About the Inspire Cafe

After the Centre’s revamp in 2013 the Inspire Cafe was opened as the key way in which the Strand Community Trust can deliver its vision of providing Dawlish and district with a welcoming environment in the town centre for all who pass its door. With help from United Christian Action in Dawlish and District (UCADD) and the Strand Community Trust (SCT), Inspire is run by the ongoing efforts of its dedicated volunteers and cafe manager Adam Gidney.

At the cafe we pride ourselves on offering healthy, homemade food, Fair Trade tea and coffee and freshly baked cakes at a great price.  We also strongly believe in offering social and spiritual support within the community, and we have volunteers who give their time for others.

Menus are seasonal and produce is sourced within Dawlish and the surrounding area. Food is prepared daily, and if we can accommodate your dietary needs we will.

We also proudly support the Suspended Coffee programme wherein people can give to the suspended pot, allowing those who may be struggling financially to enjoy a free hot drink.  

The cafe is open from 10.00am until 2.00pm, Tuesday - Friday.  For afternoon group bookings the cafe can be made available on request.
