Come and have a cuppa and a chat in your local community café, Café Siena, where a variety of real coffee, and delicious home made cakes, are offered all year round.
Recently awarded 5 stars for food and hygiene, we offer a friendly and welcoming space for everyone to come and relax, enjoy some quality refreshments at very reasonable prices, and meet old friends and make new ones. See our opening times and menu here.
Café Siena is not like other café’s…apart from being situated in the heart of the community…we aim to:
- Create an environment which is welcome to those who may feel isolated and lonely, especially older people
- Enable adults with learning disabilities gain work skills, mostly by waitressing and washing up. Adults with learning disabilities can also be trained in food preparation and hygiene.
Café Siena is a spacious place where young and old can engage with each other in a friendly setting, leading to greater understanding across generations and abilities. There is a play corner for toddlers, and we plan to develop it into a community hub where exhibitions by local artists and groups are regularly displayed. From time to time we hope to offer lunch-time concerts and are welcome to suggestions from any community group as to how to help it better serve our locality.
The café is run by our enthusiastic manager, Karen, and a band of willing volunteers. If you would be interested in joining this happy and committed team, and have a few hours spare to volunteer, do get in touch via email.
