About our Cafe
Our passionate volunteers run an on-site cafe for all the community. A place to meet, make friends, work, eat cake and drink proper coffee. A place where everyone is welcome. We have an ethos that’s as wholesome as the delicious, freshly prepared food that we serve. Every penny we make over and above the running costs of the cafe is reinvested into our Youth Programme.
On evenings and weekends the space is transformed into a Youth Café run by young people for young people. We also use the space to run various youth related activities such as cooking/baking classes during school holidays.
We serve amazing food all day long. And we've got something for everyone. We offer a perfectly formed and delicious daily menu with changing specials to keep things nice and fresh, and we pour a bit of passion into everything we serve - from our daily selection of lunches to our freshly ground coffees and locally made cakes. Why not pop in and see what what's on the menu? It's always seasonal, always fresh - and always made at ark. We also offer a takeout option too!
In October 2018 we received top marks 5 out of 5 stars from the Food Standards Agency for hygiene.
We reckon love and bright colours make a great inviting space – so we have lots of it. We offer our café space free of charge to not-for-profit groups to meet and form; the kind of groups that make the community stronger and people happier.
So if you have an idea and need free meeting space, and the moral support to try it out – get in-touch! We also offer free hot-desking facilities for people using our cafe with connection to our high-speed Wi-Fi.
If you are using our meeting rooms, we also offer refreshments and catering services brought directly to your room.
We can cater for up to 80 people and offer a range of options. Please contact us directly to discuss your requirements.
