Welcome to The Umbrella Café CIC, Whitstable

Our community cafe, social kitchen and project spaces all exist for the same purpose; to reduce social isolation, food poverty and food waste in our local area. We run not for profit and are accountable to our community. Four days a week we throw open our doors to welcome all in for lunches, home-made cakes and drinks. We have a gorgeous community garden, a cosy Cafe space and both are fully accessible. We welcome friendly dogs on leads. Behind the scenes we are funded to help us deliver our social impact by The National Lottery and Kent Community Foundation. We’re looking forward to seeing you soon. Come and grab a coffee and see what we have to offer.

We have a couple of spaces left on our Kids Cook Out course run by the fabulous Katy @minnokitchen. Over six weeks the kids learn new recipes, try new foods and cook together. At the end of each session they sit and enjoy the fruits of their labour together! Social eating is known to increase appetite and improve variety of diet too- and it works! Supported by funding from #ReconnectKent allows us to provide these fun sessions to you for free! If you would like to book a space for your 7-11year old for the course starting on Thursday 21st April drop us an email <a">
