Children's Menu

After several weeks of deliberating and trialing various items, we would like to introduce you to our new and improved Children's Menu...

Our menu has been designed to suit all needs, catering for the little treats that children like when eating out, as well as providing opportunity for a healthier option.

We are well equipped to support health and dietary need, with meals changed to suit as required - please just speak with a member of staff when ordering.

We hope you, and your children, enjoy all that our new menu has to offer.


Charity Fundraising - Thank you

On the 15th November 2019, the team at Cafe Corsa came together to raise funds for both the 'Little Princess Trust' and 'Children in Need'.

Our Cafe Assistant Faye, and her sister Jeanette, both underwent a hair cut in aid of the 'Little Princess Trust', cutting 30cm from their hair! As well as this we took part in the Children in Need Annual Duck Race Sweepstake.

Because of our fundraising efforts, we are pleased to inform you that we raised a grand total of £141.34! A brilliant amount that is sure to help many children across the country and afar. Thank you!

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.
