Keeping older adults occupied and connected to the outside world is essential for their mental health and emotional well-being.
As simple as it sounds, choosing to go to a coffee shop is a brilliant way to bring a smile to their face, and also an opportunity for them to stay in touch with the local community. Coffee shops provide a safe and welcoming environment, which will also maintain your social life.
We highly recommend the next few locations showcasing their delicious food and welcoming atmosphere.
An example of great things that come in small packages. The Coffee Tree is a little gem serving tasty cooked meals and snacks (prepared to order) as well as delicious homemade cakes and drinks. The coffee shop opened its doors at the end of March 2022, owned and managed by Rebecca and Michael. They pride themselves in offering a healthy and fresh selection of food whether you eat in or order your food for take away.
Have you thought about treating your loved ones to a freshly made “All Day Breakfast”? Would you prefer crispy bacon or grilled to perfection? Poached or fried eggs? Chef Michael will go the extra mile to deliver plates full of personality and a personal touch. You can choose from tasty sandwiches to jacket potatoes, vegetarian dishes to flavoursome homemade soup. Are you having a party or want to treat someone to a special afternoon tea, The Coffee Tree can also provide bespoke finger buffets and afternoon teas for collection.
Their service is second to none but the quality of their food locally sourced, collaborating with butchers PS Tilbury in Bedgrove and eggs delivered from Dinton Farm to maximise the quality and taste.

Treacles Tea Rooms is something much more than a traditional coffee shop, it’s a community. This amazing place opened its doors 7 years ago by the experienced chefs Dave and Rowland. Treacles is set in a period building over two floors, combining a relaxed and welcoming environment with a log burner lit through the winter months. The staff provides a welcoming, fun, knowledgeable, and safe atmosphere.
Their dishes are a clever mix of traditional meals as well as those that are more current or easy on the go. From a traditional English breakfast to smashed avocado brunch, bacon & avocado panini to their famous butchers’ pie of the day just to name a few.
