We’re pleased to be taking part in the Lewisham Local Warm Welcome programme, offering free tea and coffee and delicious homemade soup in our CaffA from December-March.

Our free teas, coffees and soups will be available to anyone who needs it. Pop in and pick up a token from our Pay-It-Forward-Board and trade it in at the CaffA to claim your hot drink or soup.

Teas and coffees will be available all day, Monday – Saturday, and soup is served between 1.30 – 2.30pm. Please note all our free goodies will be available on a first come, first served basis.

We’ll also be providing some board games for you to wile away the afternoon with a friend, and there are free books to read on our community bookshelf. You’re welcome to come and stay in our warm CaffA for as long as you like during our opening hours.
