‘When it comes to the ingredients served at St Werburghs City Farm Café in Bristol, Leona Williamson can think almost entirely in food yards.’ (Observer Food Monthly, 30th March 2008)
In 2008 St Werburghs City Farm Café won the Observer Food Monthly award for outstanding ethical achievement. As much food as possible served at the café is organic, fair-trade, wild and local, including eggs, meat, vegetables and salad from St Werburghs City Farm. The city farm is literally yards away from the café and anyone with surplus from the Ashley Allotments also just yards away can trade it at the café in return for something to eat or drink. The café is open 6 days a week, 10am – 4pm Winter, and 10am – 5pm Summer (closed Tuesdays). It provides delicious wholesome food, internet access, external catering, cookery lessons for children or adults, private parties, and cooking demonstrations. The café has been managed independently by Leona Williamson since 2005.
