We are delighted to announce that The Project Cafe will be handing over their space to Locavore at the end of February. This follows on from the recent news that The Project Cafe CIC will cease trading at the end of February after six fantastic years.
We’re pleased to be able to step in to keep something great going in the city centre. This is especially true as we have so many shared connections with The Project Cafe; they have been collaborators back when we took on the property together for a shared pop up many years ago, and since then have been one of our best wholesale customers, and have inspired our own cafe menu. It feels right!
From the end of February, The Project Cafe CIC will stop trading. Locavore will then move into the space and re-open the cafe without many changes at the beginning of March.
The current staff team will join Locavore and carry things on much as they are without any major changes to the menu or layout. In short; the cafe will feel very much the same for customers and the staff team.
In the long term, we have ideas for making more of the cafe and will consider building upon the existing zero waste shop and extending the food offer to breakfast or dinners. We’ll be asking customers for their thoughts on this over time.
We’d like to say a huge thanks to The Project Cafe directors (Dorian, Eilidh & Tiril) for passing the baton to us and for all the hard work they, and their team have done to build the cafe, to make it what it is for their customers, the local community and the sustainable food movement in Glasgow.
We wish you all the very best for your future projects and pursuits, THANK YOU!
