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
