Welcome to The Merstham Mix
Open Monday to Friday 8:30am – 2:00pm | Saturdays 9:30 – 2:00pm
Welcome to The Merstham Mix, a brand new café aiming to bring together the local community and provide healthy and affordable meals – plus great coffee – for everyone.
In response to the huge issue of global food waste, The Merstham Mix uses ingredients donated from local supermarkets and other food businesses – food that is still perfectly good to eat but that for one reason or another is destined to go to waste.
We offer a daily special of a hot and wholesome meal made from our food donations and and available at a price that makes it affordable to everyone. We will also offer a full café menu which has been designed to be both wholesome and tasty. Promoting healthy, home-cooked food is a key objective of the café.
Further down the line we hope to offer a cookery hub where the local community can learn skills such as cooking healthy food from scratch on a budget.
We want The Merstham Mix to be the friendliest, warmest, most welcoming café with delicious food that everyone can enjoy. We want to do our bit on a local level to help the global food waste crisis and to help ensure everyone has access to hot and wholesome food and the skills to replicate it in their own homes.
In Spring 2018, we raised over £20,000 through a Crowdfunding Campaign to allow us to extend The Merstham Mix opening hours and offer healthy and affordable meal options all day long on weekdays and on weekends too. A very big thank you to all those who helped us reach our target!
So whether you’re a Merstham resident who lives round the corner or someone from the wider community who fancies coming to a café that is doing something a bit different in the name of a good cause, we look forward to welcoming you.
