We welcome ideas for events that bring the community together. There will be afternoons and mornings where certain community groups will benefit from reduced prices and special offers.
We take our coffee very seriously. And it's not just about the coffee. We will serve a range of amazing teas, hot chocolate, milkshakes and other drinks too. Pop in for your morning coffee or afternoon cuppa or a delicious bacon or sausage bap at the weekend! Or come and escape the hustle and bustle of life and sit on the patio overlooking the park with a paper and flat White.
We aim to ensure that the drinks that we provide are ethically sourced and traded. That's really important to us as a community café. We will offer decaffeinated, freshly ground coffee and a wide range of teas for you to choose from and all at a reasonable price.
A wide range of homemade cakes will be available as well as toasted tea cakes, paninis, homemade soup and filled Jacket potatoes and other goodies! And all this within walking distance of most homes in Beggarwood and Hatch Warren.
