We share some of our favourite community and social enterprise cafés from around the UK that not only serve up a fab cup of coffee - but also give back to the local community. 


All over the UK, there are some incredible and inspiring non-profit cafés, serving up some of the best food and drink in town.  Whether they're providing training and employment to ex-offenders or homeless people; or supporting local businesses and running community-focused events, we can't think of anywhere better to enjoy your morning latte or while away an afternoon with friends over a socially-conscious, low-waste lunch. 

Here are some of the Eco-Age team's favourite community cafés across the UK:
