Community Hub Right in the Middle of Frome's Favourite Park
Its been a very exciting summer since we were able to open this Spring. Located in Victoria Park, Frome, we are offering a variety of delicious food and drinks for everyone to enjoy. We are passionate about building a strong community and fostering connections through great cakes and conversation.
We now have a shelter up with plenty of seating, a loose play pod, a couple of picnic tables to play chess on and dog icecream!!!
We hope to do a big renovation of the space in January 2024 to put in more commercial grade cabinets and flooring so that we can do more works skills training with those that traditionally find the pathway into work challenging. We will need about a £20k budget for the work. If you would like to support us follow the Donate button.
We can't wait to welcome you to our cafe and hope to see you soon! Visit the WHATS ON page to find out what is happening in the park.
Join us on Christmas morning for a bit of celebration from 8.00am to 12.00 pm . The cafe will be open with a bit of festive cheer so you can stretch your legs and join the community for a bit of company
WINTER OPENING HOURS

CLOSE FOR THE SEASON DEC 10TH (with the exception of Christmas Day)
We also aim to source local and sustainable ingredients, as well as providing community education and events. Our goal is to not just serve food, but to serve a sense of community and belonging. Check out our menu here >
Our vision for the community cafe is to create a warm and welcoming space where people from all walks of life can come together, engage in meaningful conversations, and build strong connections with one another.
Our cafe will be a place where everyone feels valued and included, regardless of their background, beliefs or social status. We strive to create an inclusive and equitable community space, where everyone is welcome and treated with respect.
The cafe also includes a strong connection to nature. We believe that being surrounded by greenery and natural elements can have a positive impact on both physical and mental well-being.
We plan to incorporate nature into the cafe design, such as selling plants and herbs, outdoor covered seating and planters. Additionally, we want to involve the community in nature based initiatives and events in collaboration with other local organisations, whether that's green talking cafes, composting workshops, gardening classes, or laps round the park with a cake at the end of it.
