Our social enterprise cafes


Since 2013 our award winning cafes have been serving outstanding coffee and food in both Witney and Oxford and we have regularly been rated #1 restaurant in Oxford on TripAdvisor – read why in the words of our Oxford customers and also from our Witney customers. However, from day one our vision has been to change the lives of young people with learning disabilities and autism.

Our thriving cafes allow us to  run our in-house traineeship programs which provides a genuine stepping-stone to employment and independence for our trainees. Our cafes create incredible, life-changing opportunities for each individual.

We pride ourselves on our friendly and welcoming atmosphere, paired with what food critic described as ‘a whiff of M&S or Pret‘… we’ll take that as a compliment, although Paul, our manager, would argue our coffee is a league above!

We also provide superb catering options delivering exquisite lunchtime sandwich platters to many of the biggest firms in Oxford, including Siemens, Savills, Blake Morgan and many more. Find out more here.
