Well here we are ! 2018, if like me you are over 40 this sounds like something from the future!! and even odder to think its two years away from 2020, when surely there will be flying cars and hoverboards??
Any how we are now coming up to the second anniversary of owning the cafe and what a few years it has been. Sadly the cafe was in a terrible condition when we took over and so much more money needed spending on things like non leaking gas boilers and cookers, hygienic toilets, safe electrics, you know those sort of things, and we are just starting to recover from needing to do these elements and not all the exciting things which we initially thought we would be doing! We do still allow ourselves the treat of a beautiful Christmas tree and hope you all enjoyed it this past Christmas as much as we did.
This year our plan is to catch our breath, catch up on finances and keep going with some great advancements, one of which is trying to see if we can find more space for lunch time serving (we are sorry if you have struggled to sometimes get a table)! We are also starting again this year with Sound knowledge and live gigs on 1st Feb and welcome back Turin Brakes who were the first band we had in when we initially opened Cafe Thirty8.
We continue to support as many local traders as possible with purchasing our meat from Sumblers, local vegetable suppliers from Melksham, Milk from Wiltshire, ice cream from Rowde, and beer from Ramsbury! We are proud of what we have been doing and that we continue to create jobs and opportunity for local people. we are not going to make unsupported claims about being the best breakfast/ coffee etc etc. we are simply going to say we do our best and hope that continues to be good enough for the majority.
We could not do any of this without you, our loyal and wonderful customers and we do know this, and keep it at the forefront of our minds and we hope it continues to reflect in the food we prepare and the service we give. Please continue to support your local independent traders, keep the small business person a float and keep interest in the high street! Any recommendations you have, specials you would like then feel free to drop us a line or two, we can't guarantee we will do them all but we will listen.
Thanks again everyone and Happy New Year everyone x
