Not just your typical cafe...

KindaKafe, Norwich exists to build communities and reduce loneliness and social isolation.

We support the aims of the Missing Kind charity, which is establishing a global network of communities, venues and projects, supporting those with a passion for social justice to make their difference to the world. Find out how you can join the KindaKafe movement here.
