The café will be re-opening for take-away food and drink from next Monday, July 20th!
There will be sanitiser for customers at the entrance and exit, and we have all the safety requirements covered.
We will be open weekdays from approximately 9am-1pm and there will be a one way system operating with 2m gaps for queuing, so in from the car park, out into the play park. Card payments only.
We’ve kept our prices the same, but there will be a 10p surcharge on takeaway cups so please bring your own if you can. As there will only be one member of staff and a limited menu to begin with, please be patient and maintain social distancing inside the café.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Thanks, Alan & the café team

We have a small Community Library in the L A Cafe, where you can donate any books you like and don’t need. Likewise, borrow from it anything you want to. This is a combination of what used to be called the Transition Library (books with a green/spiritual/political/social slant), and the L A Cafe’s collection of novels.

Café therapy room:

From Monday 16th April, holistic therapist Sarah Britton will be offering the relaxing therapy of Reflexology. Reflexology is a natural, non-invasive therapy that helps to restore balance and harmony. It deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all parts of the body. By working on these areas reflexology helps to relieve stress and tension; improve blood supply and promote the unblocking of nerve impulses and helps to restore balance naturally.

Sarah will be here every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from 10.00 until 1:30 pm (term time only) offering 1/2 hour mini treatments (£20) and 1-hour full treatments (£35). You can either pop in on the day for an appointment or, if you prefer to book in advance to guarantee your appointment, then you can book online here.

For any questions, call Sarah on 07985 931131 or email:

We source our white and granary bread from Weston-Super-Mare based Winnie’s Bakery, and serve it with our sandwiches, toasties and soups.  Winnie is the name of the natural ferment that is used in the baking process and combined with wild yeast and sea salt, the loaf is chemical-free!
