Even with our best efforts, bread is always is abundant supply at our projects. The chefs at The Good Plate…
Elsie’s was Fruitful Abundance’s original project and is now can be a model for others who want our help to set up a community cafe: making use of our rescued food, menus, and our handbook. .
Elsie’s cafe is open at the Market Street Community hub on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday for delicious brunches, lunches, cakes, coffee and a range of teas.
Our chefs take surplus food which supermarkets have donated to create homemade main meals, soups, a range of paninis, toasties and jacket potatoes. We were proud previous runner-ups in the Food and Drinks awards, as a Local Food Hero.
We serve coffee and cake or toast from 10 a.m and lunch from noon. Prices are competitive, with coffee at 50p, soup £1.50 and mains £3.
Most of our team are volunteers, led by manager Jenny, and you will find a warm welcome to a beloved community café.
Our posts show mouth-watering images of our meals and cakes, and we post menus on our social media pages. Do pop down to the corner of Exeter Place and Brunswick Place.
