Quality food and drink in a relaxed environment

We serve food from 11am – 3pm. Our all new menu caters for vegans, vegetarians and non-vegetarians. All of our food is freshly prepared on the premises, and we take pride in ensuring it is made to the highest quality.

Live music and events

We offer a high quality program of original live music across all genres – from national and international touring acts to developing our local scene. The venue is intimate but has a reputation for lively and respectful crowds and is one of the best places to enjoy live entertainment in the area. We also host a wide range of other arts, culture and social events.

A community project

We are a not-for-profit. We provide work experience, training and youth work support to young people aged 16-25. Our cafe is staffed by young volunteers, giving them the chance to develop job skills and improve their prospects. It works too – over 60% of our volunteers go on to secure paid employment. We also host a daily drop in for children aged 13-18 and work with a vast array of community groups to address social issues, serving as a springboard for community development.
