About The Quirky Bird – Social Enterprise Cafe
The Quirky Bird Café was Reborn in January 2020 as a social enterprise café.
Our focus is around the community, facilitation of support groups & mental health awareness. Over the past year we have facilitated the MS Support group and Fertility Support group in conjunction with approved bodies. As well as this, we have provided training opportunities to multiple vulnerable young adults to gain experience of the catering industry through a working café. Over the next year, we intend to develop more support groups to service more areas of need in the community with your help.
Another focus is on combatting loneliness & isolation. We aim to provide a safe space where adults in isolation feel welcome to come and have a coffee & a chat through the “chatter and natter” table initiative.
So here is the new way forward…for every sandwich platter, family lasagna, tart or Signature Afternoon Tea, we will donate one meal to Moira Food Bank!
Our “Pay It Forward” Scheme was launched earlier in the year, allowing customers to purchase an extra item for someone in need in the community; be it a coffee, bowl of porridge, lunch or family meal. Customers can add it to their online order or ask us to add it in-store. We keep it safe until someone in need pops in or we distribute it directly to Moira Food Bank. We are also acting as a collection point for Moira Food Bank and have a book exchange where all proceeds go directly to GAP.
Order ahead with our click & collect service. You can now order online via our website. Everything from a platter, fry, sandwich, salad, or a cheeky wee coffee & treat! These orders can be placed days or weeks ahead for convenience.
Call in and see us for a chat!
