The relaxed atmosphere, the professionalism of the staff and the quality of our cappuccinos and cakes mean that many of our customers enjoy meeting here week after week.

You’ll find the coffee shop right next to the village green in the heart of Stoke Gifford. It’s located in the main hall of beautifully adapted victorian village school rooms, which now form part of the St Michael’s Church Centre.

We look forward to making you welcome.

Coffeeshop Menu April 2018



The coffee shop is run to the highest standards of quality and food hygiene by a professional manager. But, as a not-for-profit community facility, many of our trained staff are volunteers.

There are always opportunities for local people to support the work of the coffee shop by giving some time each week to keep things running smoothly. This could be as little as just a couple of hours washing up, or several half days a week making cappuccinos and lattes.

Full training is provided.

Please contact the coffee shop manager if you would like to find out more.


Pokemon spotted on The Green

Its been great over the past few days to see groups of of children, parents and more than a few adults that seem to have forgotten the children hunting Pokemon on The Green and around the Church.

The Church, Old School Rooms & War Memorial are all Pokestops so why not let the kids go hunting whilst you sit outside the Coffee Shop and enjoy one of our freshly made coffees – you can even use the free wifi so you save some data for your own Pokemon hunting later on.

Just please try not to catch any during the services on Sunday!

Coffee Shop Volunteering Opportunities

The Old School Rooms Coffee Shop is an important part of the work of St Michael’s Church, and has a fantastic group of volunteers working in it. To continue to serve the community we need at least 20 volunteers a week, every week. Most volunteers work a 4 hour shift once a week (or once a month if working on Saturday). This is a great way to get to know people in the church and the local community.

Is this something you feel you would like to be part of?  If so, please do get in touch. Email or why not have a chat with Ann Cooke, Coffee Shop Manager, when you next drop in for Coffee?


Coffee Shop at Christmas
