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 but. 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.”
