More than just a hip and cozy coffee shop located in a railway station in Bristol, Strawberry Line Cafe is also a social enterprise that reinvests its profits in the community. To top it off, they hire people with learning disabilities, providing them with an income earning opportunity in a fun and social setting.
"We welcome visits from groups, whether of cyclists, parents and toddlers, or business people having meetings (we have WiFi!)," the website says. "Just give us a call in advance if there are more than about eight of you, and we’ll make sure there’s enough cake."
Strawberry Line Cafe is run by a community interest company that also takes the environment into consideration, selling local and fair trade breakfast, lunch and coffee and tea.
