Cafe Mosaic - Now Open

In February 2007 the new church hall was completed and the opportunity for a new exciting venture arose as there was to be a café in the new premises. On 9th May 2007 we had our Grand Opening, which was a huge success where many people turned up and enjoyed this new experience.

 

 

The Café has been a great success over the years with the word of our existence spreading around the local community and people are coming in from all walks of life. We have had many compliments about the Café as it provides a very welcoming atmosphere where people can not only just come for good quality food at very reasonably prices, but enjoy chatting to my team who are always sympathetic and reassuring when needs are required.

 

 

Local Produce. Local Suppliers.

 

 

Some people come early in the mornings for tea and coffee and try some of our homemade cakes while others come to tuck into our hearty Full English Breakfast in which we use produce from the local butcher.

 

Serving the Community.

 

At lunch times we are quite busy with teachers from the local schools having a short break from their busy day, retired people from the local area and mums who come in with their young children before going to Tea & Toys on a Wednesday, all trying various dishes from our varied menu.

 

Each week we have a homemade Soup of the Day, various sandwiches, baguettes, Panini, Ploughman’s Lunch, Jacket Potatoes and Omelettes all with fillings of your choice.

 

 

"Home-made"

 

In the Spring and Summer you can choose from our range of homemade salads, whilst our weekly Dish of the Day tends to suit the climate especially with our Winter Warmers such as Homemade Steak Pie, Cottage Pie and Curries.

 

To finish off we have a choice of homemade desserts and Ice Creams.

 

 

Open to Suggestions.

 

If you cannot find something you like from the Menu we are always happy to oblige and listen to your suggestions or if you have any special dietary needs we will always try to cater for them.

 

If you have not visited us yet please come and savour the excellent atmosphere and good food, if you need to pre-order in advance to save time we will have your food ready when you arrive or you can take it away with you.

 

 

colin beesley, café manager

 

When I left school I did my apprenticeship at the Adelphi, one of the prestige hotels in Liverpool, after four years I achieved my City and Guilds and then moved up to the Isle of Skye Hotel in Perth in Scotland to gain more knowledge and experience in the industry. After a year I moved to Jersey and worked as Head Chef at Uplands Hotel in St Helier for five years. I then met my wife and moved to Orpington.

 

I then changed my career and went into banking where I worked as a Bank Manager for seventeen years.

 

I took early retirement from the bank and when the opportunity for a Café Manager came about I jumped at the chance.

 

I was successful in gaining the position and set about the task of setting up the new venture.

We are open on Wednesday and Friday during school term times from 9.15am to 2.00pm.
