The Water Lily Cafe – a community cafe offering good food and a warm welcome to everyone

Our cafe is open Monday to Friday  10am – 2pm with last orders at 1.45pm. Our menu serves good value, home-made and fresh food at very reasonable prices. We have a specials menu each week and our brunch menu can be served up until 1pm.

Come and enjoy a cuppa and a cake or a delicious brunch or lunch. Our cafe is used to help people in our community learn valuable workplace skills and all profits from the cafe go to support the work of The Water Lily Project, helping vulnerable women back to independent living. The cafe is wheelchair-friendly and our team are dementia-aware too.

Well-behaved dogs are also welcome at our cafe.
