Starting on the 27th of July for 10 weeks, Coffee Craft will be offering high quality and affordable coffee, tea and other beverages, complimented by delicious cakes and a daily menu including homemade quiche, soup, sandwiches and snacks. There will vegetarian and gluten-free options, and many of our products will be locally sourced: our coffee is supplied by ‘Volcano’ in West Norwood, tea by Birchall Tea and cakes by ‘Sophie’s Cake Studio’ – both based in Sydenham.Coffee Craft will provide a relaxed and friendly environment for everyone in the South Norwood to enjoy, working with the Stanley People’s Initiative to continue establishing Stanley Halls as a centre for community interaction and celebration.
Michelle is supported by The Prince’s Trust, and is keen to work alongside Stanley Halls in promoting the regeneration of the area and offer an additional daytime facility to their already varied and popular events programme. She says,
“I’m so excited about this venture. After our own experience and speaking with many locals, this is just what the area needs.”
Initially opening 10am to 4pm, Monday to Friday, Coffee Craft will be developing a calendar of events and sessions to cater to a range of community groups within South Norwood. It will offer free Wi-Fi, be family friendly, wheelchair accessible, dog-friendly, and also has outside space for customers to enjoy.
