St Elizabeth Hospice opens new café in Stowmarket
The St Elizabeth Hospice has put a fresh face on its café in Stowmarket.
The Moments Coffee Shop, in Bury Street, next to the hospice’s retail shop, was officially opened by Stowmarket Town councillor Barry Salmon on Wednesday.
It replaces the former Tall Orders café, which had been run by the hospice since July 2021.
Megan Kingston, manager, said: "We are so pleased to unveil Moments Coffee Shop and welcome in the local community to see our new menu, which will also have daily specials for them to enjoy.
"The work of the hospice is at the heart of the community and we are keen for Moments Coffee Shop to strengthen this tie and help us engage further with local people, who every year give fantastic support to the hospice.
"From hosting community events and volunteering at Moments Coffee Shop through to simply enjoying a coffee and a cake with us, there are a number of ways you can support the hospice at Moments and these all will make a difference to the patients and families under our care."
The new café menu features familiar favourites including jacket potatoes, toasties and Tall Order's scones, as well as ethically-sourced coffee.
All purchases made there go towards the St Elizabeth Hospice, which cares for over 3,000 patients and their families throughout East Suffolk, Great Yarmouth and Waveney living with progressive and life-limiting illness.
Cllr Barry Salmon, deputy mayor of Stowmarket, said: “We are delighted that St Elizabeth Hospice has had huge success with its charity shop in Bury Street and to see the charity expand into the former Tall Order’s Café demonstrates investment in the town.
“Knowing that having a coffee or lunch at the new Moments Café will help raise vital funds for patient care is a really special message and I hope the town supports them and takes the opportunity to try out their new menu.”
The café is open Monday to Saturday between 8.30am-3.30pm.
