We were lucky enough to be able to have a chat with the owner Nabil, he was welcoming and didn't hesitate to answer any questions we had, he has a great belief on helping the local area and always on the look out for ways to give back to the local community, profits made in the cafe are placed back into their Chai Life Foundation, Community groups can get in touch and apply for help with any projects.
They are also looking to bring in the community token, anyone can purchase a token for just £1 which then you can pass on to someone in need and send them into Chai and they can enjoy a treat for themselves.
Chai has a very welcoming feel to it from the moment you walk in, we saw a variety of different people come in and everyone raved about the desserts, students came in from the college, set up laptops and got to work with a coffee, they had a lovely bookshelf full of books for you to enjoy.
Walls were lined with works of art from local artists, motivational quotes filled another wall.
Now onto the the food...
I had a white chocolate cookie dough this was amazing... I just remembered to get a picture before I demolished it, we chose a chai tea brand name the tea project, it was the perfect accompaniment to my very sweet pudding, added bonus of everything being organic and Fairtrade where possible.
you need to visit this place, there is something for everyone and I am already planning my next visit.
