Often rated #1 for coffee and tea in Oxford by TripAdvisor, 70,000 customers each year visit the Yellow Submarine cafés because of the quality of the coffee & food. It just ‘so happens’ that they may leave with a different perception of ‘disability’ too: their two social enterprise cafés are co-staffed by trainees with learning disabilities – Yellow Submarine believes people with learning disabilities and Autism deserve to live life to the full. They serve delicious ‘Life Changing Bakes’ made on site by trainees, as well as fresh sandwiches, toasties, soup and salads – and of course great coffee and tea. Handily situated on Park End Street, between Oxford’s train station and the city centre, and also in Witney’s leisure centre, why not drop in and sample for yourself? They also offer excellent corporate catering, and a new online shop, ordering and delivery service. If you can’t visit them in person, take a look at the website.
Listen to Sophie from the Yellow Submarine team on S2 E13 of the Independent Oxford Podcast.
I love working at our Oxford café; it is such fun thanks to our trainees who make every day so special and different. We learn so much from each other! Our Life Changing Bakes project adds an extra dimension – we make the old favourites as well as trainees’ chosen specials, and our customers – individual and corporate – are an intrinsic part of our community. We believe people with learning disabilities and autism deserve to live life to the full, and our café traineeships are one way we deliver our ambition.
