Who’s that Customer? Jon Mountjoy.

September 28, 2009


Jon Mountjoy has been a friend of Centotre since 2007.

He’s lived in South Africa, the Netherlands, and now resides permanently in Edinburgh.  

Jon is a true global citizen who tends to work Californian hours, as his work life is centred around a thriving San Francisco-based company.  He often travels the world, but is kind enough to send us postcards.

He also loves his food and coffee and makes no secret of his love for our double macchiato and smoked salmon with scrambled eggs breakfasts. (The consummate multi-tasker he can often be seen in a booth with a fork in one hand, while running his business via an ever-open Apple MacBook Pro, on our super-fast broadband wi-fi.

When work is done and on the odd weekend off, Jon has been know to diligently explore Victor’s wine list, and such is his enthusiasm that he has on occasion been treated to a private tasting of some of Victor’s super-special wines.

A stalwart of Edinburgh Coffee Morning, (#EdCM) the weekly gathering of the great, the good and not so good of Web 2.0 in the city, Jon is always in demand from attendees for his insights, discoveries and enthusiasms for all things social media.

A power-user of Twitter, Quicksilver and all things OS X, Jon is also a keen photographer and student of the finer things in life, which is (we hope) why he’s such a fan of Centotre.

And, we hasten to add, why we’re such fans of him.

Edinburgh Coffee Mornings

Coffee morning @ Centotre

Food, coffee, computers, mobiles & minds! For over two years now the digital & creative community in Edinburgh has been calling Centotre home for their weekly Friday coffee mornings.

We are proud to support their meets and look forward to it just about as much as they do! We’ve seen this coffee morning grow from a booth to almost half the restaurant! Up early with smiles on their faces, it’s the perfect way to head into the weekend.

We want to extend a big thank you to h and all of the Edinburgh Coffee Morning members for all they do for us and for choosing Centotre to be their gathering place.

We are more than happy to play host to any groups – mornings, evenings or otherwise. If you think Centotre might be the place for you, just ask a member of staff or just show up! During busier times it might be better to book (or if you would like to reserve the downstairs room) and we will do all we can to make sure your catered for.

If you’re interested in checking out the Creative & Digital coffee morning, everyone is welcome! It’s from 8a.m on, every Friday morning at Centotre.
