About Camphill Milton Keynes
Founded in 1981, Camphill Milton Keynes provides support and a meaningful working life for adults with a wide range of learning difficulties. Over fifty residents live together with our volunteer co-workers in ten separate households. Together with employed staff they form a community of over one hundred people living on several sites within the neighbouring housing estates of Pennyland and Willen Park.
Our aim is to create a safe and stimulating environment, fully integrated into the surrounding community that allows individuals to develop in accordance with their own needs.
The Café is open Monday to Friday 10am to 4pm. The food we serve is vegetarian, freshly prepared on the premises and where possible we use Camphill grown or ethically sourced ingredients. Our aim is to create a peaceful atmosphere accompanied by good food and a first class friendly service.
The Camphill Bakery supplies the Café with all its bread using organic flour. They also produce freshly baked cookies, cakes and a selection of artisan breads that is on sale in our shop for you to purchase. Alongside this, our Land Craft Workshop create a range of preserves from our own grown soft fruit, vegetables and herbs. These are incorporated into our menu and are also for sale to take away from the Shop.
The Café is a Workshop for members of the Camphill Community providing training in food preparation, food safety and customer care. We very much hope you enjoy coming to the café. You are invited to add your comments or suggestions to the Visitors’ Book or speak directly to one of the team.

**Special Notice** – Brand New Lunch Experience!
As a valued customer we would like to share our vision for the development of the café within Camphill Milton Keynes Communities. Our Café offers adults with a range of abilities the opportunity to receive supported work experience. Each member of our team undertakes continuous on the job training and tuition in customer service, food safety and food preparation.
As part of our Community mission for people to reach their full potential we work closely with our bakery, garden and land-craft workshops. We wish to develop this further by providing additional teaching support and a shared work experience withing the workshops with the aim to maximise the use of our garden produce and bakery products within the Café menu offer.
In order to do this we are revising our menu from 12th June. We will offer a larger range of baked products both sweet and savory with a selection of hot and cold beverages throughout the day.
Between 12noon and 2pm we will offer our ‘House Salad’ – using our own Camphill Café creativity, and a little poetic license. This dish incorporates the best of the season, accompanied by fresh breads from our bakery with a range of homemade pates, dressings, dips and chutney, fine cheeses or eggs. Or seasonal vegan and vegetarian hot soups again accompanied by fresh bread from our bakery.
Check out the NEW menu here.
If you’d like to comment on our vision of developing our work experience whilst providing a service to the wider public we would welcome your feedback.
