Providing a focal point for local communities to come together by training groups to run their own cafe. 

The Kingsmead Community Cafe


The Kingsmead Community Cafe is a project funded by Hackney Marsh Partnership. The Project began with the desire to offer an affordable, healthy food option on the Kingsmead estate that could provide local residents with a welcoming and relaxed space to meet. After an initial period of community consultation it was established that a lunch time cafe would provide the most appropriate choice.

In March 2014 we began training a remarkable group of volunteers to guide them through the steps of setting up, running and shaping their community cafe. Since completing their training the volunteers have gone from strength to strength creating exciting, affordable menus in a welcoming community space.  


Visit the cafe on Wednesdays at 12.30pm
