From Monday 30 July, Café 27 will be opening its doors to a new ‘Meet up Mondays’ group here at Brandon Day Centre.
The Monday sessions, which will run between 10 am and 12 noon, will offer a free cuppa and biscuits to people who feel lonely or isolated, giving them a chance to meet others in a similar situation and make new friends.
Nicole, our Meet up Mondays host and all at Café 27 will provide a warm welcome and a friendly environment.
We are delighted to announce that Café 27 opened its doors to the public on 2 July.
The café, which is open from 9am to 4pm Monday to Friday, takes its name from the Brandon postcode and is the result of much hard work, painting and upcycling of furniture, to create a space that is welcoming, bright and contemporary. It will be managed by Pamela Pickard and Claudette Racine, who were recently appointed as Catering Supervisors on a job-share basis who will be assisted by Catering Assistant, Carl Hampton.
We worked closely with a number of organisations on this project but special thank you’s go to West Suffolk College – the café design is based on an idea presented to us by catering management students, Vinny, for his artistic talents, Alvin for his handiwork, and of course, our day care customers for their patience and understanding whilst the work took place.
The café, has super-fast wi-fi for those wanting a quiet space to work and includes an outdoor seating area and kiddies corner. It will also be a weekly ‘Meet Up Monday’ venue from Monday 30 July between 10am and 12noon for those people who are on their own to come and have a cuppa and meet others in the same situation.
Visitors using the café can enjoy a range of savoury snacks, delicious homemade cakes, real coffee made by our barista-trained team, as well as a range of teas and soft drinks.
We also offer a loyalty card, so on your first visit, ask at the till for your loyalty card and you will get a stamp for every hot drink purchased. Buy six hot drinks and get the seventh absolutely free!
We look forward to welcoming you in the café very soon.
