Welcome to St Clare Hospice’s weekly coffee shop on Thursday and Friday mornings!

Café Clare is our weekly coffee shop. Just like a regular high-street coffee shop, Café Clare offers a place to meet and connect with other local people. Catch up with friends with breakfast bites, tea and coffee at great prices for you to enjoy.

Got a question about St Clare? Café Clare is also the perfect opportunity to find out more about your local hospice and the supportive services we have on offer. 

You’re also welcome to enquire about supporting our hospice charity, whether it be through fundraising initiatives or by joining our volunteering teams. If you want to speak to someone at the Hospice, Café Clare is the place to be!
