Located across the North East and Cumbria

Good food and a warm welcome

We have cafés across the North East and Cumbria and we’d love to welcome you in sometime soon.

Our cafés are based on sites where the NHS provides mental health, learning disabilities and neuro-rehabilitation services and are open to the public.

We open for breakfast and lunch and offer a range of options alongside delicious coffee.

So if you are hungry, need a break or want to catch up with friends and have a coffee then we’ve got just the spot for you.
