It is super important to us at Sit Dog Cafe that your food is both ethically sourced and amazing! Check out our principles:
Ethically Sourced Foods And Furniture
We have taken special care to choose foods which are fair trade and support people and communities. For example, our tea bought from nemiteas.com provides employment to refugees, to give them local job experience and readiness skills to enter the UK workforce and help them integrate with society. The teabags are plastic free, packaging is biodegradable, and the teas are organic and fair trade certified.
When designing the cafe environment itself, the idea of doing it in an ethically sound way was prevalent from the start. All the furniture is second hand and renovated, and the few new items we have such as the counter, have been hand crafted by local master joiners, providing work locally.
Locally Sourced Produce
It is important to us at Sit Dog Cafe to both cut down on our carbon footprint, and also support local businesses. With this in mind, we source all of our meat, pastries, eggs and fresh produce within a 5 mile radius.
We are proud to have teamed up with a fantastic, new roastery for our speciality coffee, which has opened recently, at Cleatham, just 2 miles away. We are excited to be working with Shophouse Roastery and we know you will love their amazing coffee!
Natural Ingredients And Clean Eating
Part of the inspiration behind Sit Dog Cafe, is that Toni the owner hates going to eateries and receiving “ping food”. It is widely known that processed food is not great for our health and that good, wholesome, fresh ingredients help us stay healthy and live longer. And they taste better too!
Nearly all of our menu is super fresh, high quality ingredients, prepared in a simple manner, and served to you as an excellent plate of tasty food! We have taken care to design a very inclusive menu catering for meat eaters, vegetarians, vegans, gluten free and dairy free folk alike. We will also cater for slimmers too, which is why we always put sauces etc on the side and give you the option of toppings on your main meals. We have very few fried foods, but we can also use spray oil to facilitate those trying to lose weight.
