Café Project

For those wanting to get back to work or learn how to cook delicious meals this is an excellent project. We offer training in health and food hygiene, customer service, food preparation and general kitchen skills. Our Café Project Supervisor is an amazing chef with a real passion for food and people.

Making a Difference

Our chefs have gone on to attend catering college, find full-time work in restaurants and hold successful dinner parties. Learning to cook is a basic life skill that can be pleasurable, social and healthy!
The profits made by the café team help fund SMART – every time they serve lunch or cater for an event, they are helping to support people affected by mental ill-health.

Every day our Café dishes up delicious breakfasts and lunches. We also serve the cheapest (and tastiest!) teas and coffees in Chelsea. Our lunchtime meals are healthy and nutritious, and always include an equally nice vegetarian dish.

Opening Times…
  • Open everyday 10:00am to 4:00pm
  • Breakfast is served from 10am – 11:30am
  • Lunch is served from 12pm – 1:30pm


Members can volunteer on the Café counter, help in the kitchen, learn food and hygiene skills or be employed as a chef. If you would like us to cater and/or host your event just email
