The Coffee Shop at Cottenham Community Centre

Back to Activities

A welcoming place in the heart of Cottenham where anybody can spend time, socialise and enjoy delicious and great value drinks, snacks and light meals. Volunteers are always warmly received too!

This activity is good for wellbeing because

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

“It’s such a friendly café and a focal point for the village.”

“Volunteering (at The Coffee Shop) is good for my wellbeing and mental health.”


What to expect

Based in a converted Methodist Chapel, the Coffee Shop is a wonderful space. Facilities include a fully equipped modern kitchen including a first class coffee machine offering a full range of coffees; a children’s play area with toys and books; an information centre and a variety of seating including comfortable sofas. Free wifi is also provided.

The Coffee Shop is mainly staffed by volunteers with one paid member of staff present at all times. The food is prepared on site, and the food and cakes are made to a high standard whilst offering good value.

If you would like to volunteer at the Coffee Shop, ask at the counter or give them a call – they’d be delighted to hear from you. Training will be provided.
