We will close at 4pm on Thursday, April 9th

Please note we have changed the Saturday opening time, due to shortage of volunteers. Please Contact us if you would like to volunteer to work in the shop or to support us by baking cakes, making soup or doing laundry. Thank you.

Our Recipe Book

In 2009, to celebrate our 20th anniversary a recipe book was compiled with the help of  our volunteer bakers and soup-makers.

It is available for purchase at The Link Café and some of the recipes are featured here on this website for you to try out at home.

We hope you enjoy trying out the recipes or better still come and enjoy them ready-made for you at The Link Café.
