The Cafe of Good Hope, the popular cafe and meeting place set up by the Jimmy Mizen Foundation has been awarded the contract for the soon to be built cafe in nearby Mountsfield Park.
Local residents have campaigned for a decent cafe for Mountsfield for some time and had to push the council into seriously considering the business case for permanent cafe.
The ‘current’ park cafe is set inside a transport container and was not reliably open, even during this past sweltering summer. The new cafe willbe either brick built or a modular unit.
All the best to the Mizens in this new venture- their cafe has done a fantastic job of training local young people in management and hospitality.
