Hospice opens Moments Coffee Shop in Stowmarket

St Elizabeth Hospice has unveiled Moments Coffee Shop in Stowmarket.

Located on Bury Street, in Stowmarket next to the hospice’s retail shop, Moments Coffee Shop was officially opened by Councillor Barry Salmon, of Stowmarket Town Council, on 11th May and replaces the former Tall Orders café, which had been run by the hospice since July 2021.

The new Moments Coffee Shop menu features familiar favourites, such as jacket potatoes, toasties and the much-loved Tall Order’s scones, as well as a number of new tasty additions to whet the appetite, and ethically-sourced coffee from artisan Suffolk coffee roasters, freshpac.

Megan Kingston, coffee shop manager at Moments, said: “We are so pleased to unveil Moments Coffee Shop and welcome in the local community to see our new menu, which will also have daily specials for them to enjoy.

“The work of the hospice is at the heart of the community and we are keen for Moments Coffee Shop to strengthen this tie and help us engage further with local people, who every year give fantastic support to the hospice.

“From hosting community events and volunteering at Moments Coffee Shop through to simply enjoying a coffee and a cake with us, there are a number of ways you can support the hospice at Moments and these all will make a difference to the patients and families under our care.”

Open Monday to Saturday between 8.30am-3.30pm, Moments Coffee Shop aims to strengthen the hospice’s relationship with existing supporters as well as introduce new members of the community to the hospice.

With every drink, meal and snack purchased helping to generate further funds to support its services, which every year care for over 3,000 patients and their families, throughout East Suffolk, Great Yarmouth and Waveney, who are living with progressive and life-limiting illness.

Cllr Barry Salmon, Deputy Mayor of Stowmarket said: “We are delighted that St Elizabeth Hospice has had huge success with its charity shop in Bury Street and to see the charity expand into the former Tall Order’s Café demonstrates investment in the town.

“Knowing that having a coffee or lunch at the new Moments Café will help raise vital funds for patient care is a really special message and I hope the town supports them and takes the opportunity to try out their new menu.”
