More than just a cafe.

Café on the Park is not just a café it’s also a social enterprise. We rely on our amazing participants and volunteers to keep the wheels in motion. We do all the cooking on site so we can provide fresh, nutritious, affordable food for the community. Every time you come into the café you are not only supporting your local café you are also supporting the people that live in your community. We provide training for people wanting to re-enter the work force but we also provide people a sense of belonging and the opportunity to  rebuild their confidence through social engagement. We do more than just hand your coffee to you. We provide a space for people of all ages and abilities to learn, be part of team and experience  that social inclusion which  sometimes we lack in our lives.
