As spring emerges in the courtyard garden, we look forward to being able to gather as a community once again. Enjoying the sun dappled cobble stones, mingling with old friends and familiar faces, in the fresh air of the beloved outdoor space.
The Café has always been a window on Jamyang and a part of its extension into the wider world. There, people from all walks of life can find the space to reconnect with a different way of living, more mindful of our deepest interdependence with other beings, the environment and ourselves.
It’s with this vision in mind we are wonderfully pleased to share the news that Jamyang is teaming up this summer with hospitality pioneers Lena and Chris Greenwood, the names behind much loved local venues such as Louie Louie and The Tennis Cafe, to bring to life our ‘Yard Cafe’.
Hand in hand with Jamyang, the Yard Cafe will be serving delicious coffee and teas, a menu of lunch offerings and daily bakes and pastries every day, including weekends from 9am – 5pm.
Based on an ethos of generosity and compassion, the Yard Cafe will stock and serve coffee from ‘Redemption’ roastery; a charitable initiative providing a framework of training and a route back into community and work for young offenders. It will be part of the ‘Too Good To Go’ network; an endeavour to reduce food waste in the hospitality industry. And it will also run its own beverage based ‘Pay it Forward’ scheme, where coffee-lovers can buy flat whites and filters for members of the local community who may not be able to afford their own.
The gate to the courtyard will be swinging open on Monday 3rd of May and we can’t wait to welcome you back and spend time together once again.
