New Year Closure - Moving into Lockdown #3

After a brief respite, we are afraid to say that, the recent Government announcement, and the moving of the county into Lockdown #3, means only one thing...

...We must close our doors once again.

We are sorry that we cannot welcome you back, after the Christmas break, as originally planned. 

Please rest assured that, although we remain closed for the time being, we will be back as soon as restrictions and safety allows.

We wish all customers, suppliers and acquaintances a happy new year, and look forward to some more positive news in the coming weeks.

Best Wishes

The team at Café Corsa

Cafe Newt = Cafe Corsa

Café Newt is changing it's name and becoming...Cafe Corsa!

Over the next few weeks we will be working hard to ensure our name change

runs smoothly, amending our brand to meet the requirements identified.


Please don't worry - we will be keeping everything that you expect when

visiting...great customer service, great food and of course our great coffee!

The Blackmore Vale Taste Awards 2019

Presenting our finalists...the team at Cafe Corsa.

On the Tuesday 5th November, we took the opportunity to attend The Blackmore Vale Taste Awards 2019 at Wincanton Racecourse. We enjoyed a lovely meal and some lovely company, although unfortunately did not bring home the winner's award.

Needless to say, we are extremely proud of the team at Cafe Corsa and the hard work and dedication given to get us into the finals in the first place.

Well done everyone at Cafe Corsa.
