Cafe

Opening Times:

Our cafe is open all week! Monday – Sunday from 9am – 4pm.

Where possible, we have found local suppliers for our produce, because it offers the lowest environmental impact in terms of food miles travelled, supports the local economy and small businesses, just like us.

Park Life is a grassroots organisation started by local residents to serve the community. We felt that Park Cafe had to reflect this through the food on offer, by supporting local suppliers where possible, choosing suppliers who offer ‘real food’ that’s produced ethically and having as few unnecessary ingredients as possible.

We are proud to make many of our own menu items in house and from scratch – including our own jams, pickles, houmous, mayonnaise and fermented chilli sauce.

The meat that we use is free range and produced locally through Burrow Farm – who farm on Killerton Estate. This was an ethical choice – as a community resource it was important to put ethics first by ensuring welfare standards are high, as is the quality of meat.

We work with Sidwell St Bakery who are a community organisation and produce some of our tray bakes, sourdough bread and pitta breads that we offer. They are an artisan bakery who make all of their products in-house on Sidwell St, and offer volunteering, training and many supportive initiatives to their local community.

We aim to develop the menu as we go to keep it fresh and respond to how we can best serve our customers and community.

There are volunteering opportunities available in the cafe.

The menu was designed by Alex – Head Chef, to reflect his ideas about how food should be prepared and delivered. He wants it to be as homemade as possible, and a lot of thought goes into the menu items to ensure they have that wonderful homely feel. Alex and his kitchen team love cooking, aswell as big flavours, hopefully that comes across within the menu items.

Fried halloumi, tomatoes, red onion pickles vegan mayonnaise and chilli sauce

As a community cafe we tried to keep the prices as affordable as possible so not to exclude any parts of the wonderful community we live in.

Why not buy a ‘pay it forward’ voucher? Anyone can buy a voucher and pass it onto another customer, a friend, family, loved ones or a stranger. Let’s keep that community spirit alive!!!

We can’t wait to welcome you.
