Who are we?

Central Street Café is a community-focused charity, part of St Luke’s Trust (reg. charity 207497) which also incorporates St Luke’s Community Centre and Central Street Cookery School.

St Luke’s Trust strives to improve the conditions of life for the people that live in and around the area by offering a safe and welcoming space in the community and Central Street Cafe is another facet to this. All profits from Central Street Café go towards covering costs for over 11,500 (2015 figure) delicious, healthy and high-quality meals that feed hundreds of elderly Islingtonians each year. With an annual target of over £78k profit, every pound you spend with us goes towards this essential work in the local community. In addition, we aim to serve food that is ethically-sourced, organic and fair-trade whenever possible – and all our staff are paid London Living Wage or more.


We’re proud to be a London Living Wage Employer
