Cara Coffee

Back to Activities

'Cara' means friend, and a friendly welcome is what you'll get at Cara Coffee. This café is a social enterprise run by Great Shelford Free Church and local youth charity, Romsey Mill.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • a smile and a chat in a friendly café can give you a boost;
  • you’ll be supporting the local community – all profits go to charity;
  • it is a great place to meet friends, or have a moment to yourself.

“This café is a real gem! My first time visiting and it was an absolute delight. On a sunny day it was lovely to sit in the large back garden – there are also seats inside and on the front terrace. I will definitely be back, keep up the good work!” Trip Advisor Review

What to expect

Cara Coffee is a social enterprise that provides good coffee whilst doing good too. All profits go to local youth & family charity, Romsey Mill. It is mostly staffed by a team of volunteers and young people on work placement learning about the hospitality industry, however the service you will receive is caring and efficient.

There’s a daily menu of food, drinks and snacks including gluten and dairy-free options, freshly made coffee and sweet treats. Everything at Cara Coffee is  reasonably priced, and they do their best to source local and ethical produce.

You can sit in the cosy café or there is covered seating outside, front and back.

Cara Coffee is open Tuesday to Saturday, but check the Facebook link for details of times.

If you would like to volunteer at Cara Coffee, contact Romsey Mill via the email link above – they’d be delighted to hear from you. Training will be provided.
