The Spoon & Unity Social Kitchen

Coronavirus Update

The staff at the Spoon Café and the Unity Social Kitchen wanted to release this clear statement regarding the current threat of Coronavirus facing our community. We believe in transparency and wanted to keep you informed of the measures we are taking to ensure the health and safety of our staff, volunteers and guests.
Our priority is that we remain open and available to provide to the community.
We are closely monitoring staff and volunteers and ensuring their welfare is paramount.
All staff are aware of the standards required within the restaurant and are undertaking the following tasks to ensure complete sanitation;

• Tables, chairs & menus are cleaned with sanitiser before and after every customer
• Extra antibacterial hand soap is available in bathrooms
• Bathrooms are being cleaned & sanitised every hour (surfaces, taps, toilet area, all door handles, hand dryers)
• Staff are washing their hands frequently (for 20 seconds min) and have been told not to touch hair or face – if they do so, they are to wash their hands immediately. Serving surfaces and serving trays are also cleaned hourly with sanitiser.

The Spoon Café and Unity Social Kitchen remains open and we will continue to support those who need it. As the situation changes we may need to change the way we operate however at the core our focus will always be around supporting the community.

We would also like to kindly ask that you think of others before visiting us;
• If you are experiencing any symptoms or are feeling unwell please do not attend.
• Please, wash your hands upon entering and before eating your meal.
• Please take any precautions you feel necessary when visiting

If you would like to speak to someone about this please get in touch!

We Serve More Than Just Food

We hope you enjoy our fresh food, friendly service and comfortable environment here in the Merchant City. Enjoy a range of breakfast lunch and snack options, mouth-watering smoothies or some irresistible home baking to takeaway or sit and savour.

But did you know, we are more than just a café……….

Spoon Cafes are social enterprise sit in and taking away cafes offering external catering services, space hire for public and private events. We are proud to be a Social Enterprise. We believe that everyone has the right to be treated equally, to be valued and to be included. But we know that many of our fellow citizens still face exclusion; people with disabilities, mental ill health, or are affected by homelessness and poverty.

Pay It Forward

We host a ‘Pay it Forward’ scheme so, when you spend at the Spoon, you help us to provide food, support and a warm welcome to those who need it, including individuals or families affected by homelessness and poverty. You also help us to provide work experience and training in a supported environment to people who may be vulnerable or otherwise face exclusion or barriers to employment.

The scheme is increasingly offering opportunities to ‘pay forward’ acts of kindness in new and creative ways. Pop in to find out more!

All welcome!

I belong… at work

“I have been at Spoon for almost 2 years and in that time I have learned lots of new skills.  I help to prepare fillings for the deli, I like to make soup, cakes and other things and I know how to stock up the fridge!

I have also learned about Health & Safety and Food Hygiene, I can do lots on the computer and I have achieved my ASDAN Award on Work Awareness.  I really enjoy my time here and I have met lots of new friends.”
