CafeLife’s aim is to develop a Community Cafe to provide an environment in which members of the community can meet, which offers affordable, healthy and nutritious snacks and meals. To encourage cross-generational interaction within the community, the cafe is fully accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs alike, and will provide a ‘child friendly’ and safe environment, which also offers free wi-fi for the community. The cafe income supports our core competences, and benefits the community financially by offering affordable, healthy fare.

Events and activities: Come along to our Breastfeeding Support group and meet other mums. Mondays 2pm – 4pm

Edinburgh Community Cafes provide a clean, welcoming and safe environment for different community groups - inclusive spaces. Some cafes will provide this for their immediate community. Others may be a hub for a specific group such as the recovery community in Edinburgh and Lothians. A community cafe usually will address issues around sustainability, community cohesion and inclusion. They may be a revenue earner, or offer training opportunities or be a focal point for centre users and local people. Others may be part of a sports club or a leisure centre, offering refreshments to those taking part in activities or to chaperoning spectators. These cafes may all be very different from one another: however, they often have and work towards similar aims:
  • Friendly and welcoming atmosphere
  • Sociable places preventing isolation
  • Promoting healthier eating and be affordable
  • Fair trade and local (where possible) and ethical
