The Moment Cafe


It’s a rare commodity to find a cafe that serves all your needs and wants - but that is what the Moment Cafe does! The cafe’s main values are centered on sourcing the freshest produce from your local suppliers in an effort to support the small businesses in their location. They focus on sustainability while creating a ‘special moment’ for each individual who walks on in. They achieve this by catering to all dietary requirements without hassle, embracing different cultures and traditions throughout their food and, of course, making a banging cup of coffee, obviously the essential ingredient for the perfect visit to any local cafe! Whether you are looking for a place to bring your grandchildren for a special treat, a quiet place to work alongside a cup of coffee or a quick breakfast to go, Moment Cafe has you covered. So come along and experience what we have to offer, and we’ll do our best to give you that special moment!
