Cafe Nescafé is a band owned by Nestlé, along with the rest of the Nescafé range. Nestlé used to franchise the 'Cafe Nescafe' brand as a coffee shop concession.
It was also usually available in the filling station, the start of an increasing trend for snacks to be made available there.
One particular unit at Scotch Corner soldiered on for a long time after Granada left the industry.
Nescafé Alegria is a coffee machine brand which is currently at two motorway locations. At Cobham, it replaced a former Starbucks on the Go machine due to WHSmith's new partnership with Nescafé. Extra then also rolled out the machines to all of their sites during 2018/2019.
It is the cheapest coffee on the motorway network with a regular cup costing £1.10. Another brand used by Nescafé is Nescafé & Go, which used to be located within a few Bonjour stores at Total filling stations.
