WHAT WE HAVE TO OFFER
WELCOME TO OUR CAFÉ
Opening in August 2019, Prep Table was offered the opportunity to run an independent café space in partnership with the NHS. After a long period without a catering space in the Centre, we have worked hard to build a profitable café model. We offer staff and trainees at the Comely Bank Centre access to high quality, locally sourced, fresh, and healthy food; with a focus on vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, as well as locally roasted espresso coffees and a range of home-made and healthy option snacks.
Our café is committed to reducing waste and minimising our impact on the environment. Here are some examples of measures we have taken:
We have worked hard to refine our methods and processes to ensure customers have different food options whilst minimising food waste.
We are continually working to minimise packaging waste from our suppliers - our Mossgiel Farm milk is delivered in reusable containers and we use compostable coffee cups.
We are always looking to find eco-friendly alternatives in the café - for example, we have replaced cling film with reusable silicon lids.
LEARN KITCHEN SKILLS WITH US
We host group cooking sessions at our café, after opening hours - or we can host them at your kitchen space. The attendees can be any age, can be people you support, your community or your colleagues. Skills can be tailored for the home, community spaces or your workplace, giving yourself and your colleagues and volunteers the ability to run a kitchen and share your new skills with clients.
Sessions can be as little as an hour, or as much as a full day.
