  • The Rosemary


    Ephraim-at-No.178The Rosemary is an exciting new social enterprise Hungarian cafe-bar situated on New Cross Rd that works in partnership this Toucan Employment.

    They serve a fresh rotating menu featuring Hungarian Breakfasts, fresh juices, world wines, and of course some hearty Goulash.

    The Rosemary has a programme of exciting events in the evenings, including Sunday night Tango classes, vinyl record fairs and live music.
    Toucan Employment offers a structured training programme in hospitality and work placements at the cafe.

    Toucan’s users are key workers in the cafe, acquiring many key skills which will be hugely beneficial not just in pursuing a career in hospitality but in wider life. Customer service, barista and cooking skills are just a few of the areas in which the users are gaining meaningful experience.

    The cafe has grown very quickly into an emerging community hub for the New Cross area. We are currently running a number of community outreach projects from the cafe including cookery classes for teenagers and separate sessions open to all. Plus the cafe hosts a number of meetings for community groups in the area.

    This means that The Rosemary will be able to serve the wider community and to broaden its customer range at the same time – a double win!
