Did you know the R.E.A.L. Foundation Trust has a new Coffee Lounge open to the public?
Roots opened in November ’22 at the Charity Hub, The Landmark at Pleasley, and runs as an independent subsidiary, staffed by local coffee gurus Phil, Toni and Klair.
Not only does Roots offer a local venue for residents to meet and socialise but it also offers training opportunities for young people who have a desire to enter the world of catering and hospitality.
As the coffee lounge has gathered momentum over the last couple of months (rated 2nd best coffee
shop in Mansfield by the Chad!) the demand to open in the evening has grown too.
On Thursday 26th January, Roots opened its doors in the evening and hosted local jazz duo, Tuesdays Child. To accompany the live music, Roots collaborated with a local pizza maker, ‘Shakin’ Off The Crust’ to offer incredible, fresh food. The night was an amazing success, with tables full right up until 9pm.
Thursday nights will now be a regular late night event. Check out @rootscoffeelounge for updates.
Roots is open from 7am – 4pm for the rest of the week and 9am – 2pm Saturdays. R.E.A.L. staff can
flash their ID for a special discount but, as a not for profit their prices are always low. All surplus is donated to the R.E.A.L. Foundation Trust too so each coffee bought supports the charity’s activities.
There’s space for social and business events with a dedicated space for free hire, just buy
a coffee when you’re there!
