Graphic designer by day, waiter by night. This is where Daniel Holland, owner of Yourstruly, was a year ago. For six years, the idea of getting involved in coffee, had been hovering at the back of his mind. Fed up with living like a “drone” as he says, he decided to turn his dream into a reality. He quit his day job and began the hunt to find a small space where he could serve coffee, ideally through a hatch. He admits that he was optimistic but hugely naïve and had to go back to the drawing board a number of times. He was turned down twelve times before Lady Luck gave him a break with a spot on Long Street. Daniel’s family got involved with the renovations and special mention should go to his dad who completed all the woodwork. The rest, as they say, is history.
