Bonnington Centre Community Café

The Café has reopened after essential renovation as a vegetarian and vegan eatery. The kitchen is in full use again in its beaming new facility.

The revived Café will function as a daytime community resource that prioritises local people. Hosting regular recurring and one-off events including workshops, clubs and pop-ups, the Café will also host an ongoing program of monthly arts exhibitions that will feature the works of local, associate, and invited artists.

BCCA pursues a policy of emphasis on the facilitation and participation of people living in the immediately local community whilst remaining open and welcoming to all comers from far, wide and beyond beyond!

The Café aims to function and serve as an inviting, homely accessible venue for daytime activities that cater for the creative expression, inclusive access, likes and preferences of local people. Evenings will continue to be dedicated to the production and serving of a variety of good hearty and healthy affordable vegetarian and vegan food, with an emphasis on encouraging and showcasing local cooks.

Any help that you can offer will be much appreciated. Please read our ‘Wish List’ on the Café window.
