COFFEE

We take a real pride in our coffee. We only grind locally roasted coffee beans and carefully extract espresso for our great range of coffees. Poblado Coffi supplies our house blend espresso but we like to mix it up with guest coffees from the likes of Llandudno based Heartland coffee roasters. Always freshly ground for the best possible flavour.

ART SPACE

We have a rolling exhibition celebrating the creativity and diversity of local artists. We provide the space where they can exhibit and sell, their work in an informal setting, whether its ceramics, photography, embroidery or painting.  

SHOP

We always have a good selection of loose leaf tea’s & wide range of soft drinks from the bar. Our little cafe shop always has something interesting to take away, whether its our Caban Garden apple juice, a jar of honey from our own bees, quirky snacks and drinks or some fresh, locally roasted coffee for you to take home.

Daily Specials

Famous for our daily specials blackboard we are embracing this and will be chalking up fresh, local and delicious dishes each day. Our daily Virtual Blackboard will be online from 10.00am each day.

CABAN’S KITCHEN GARDEN

THE ALLOTMENTS

We have a small but active allotment community at Caban where allotment holders work hard producing a range of fruit, veg and flowers. They also reap the physical and mental benefits of working an allotment and get to take home the fresh, delicious food.    

OUR APPLE TREES

As well as the dedicated orchard, we have numerous apple trees dotted around the site. Their glorious blossom each spring is a magnet for the bees, happy bees, happy apple trees! Each autumn we harvest the apples, press and bottle the juice for our very own Caban Garden Apple Juice. Served by the glass in the cafe and available for sale in the shop.

CABAN'S HONEY

Nestled up in the orchard is our small apiary, which thanks to our volunteer beekeepers, has an active colony of honey bees, producing our very own Caban Garden Honey. Keep your eye out for jars of honey in the shop from late summer onwards.

THE POLYTUNNEL

Tended by our kitchen garden volunteers, the polytunnel provides year round growing space and is an important nursery for getting the kitchen garden going again each spring. Whether it is herbs, tomatoes, garlic or greens we try and bring in produce form the kitchen garden year round.

Conference Room 

We have a dedicated meeting / conference room available for hire at Caban. The room is available for half day or full day use and is suitable for up to 12 people boardroom style, or twenty people theatre style.

We always aim to provide a friendly and efficient service to enable your meetings to run smoothly and productively. We will make every effort to accommodate any special requirements or requests that you may have. Caban’s popular cafe can cater for your requirements with buffet menus available to eat in the conference room or you can reserve a table in the cafe.

Tea, coffee, and cold drinks can always be provided.
