We have recently opened a Yurt Cafe as part of our new meanwhile project.
Our Yurt Café serves craft coffee, healthy and homemade food. Our tea comes as you like it, and our coffee is roasted to perfection in Peckham, coming to us direct from Old Spike Roastery.
The yurt cafe is part of St Katharine s Precinct. This project is the first step in the next phase of The Foundation s mission of worship, hospitality and service in the East End building connections with and between communities through reflection, conversation, art, community projects and food.
Getting here is easy - it s just a 2 minute walk to Limehouse DLR station with Bank and Canary Wharf just 5 minutes away.
In keeping with the serene environment there are no TV s in the bedrooms, however high speed WiFi is available free of charge throughout the foundation.
