About Our Coffee Shop

We make coffee because we love it. We love cake even more. We only make food that we love; it includes lots of vegetarian and vegan options. And we serve it all with passion. Being in a wooden building with zero extraction means getting very creative when designing a menu that is accessible to as many people as possible… We think we’ve done alright! If it's not for you, then that's ok.

The Green Wood Centre, Coalbrookdale, where we are located, was built in 1998 as an energy-efficient and sustainably sourced education and office facility by The Green Wood Trust. A café was added a while later which we took over as a family-run business in 2016 after years of searching for the perfect location. The rest of the site is the national HQ of The Small Woods Association, and we're sure you'll love this unique woodland location as much as we do. 

We look forward to welcoming you to our coffee shop retreat
