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 are immensely lucky to share a gorgeous community garden with the Centre. 

With lots of space available, we have sunny tables, shady tables, tables for 2 to 6 and corner benches to relax in. What a choice 🙌

We have two four person tables (we are able to make these into one big table for groups of 6) available to book. To book one of these tables please email <a subject line BOOKING, with the date you want, a named lead person, total number of persons and a contact number. These can both be booked in one hour slots ie 10am - 11am or 10am to 12pm. The remaining tables are all available for walk ins - our one way system is back so please enter via the double yellow doors and we will show you through to the garden. See you Monday 3rd folks - keep your everything crossed for sunshine 🤞☀️ . . . . #countdowntoopen #hospitality #communitygarden #gardenspace #whitstable #towngarden #bookus #bookatable #whitstablecafe #paywhatyoucanmenu #communitycafe #buysocial #buylocal #buywhitstable #shopbythesea">
