haha!)

What - outside work - makes your skin tingle? It could be a dream, activity (printable!) or piece of music!
I am a big fan of yoga and longboarding at the beach. Rain or shine, however I especially love it when it's stormy.
