about star anise café

Good food, family and community are the three pillars of our Stroud café.

Our kitchen staff, trained at Concord Institute, are inspired by macrobiotic and whole foods cuisine. We offer a changing menu of seasonal, fresh and innovative food including sourdough breads, pastries and cakes made daily on the premises. We use organic ingredients wherever possible and endeavour to source from local businesses. 

Our menu is predominantly vegetarian with the occasional fish dish, and we always cater for vegan and gluten-free diets. 

As well as being conscious of the integrity of our ingredients, we also believe that food made in an environment of love and joy takes any dish to a whole new level of flavour and nourishment. As such, our staff endeavour to work together to create this environment; we are a family. 

We also know that the community of Stroud makes us what we are. We open up our space to the community in whatever way it is served best - holding community run events, providing work experience opportunities and simply being here for people to come in, have coffee and do their thing.

locally sourceD FOOD 

In the summer season we get our salads and vegetables from Stroud Community Agriculture and Stroud Slad Farm, as well as edible marigold, chive and nasturtium flowers. Throughout the year we source all our vegetables from Global Organic Markets

We bake all our cakes, cookies and croissants from scratch without using any refined sugar and we bake our sourdough bread daily.

WONDERFUL coffee

We are proud to serve artisan coffee from local speciality roasters Extract and by trained baristas. Appearing in the South West Coffee Guide, we recommend you come try our delicious coffee.

We also serve an extensive selection of Mr. Tea's Teas who are based in Bristol. Green, black, herby or fruity - we've got it. 

FANTASTIC events

We regularly play host to a wide range of events including live music, drama productions, poetry readings, art exhibitions, story telling, and coffee tasting, just to mention a few.

The lively atmosphere of the café offers a warm welcome with friendly service both in our bright, open space and our sunny courtyard outside.

Please see the events page for more details.
